It is not uncommon for the media to perpetuate racist stereotypes with their choice of words and images in their reporting. This in turn can foster racial hatred over in the comments. BetterPost analyzes the relationship between social media coverage and hate online and supports media professionals in counteracting hate speech on social media.
The association explores social media posts from major media outlets and analyzes the comments for racist language or microaggressions.
BetterPost is a project from the Neue deutsche Medienmacher:innen (New German Media Professionals) within the framework of the Kompetenznetzwerk gegen Hass im Netz (Skills Network against Hate Online).
