Is this really anything new? The majority of sites have rules in their TOS against the usage of hate speech. Crunchyroll for instance:


Upload, post, submit or otherwise transmit any User Submissions or Translated Content that are unlawful, obscene, harmful, threatening, harassing, defamatory or hateful or that contains objects or symbols of hate, invades the privacy of any third party, contains any pornography, erotica, child pornography or child erotica, is deceptive, threatening, abusive, inciting of unlawful action, defamatory, libelous, vulgar or violent or constitutes hate speech or is otherwise objectionable in the opinion of Crunchyroll;


The only new thing sounds to be these sites are trying to promise to get to reported content within a 24 hour period.

By their reasoning, it is not hate speech, because they believe it impossible to be discriminatory, racist, sexist, etc to people who are in the majority. That's why, because I am a white, Christian male who identifies with his birth gender, it is impossible for me to experience these things.
Who said white is the majority and mostly where?
Also such cencoring is just silly.
Even though making the internet a bit less trolly could be great but again you would be left with the biggest troll of them all.

Sure hate speech is nothing new or threats and such, but there is a limit and to what and how its dealt with.

Pretty much anyone using the argument I stated. And it really is something people think.

But, I agree, white people are often not the majority.... not in their neighborhoods, towns, counties, etc. But, that's not important.
