So let me get this straight. Donald trump and others can go on twitter rant all kinds of foul crap but I get suspended for calling Kanye West a "coon." Alright Jack, we see how you roll. 

Anywhoo, I need your caption for the following pic.

Well of course they banned you the double standard mofos.

You're banned for 12 hours? I'll protest by staying off Twitter for the next 12 days, NO PROBLEM! Deleted from phone AND iPad!

“Coon” is one of those terms whose meaning is determined by context.

When black people use it, it typically has the meaning of “black person who collaborates with racists, either for personal gain or out of self-hatred.” When non-black people use it, it’s typically intended as an all-purpose anti-black racial slur, roughly equivalent to the n-word (and this is a pretty archaic usage, actually; racists today are more likely to choose different words to express their hate).

I’d be curious to know:

First, whether Twitter understood the context in which you used it, and which definition applied to that context. Did a real person make that call, or were you automatically punished by some software algorithm that couldn’t care less about what you meant and just suspends anyone who uses the word?

Second, if Twitter did understand your meaning, does that mean both senses of the word are violations of their terms of services?

Twitter has an abysmal record for policing abuse and hate speech on their platform. To the extent they police it at all, they do so in a useless, mindless, robotic way.

It’s common to run into a situation in which an online Nazi taunts someone else on Twitter, calling for that individual’s ethnic group to get wiped out in a genocide, but does not get suspended — presumably because he refrained from using racial slurs or profanity while expressing his vile opinions.

The person who got taunted then tells the Nazi to fuck off, and gets suspended for saying “fuck.”

They banned you because you have the word "Negro" in your username.

It's for your own good.

This is the world you have advocated for.

Field, why haven't you warned folks that Jamaican rum cake has a whole lotta' rum???

dinthebeast said...

So did you get the same cell in Twitter jail as Driftglass and the Rude Pundit?
It's probably an algorithm in need of tuning, but perhaps after supposedly permanently banning Alex Jones they thought they should sweep up some sane users to prove they're not biased?
Probably not, though.

Jamaican rum cake is the bomb, and I don't even like rum.

Just watched a man in military-style half-thigh shorts fly in rage and take apart a convenience store because of a disagreement over some cookies while yelling "I am the resistance!" Drumpf leads to destruction of our social fabric every day.

Flying Junior said...

I'm not familiar with Twitter. But I can guess that since Trump is probably the biggest breadwinner for the Tweet, his little buddy Kanye West must be a protected personality.

Betsy DeVos FIL kicked the bucket. Thanks to recent taxcuts for the wealthy, DeVos and her hubby stand to collect billions tax free. They redid the estate tax just in time to help out destitute billionaires like DeVos.

So Field, went on Twitter. Mentioned censorship and Trump's free Nasty-pass. Added an image of Chris Rock looking shocked. No foul language. They blocked MY account. It's getting scary man.

No kidding. If our clown president wants to increase American manufacturing, he is going to have to come up with smart policies to encourage that, rather than blindly slapping import tariffs on everything and lobbing insults at companies on Twitter.

You people are so out of touch.

Twitter is run by liberals/anti-whites who heavily censor posts that deviate from their approved narratives.

To this end they have developed algorithms to help them sift through the billions of Tweets to find who they must silence.

The combination of your user name "Field Negro" and the use of the word "coon" probably flagged your Tweet, and the foreign-born Indian they hired to review it could not discern the context, so off you go. Once they realize you are black, they'll stop hassling you.

This control of the narrative is what you wanted, right?

Whatever our government should be called--oligarchy, kleptocracy, kakistocracy, corporatocracy, or something else--the Left owns it

The last time the Republican presidential candidate received more campaign money than Democrat candidate was in 2004, when Bush brought in about 10% more than Kerry. In 2016, Hillary raised nearly twice as much as Donald Trump.

Democrats now have 2:1 advantage in influence money. The Left is the Power.

The bitches are the ones who have to silence their opponents to win an argument.

It's the truth you fear.

mike from iowa said...

How many hearings did wingnuts have on women's issues where they refused to let a single woman testify? Talk about silencing opponents. How about telling Warren to shut the fuck up in the Senate?

We don't fear truth because you can't speak truth.

What a set of brass cojones on Steve Bannon. Now he is comparing Donald “shithole countries” Trump to Abraham Lincoln, the president who ran for office on the issue of ending slavery and then fought the war that made it happen.

Trump would probably be happy to reinstate slavery — and put the slaves to work erecting his crappy condos and golf courses. I mean, we already know he has a nasty habit of not paying his workers, so ...

Coming from someone who refuses to acknowledge either black IQ deficits or black criminality, this is rich.  The dispute is going kinetic because you respect neither truth nor votes.

> Your side don’t have an “argument.” You have lies and abuse.

When you define e.g. government criminal statistics as "lies and abuse", you have taken leave of reality.  That should cost you the vote and land you in mental health treatment.

Anymoose spends his life and speaks from alternative facts universe. If he knew anything for real he'd be dangerous.

Stoopid fucking wingnuts are now admitting how dangerous Drumpf's mental instability is. Yeah, well HRC had emails. And Obama was black. That is more than enough proof for racists and sexists which defines today
s stoopid fucking wingnuts.

Actually, it's the open borders folks who want an unlimited supply of cheap labor who have reinstated a system of slavery-lite.

Trump's policies have resulted in the first real wage growth in 15 years.

mike from iowa said...

Astually korporate farms need the steady working, lower waged workers that come and go. America needs these workers to pay taxes on benefits they will never collect. The wealthy will still be wealthy and would have more taxcuts with these guest workers shaming lazy wingnut workers.

the world makes a lot more sense once you realize that the entire purpose of Journalism is to destroy people's lives

that's what Journalists do, they destroy people's lives - mostly the lives of the enemies of the billionaires who are paying their salaries

that's why they exist

Deb, this is all because the whiny folks on the right (see some comments above) cry about not being treated equally on SM. What a joke.

Which admits that there is a substantial and socially significant black IQ deficit IN THE FIRST PARAGRAPH.  Further, it goes on to talk about IQ increases (the Flynn effect) over time... without noting that this did NOT substantially change the black-white gap.

(The Flynn effect is strange, because it goes opposite to the slowing of reaction times over the same period.  Reaction times are a measure of neural processing speed; people with higher IQ have faster reactions too.  Blacks react slower but then move faster than whites.)

The article goes on:

"The math gap has also narrowed, though not as much."

Math is the most g-loaded subject.  It can still be taught badly to cripple the more-able, and the "Common Core" methods are a study in maliciously bad teaching.

"Third, when black or mixed-race children are raised in white rather than black homes,"

This probably refers to the Minnesota Transracial Adoption Study, which found that the adult IQ of adoptees tracked their genetic parents and had no measureable effect from their adoptive families.  There was a 20-point IQ difference between biological children and African-American adopted children at age 17.  (Study after study finds no measureable effect from what's called "shared environment", while the intelligence of identical twins raised apart correlates to an extremely high degree.)

"their pre-adolescent test scores rise dramatically."

Which is useless, because pre-adolescents can't hold jobs or do much of anything.  What matters is what they're like in their working/criminal years.

"These adoptees’ scores seem to fall in adolescence, but this could easily be because their social and cultural environment comes to resemble that of other black teenagers."

How could their social and cultural environment change so much, unless THEY selected it?  More likely adolescence ends their brief period of plasticity and erects the ceiling of their genetically-capped capability.

But back to you.

"Start here to become educated on this topic."

You old fool, I've read the MTAS report and a dozen others.  You refer to a left-wing think tank which doesn't even link to its sources.  You have no business lecturing anyone about anything.

Given that
(a) you claim to be familiar with "most of the research on the topic", and
(b) you STILL have no clue about the strong heritability of most mental traits, including but by no means limited to IQ,

it follows that you have no use for reason when it conflicts with your dogma.  This is a typically feminine trait; conclusion first, rationalize to it from what selected facts may be available.  Mentioning contrary facts = "hate".
