Facebook has de-prioritized removing hateful slurs against white people, men and Americans, instead focusing on blocking slurs against black people, gays, Jews and other groups. The change on Thursday in Facebook's algorithm is a shift from the social network's 'race-blind' system that previously removed anti-white insults as well posts such as 'men are dumb' or 'Americans are stupid.' [SNIP] 'We know that hate speech targeted towards under-represented groups can be the most harmful, which is why we have focused our technology on finding the hate speech that users and experts tell us is the most serious,' said Facebook spokeswoman Sally Aldous.

Simple solution to this arrogant BS by that little punk Zuckerberg. Everyone leave Facebook and all at once.. If all white people and Trump supporters do this Facegarbage will be out of business in a year and good riddance. We really do have this power because at the end of the day we are the customers who keep Facebook solvent. Seems like a pretty good business opportunity for someone to set up an alternative to Facebook exists right now.. The sheer hubris of these Social Media so-called tycoons is beyond belief.. They will fall hard and fast.

Unfortunately, FB is right now the best vehicle for local and family news. But, I don't have to buy anything that is advertised and can (or so they say) stop advertisements of individual companies. Takes a little more time but worth it. Let the advertisers know you aren't buying.

Are these people as important as they think they are? If you’re really going to form opinions based on what you see on Facebook and Twitter it’s really no different than listening to or believing network news or God forbid CNN. They’re all singing from the same hymnal. Either you are a reasonably intelligent human being or you are a flaming idiot who will believe anything. That is the true division in America.

I can't wait for all these "social media" monstrosities to be gone. All they do is encourage the mentally ill to vent their poisonous hatred against normal Americans. It is my hope that the "conspiracy theories" are right and the U.S. government will seize all these hate America platforms, confiscate the ill-earned money of the owners, and send them off to Gitmo.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging Americans to avoid all travel to Mexico as cases of COVID-19 continue to surge across the Central American nation. Within the last two weeks, Mexico has surpassed more than 1.11 million confirmed cases of coronavirus and reported over 105,000 deaths – the fourth highest virus death toll in the world, behind the US, Brazil and India respectively. Mexico also has the second-highest case fatality rate per every 100,000 residents of any country in the world at 9.5 percent. Only Yemen, with a fatality rate of 28.3 percent, has fared worse.

Blood collected by the Red Cross between December 13 and January 17 was later sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to be tested for antibodies to coronavirus. Testing revealed antibodies to the virus that causes COVID-19 in 39 samples from blood donated between December 13 and December 16. Those donations were made in California, Oregon, and Washington.

[SNIP] During a meeting in a manager’s office in June 2019, Fresse noticed a box of Starbucks’ Pride shirts on a desk. She then asked if she’d be required to wear one, which would be “tantamount to forced speech” because she believes marriage is defined by the Bible as between “one man and one woman only.”

Dennis Kucinich. Few names in Cleveland politics elicit stronger reactions. Elected mayor in 1977 at age 31, he is best known for a tumultuous two-year tenure and for refusing to sell the city-owned utility – then Muny Light -- as the city faced default in 1978, 42 years ago next month. Now 74, Kucinich is publishing a book, “The Division of Light and Power,” about his effort to save the power company, now known as Cleveland Public Power. In an exclusive interview with 3News, Kucinich talked about the book, the current state of the troubled utility and whether his future includes another bid for mayor.

If reports on the ads coming for Super Bowl LV are to be believed, the funny and heartwarming ads, the cute kids and heroic animals will be running alongside Black Lives Matter themes. Along with social justice activism, advertisers may be preparing commercials filled with coronavirus messaging as well, according to Front Office Sports. Bill Oberlander, the co-founder of the social justice ad agency OBERLAND, insisted that marketers can no longer “duck” racial, social, and political issues. “It’s going to be ‘Black Lives Matter,’ it’s going to be COVID.

Is a rebellion against President Trump brewing in federal courts in the District of Columbia? We ask because of the latest development in the case of General Michael Flynn. A judge has questioned whether Mr. Trump's pardon of the general might be "too broad." The judge who made that comment isn't handling the Flynn case. His comment is shocking, though, while the judge who is sitting on General Flynn's case has yet to respond to the government's motion that the case be dismissed as pardoned. It was back in July that these columns first warned that Judge Emmet Sullivan, who

Voters who imagine that they control what the government does are mistaken. Our federal government is really at the mercy of the huge unelected bureaucracy, the Deep State, that represents the “big” in our bloated federal government. Everybody who lives within 15 miles of Washington is part of it, or so it seems. Of all the ways in which the Left is attempting to redefine America, its support for an enormous bureaucracy has been the most successful.The people we elect—the president and Congress—are merely a front for the Deep State. The federal government has become separated from the American public that it is supposed to serve.

For the third time in less than 30 hours, four justices on the state Supreme Court dealt President Donald Trump a setback Friday, saying they wouldn't accept a lawsuit by Trump allies who wanted to let Republican lawmakers instead of voters decide how to cast the state's electoral votes. As with two decisions Thursday, Friday's ruling was 4-3, with conservative Justice Brian Hagedorn joining the court's liberals to rebuff the president as he seeks to take away Democrat Joe Biden's narrow win of the state. "The relief being sought by the petitioners is the most dramatic invocation of judicial power I have ever seen," Hagedorn wrote.

A federal appeals court in Georgia has approved an expedited review of pro-Trump attorney Sidney Powell’s request for a forensic review of voting machines in three counties. Powell filed a lawsuit last week alleging that Dominion Election Systems voting machines used in the 2020 election in Georgia are insecure and allow foreign agents to meddle in the U.S. election. U.S. District Judge Timothy Batten Sr. issued an order on Sunday restricting officials in Georgia’s Cherokee, Cobb, and Gwinnett counties from resetting Dominion Election Systems voting machines because of the lawsuit.
