Some U.S. tech companies expressed disappointment with a ruling by a federal judge that blocked new applications to a program that protects immigrants who were brought to the United States as children from deportation.
Racism, yet again, Racism should have no platform in the UK, but it does and here the blame is not only on the racists, but the Platform providers Facebook, Twitter, etc, who by their apparent refusal to take these abusive down as soon as they appear, are, effectively as guilty as the racists who post these comments.
Not only should the racists be prosecuted, but also the platform providers, for only then will this racism end.
There has to be ‘ZERO tolerism‘ with regards to racism.
No form of abuse is acceptable no matter what circumstances are involved.
With Social Media they do have the resources to eliminate the abuse though their platforms, but they appear unwilling to do so.
The legislation promised in the Queen’s Speech could well alleviate that to some or all extent. However, these platforms are owned my multi-billionaires and so their resources to fight or reduce the effects of any such legislation are enormous, but that should not stop the legislation coming into force and if it needs to be amended to make it more enforceable then so be it.
Black footballers could come off Social Media but why should they, why is it the innocent who have to act, rather than the perpetrators being punished, it is because it is easier for this to occur, but it is a major limitation of freedoms. Just because something is difficult should not be an excuse to not proceed, as by not proceeding this is as bad as the initial racial abuse and is in effect condoning but inaction or insufficient action. If the was put into every legislation, that inaction or insufficient action was illegal then more would be done by all concerned.
