The Wall Street Journal posted an article that explained Hate Crime Hoaxes are more common that one thinks (only about 33% of claims were real). I wasn't surprised as I documented dozens @FakeHate, and real hate crimes that are not tracked/recorded because they happened against conservatives @RealHate. There's also a well know site tracking them ( http://www.fakehatecrimes.org/ ). But the average person might not know of those. Facebook blocked the article (and theFakeHateCrimes site) as being against Facebooks community standards, which doesn't allow for truths that the left doesn't want to hear. It may or may not be caught as "a mistake", meaning their censorious algorithm trying to eliminate anti-PC thought, is a wee bit too aggressive. But that's like saying that a little oppression is OK.

None of this is to diminish that there still is real hate in America. But it is rare, and often directed at the right, while here's a few dozen (hundreds) of examples of Faked hate for political gain. Fake Hate still feels like hate. The reason FakeHate happens is partly to incite violence and convince others on the left that anything they do back, is justified, because "they did it first" (even when they didn't). In order to instigate change ("progress") you have to convince people that things are so bad, that they need violence, revolution or change, so the left has always been more willing to go there. And the media has been willing to suppress the side of stories they don't like. The WSJ published a study that fully 66% (2/3rds) of "Hate Crimes" turn out to be faked, and only 1/3rd are real. That surge in hate crimes after Trump's election was more by the left than the right. If anything in here is News to you, then the News hasn't been doing its job.
Facebook is 3 things: bad interface, bad management, and biased policies. I want a social network that gives me control of what I see and share -- both to my friends and to advertisers. I realize they need to make a buck, and my information is their product, but the point is you can still give users the illusions of control. But Zuckerberg seems to have falling into the egocentric pit that many young billionaires do, they think because they timed things well, and worked hard, and got lucky that they're smarter than everyone else. This makes them arrogant, less mature, and slower to grow than the average human: Dunning-Kruger, inflated by being surrounded by yes-men.
