七年前,在George Zimmerman开枪杀害Trayvon Martin 被判无罪之后,三名年轻妇女走到了一起,对在美国造成了许多非裔美国人死亡的,系统化的种族主义做出了积极的反应。她们要传达的信息仅仅是“黑人也有生存的权利”。

她们在美国不仅支持了一些活跃分子,并另外创立了一些民权运动。

“黑人也有生存的权利” 的呼声从社交媒体上开始传出,该运动强调社交媒体在召集观众方面的优势,但我们还应该关注它同样可以用于散布负面和仇恨的意识形态。

在这一点上,社交媒体在世界各地都扮演着这样一个受争议的角色,它为人们提供可以联系的平台,同时也是人们可以放大他们的故事和声音的地方。人们同样也可以扩大仇恨和偏执。因此,这变得很复杂,因为我们相信言论自由的权利。

社交媒体和社交媒体的管理者应该以一种更好的方式来思考,如何防止人们发表刻意的仇恨言论和明显试图使人们受到伤害的煽动仇恨的声音。

Seven years ago, following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, three young women came together to form an active response to the systematic racism causing the deaths of so many African-Americans in the USA. Their message was simply Black Lives Matter.

They co-founded several other activist and civil rights movements in the US.

Black Lives Matter started on social media, whilst the movement emphasises the good that social media can do, when it comes to convening audiences, we should also be concerned by the way it can be similarly used to harness negative and hateful ideologies.

Social media plays an interesting role across the world at this point, as a place where people can connect, and a place where people can amplify their stories and voices. But people can also amplify their hate and their bigotry. It therefore becomes complicated because we as people believe in the right to free speech.

Social media and the people who are the administrators of social media should have to think about, in a better way, how to not give voice and amplification to hate that is purposeful, and that is about trying to get people harmed - and you can see that very clearly in people.
