Yesterday OHPI was interviews by the National Indigenous Radio Service on the issue of Aboriginal Memes.
The news grab, which was also posted online, ran:
The Online Hate Prevention Institute says there are flaws in Facebook’s processes in removing racist content posted to the social media site.
The comments come after a page was taken down vilifying Indigenous Australians, with references to poverty and the Stolen Generations.
An initial complaint saw the company declare the content acceptable under it’s ‘community standards’ policy, but media pressure saw it quickly reverse its decision.
Dr. Andre Oboler from the Online Hate Prevention Institute says Facebook is sending the wrong message if it doesn’t immediately take down racist content.
