Facebook India - Towards a Tipping Point of Violence
Caste and Religious Hate Speech equalitylabs.org/facebook-india… 2019 report by Equality Labs
“Facebook staff lacks the cultural competency needed to recognize, respect, and serve caste, religious, gender, and queer minorities.”
“Hate speech targeting Indian caste, religious, gender, and queer minorities is rampant across Facebook.”
“Beyond the larger issue of the drafting process of Facebook’s community standards, the major concern is that the standards are not available in all Indian languages, despite the fact that millions of users speak, read, and write in these languages.”

What the fuck.
Social media platforms should *never* be operating in locations where they can’t properly translate the language. Jesus Christ.
🤯🤯🤯 holy shit

Vigilante Facebook group Clean the Nation contributed with a network of other groups to the termination of 50 individuals from their jobs and schools. Further some individuals were even charged with sedition. When Facebook finally took down the group, the owner made a new group.
