Bots against racism.

/Bots against racism.

Researcher Kevin Munger programmed a bunch of Twitter bots to automatically censure people for using racist language. The results are pretty much what you’d expect, i.e. that white-coded bots with larger followings caused a greater decrease in targets’ use of racist language than black-coded bots, while black-coded bots with few followers actually caused increases in target racism.

Tl;dr, white people, speak up.
