Chats for Change | Social Media: A Tool for Racism and Anti-Racism
In recent years, popular social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter have been increasingly criticized for their role in enabling and amplifying old and new forms of racial abuse, hate speech, ideological extremism, white supremacy, and discrimination.
