Facebook Helped Advertisers Reach “Jew Haters”, While Banning Queries for “Muslim Haters”

According to a new report published in ProPublica, uncovered that Facebook allowed advertisers to target 2,300 people who presented interest in the topic “Jew Hater”.

Apparently Facebook, which presents itself as a bastion of tolerance and ant-racism, is willing to turn a blind eye to racism when it involves profit for the company. In order to test if Facebook was indeed embracing targeting of racists on the platform, ProPublica spent $30 on three promoted posts to target groups with interest in the term “Jew Hater”. The posts were removed from the anti-Semitic categories, but only after they were reported by the same people that posted them.

Facebook appears to take a very blind approach to advertising, aiming to create plausible deniability. A week ago, Offended America reported that Facebook accepted more than $100K from Russian “Troll Farms” that were running political ads.

In response to Facebook’s enabling of advertisers to market to “Jew Haters”, a company spokesman Joe Osborne said:

“We have looked at the use of these audiences and campaigns and it’s not common or widespread”

ProPublica investigated whether Facebook enabled advertisers to target “Muslim Haters”, and found that they did not and had the term blocked in their advertising system.
