Facebook moderators are trained to protect “white men” and not “black children” from hate speech

  • A set of training materials leaked to ProPublica reveal the guidelines for what Facebook moderators should consider “hate speech” and what counts as an attack that should be taken down, or could trigger an account suspension. 
  • Included is a slide deck about protected groups that show why it’s not OK to curse at men, but why it’s fine to call for the complete segregation and exclusion of refugees and migrants.
  • The most alarming of the slides is a quiz from the slide deck that shows three groups: black children, female drivers and white men. The quiz asks which of the subgroups “do we protect” with content moderation and post take-downs. 
  • The correct answer is: “white men.” Read more (6/28/17)

You know what’s fucking weird to think about? People make those Facebook minion memes. Someone goes into a software and hand crafts those minion memes. Who are they, why do they do this? I mean for the longest time I imagined those things just appeared into the ether, to torment us. All and I mean all of the minion memes I’ve seen are bit crushed to hell and back and have like 16 filters on them. Where are the originals and who are the creators? I need answers damnit.

U.S. Malaria Donations Saved Almost 2 Million African Children

> Over the last decade, American donations to fight malaria in Africa have saved the lives of nearly two million children, according to a new analysis of mortality rates in 32 countries there.

> The study, published by PLOS Medicine this month, looked at the long-term effects of the President’s Malaria Initiative, a program started by President George W. Bush in 2005 that has spent over $500 million a year since 2010. […]

> They found that countries helped by the malaria initiative had 16 percent fewer deaths in [the under 5] age group, which amounts to about 1.7 million lives of babies and toddlers saved since the program began, said Harsha Thirumurthy, a health economist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the lead author.
