Google ad keywords encourage racial discrimination? Amazon deletes reviews for Hillary's new book? You think America is a democratic freedom that doesn't stand up?
New media butler
Recently, the United States network mediaBuzzFeed
In.GoogleI stumbled upon Adwords when I set it up
Certain keywords involving racism would not even be banned
Even Google will automatically jump out of the recommendations
For example, enter "white people ruin."(White people ruined)
Search for targeted ads as keywords
Google will automatically suggest
“black people ruin neighborhoods”(Black people ruined the community)
For example, enter“Why do Jews ruin everything”
(Why did the Jews ruin everything)
Auto-jump out “the evil jew” (Evil Jew)
“jewish control of banks” (Jewish-controlled bank)
BuzzFeed as a media that looks hilarious
These racist keywords are really on the market
Status shows "Available"
Only the state of "Jews running the world" is"Search volume is very low"
They then contacted Google to address the issue
After leaving 17 imppressions in these keywords
Most were turned off
But there's still a "black man who destroyed everything" to survive
Unique, another advertising factory
It was also revealed by ProPublica
You can use settings to advertise to hateful Jewish users
Because there were about 2,300 people who showed they were right
“Jew hater” (Jewish haters)
“How to burn jews”(How to burn a Jew)
“History of 'why jews ruin the world.'”
(On the history of "Why The Jews Destroyed the World")
These topics are of interest
ProPublica was also discovered last year
Post housing-related ads on Facebook
Target groups can be selected according to race
And that's prohibited by federal law
If the problem with the above two is that the posts haven't been deleted.
So.AmazonToday it's too fast to delete.
It's Hillary's new book, What Happened.
Negative reviews on Amazon
After the book was on the shelves on Tuesday
The commentary area became a battleground between the red and blue parties
It smells like gunpowder from the US election
It received 1,500 comments On Wednesday morning
How long does it take to feed this? Did you finish reading so soon?
But there were 338 comments
Users who purchased this book on Amazon
I must have bought a book if I hadn't finished reading it
Amazon doesn't think it's possible to read such a thick book in a night
These comments are directed at the author himself, not at the content
What's more, it's a political battleground with commentary
Amazon has seen a lot, and it's been through a hundred wars
So Amazon deleted a lot of comments
It is said that there is a one-star review and five-star reviews
But it worked quickly, with the score rising from 3.2 to 4.9
An Amazon spokesman said the deletion mechanism was targeted
A short period of time, a large number of comments unrelated to the product itself
That's what we're familiar with.
Further state that the act of protecting the community is not political
Make America Great Again was also deleted last Christmas.
3,000 uncertifyed user reviews below the Christmas tree decorations
Amazon deleted the post, albeit for good reason
Or is it considered by many to be censorship in a sense
Previous Google Adwords behavior
It's also a lot of talk
We all agree that these hateful people shouldn't find it so easy to organize, advertise, and promote their views to others, but I still don't think we should censor them. White supremacists were initially banned from advertising, but are likely to eventually expand to prohibit peaceful anti-government rallies or political petitions against the provisions of a law
The algorithm takes into account various variations in input phrases, such as"Non-white people have some kind of negative behavior."。 If you think about how this algorithm works and estimate how many possible these negative phrases are, you probably know that the task that BuzzFeed throws out is almost impossible
The person who searches for these words is not necessarily a racist. Surely half of them just want to know what went wrong with the people who thought so... I've been searching Google for nine hours on why people hate Jews, but it doesn't make me an antisemitist...
The more I know, the more I despise (racists), and I don't think their views are persuasive, nor do those who can be persuaded.
In addition, I am curious, in addition to BuzzFeed, who will take the initiative to put these keywords?
So, what do the melon eaters think of these things?
