There is a technology that was created by some universities to identify "hate speech" online through the use of artificial intelligence.

A recent study from Cornell University shows that those who are the biggest offenders are those in minorities, not white people as liberals would lead you to believe.
A new study out of Cornell reveals that the machine learning practices behind AI, which are designed to flag offensive online content, may actually "discriminate against the groups who are often the targets of the abuse we are trying to detect," according to the study abstract.

    A big example is the N word. It is used by a certain group to show they are not afraid of it, and not as "hate speech".

    Analysis would show that when used by others it is not "hate speech", maybe derogatory and biased, maybe humor.
    The real problem is -not the use of computer to sift thru and look for phony examples- but the exercise of power to stop words.
