Troy Posted March 23 Report Share Posted March 23 I wish American legislators were as aggressive with the misinformation propagated on American platforms. TikTok is a threat in terms of revenue, as Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube are all trying to mimic the platform. They are all manipulation engines designed to generate profit. Are we afraid that China will use the data against us to spread misinformation in the United States? Facebook has already allowed Russians to do this. AALBC in recent weeks has become a platform where misinformation is being propagated. Someone posted here that the average IQ on the African Continent is 70! I had half a mind to delete that false information but chose not to. I felt the person who made the post really believed what they were posting, as opposed to being a racist troll just trying to crap on these forums. It is a very thin line between those behaviors, and it is more art than science trying to discern the difference. Like most people, the person who posed that fake fact will not have their mind changed. My only hope is that someone who reads that nonsense will read the arguments against and learn something. @frankster has been invaluable in dispatching those racist arguments. To prevent the ideas from being expressed is to make believe they do not exist and limits one's perspective. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
