Wonder why Facebook's algorithm didn't align "Jew hater" with it's most obvious companion: Progressive.

“Entrenched anti-Semitic views” very rare among whites and Asian Americans, common among blacks and Latinos

I am Jewish. My partner is Hispanic. His family is shockingly racist – most frequently towards blacks, but also Jews, whites, Asians and 'the Middle Easterns' (this seems to include Arabs, Armenians, Indians, Persians, etc) whom they often malign.

Notwithstanding made-up micro-aggressions, I'd never heard overt racism before this relationship.

But I'm sure they only think and say these things because of patriarchal white supremacy.

Keith Ellison, deputy chair of the DNC, thinks that Israel dictates US policy.

The Left does have an anti-semitism problem.

Except the do. Progunners are the lest anti-semitic out there.

I bet if the algorithm correlated with blacks with crime, they'd say it just shows how Facebook is terrible.

I wonder what other things 'second amendment' can be related to and what other groups, much larger, could be attached?

Jesus, Gruber, 2,274 people, then broadening to an unrelated category to get a larger target, and BOOM! Facebook is evil.

I did FB ads before. They suck. But one thing I found was that I got better feedback/traffic when I targeted the actual group and didn't just target a larger audience. But it's a tactic for all advertising.

God, man, quit this political shit that you don't understand for a second. Stick to the Mac. Stick to Apple. You're good at those things.

"I don't know anything about Facebook, but I irrationally hate it and am 100% sure I'm right about it." -Gruber and the rest of The Twitteratti

Facebook doesn't create these ad categories, they're automated, and algorithmically generated, based on user patterns, etc. There are surely hundreds of thousands of them. The fact that FB didn't think to blacklist "jew hater" is an obvious oversight to be sure (or is Gruber assuming the MARK ZUCKERBERG is an anti-Semite?), but it's one that is already probably corrected.

Note that Facebook, unlike Twitter, actually has and enforces user guidelines that don't allow violent hate groups, ISIS recruiters, gun dealers, pornographers, etc. to use their site to spew their vile shit into the world. (FB also has an official age restriction (13) to use their service, where Twitter does not—cause if you're going to have porn and ISIS recruiters running around, you definitely want to let the kids in).

So while the alt-right is churning out their anti-Semitic memes and Trump and his bottomless pit of Russian bots and American racists are all on Twitter and the platform protects their "free speech" rights and refuse to shut them down even when they threaten and harass people. All of that is a non-issue. It's Facebook's not-actually-usable anti-Semitic ad categories that are the REAL problem. Sigh.

"Jew Haters" would be a clever category for a holocaust museum to use to have an impact.

Hmm, I feel like there's some historical figure who was a "jew hater," yet very much not a gun enthusiast. Rather, he was not very enthusiastic about jews having guns.

>Two: as David Simon noted, “I kind of love that ‘Jew hater’ aligns cleanly with the Second Amendment demographic. The algorithms don’t lie, do they.”

Fascinating how glaringly stupid David Simon is considering his great work in writing The Wire.
