The enforcement of political correctness can create confusing and quite comical situations. One such recent case was when YouTube, which uses various algorithms to block and censor so-called hate speech, blocked the channel of a Youtuber, commentator, and chess player, Antonio Radić.
The Croatian Youtuber, who comments and talks about chess on his channel “Agadamator” was a “victim” of YouTube´s algorithms when his channel was suspended because of constant repetition of words, such as “black”, “white” and “attack”. Antonio Radić was of course only commenting on a chess game of Hikaro Nakamura, not advocating for some kind of race war, but the algorithms blocked him because the mentioned words appear in 82% of the comments labeled as so-called “hate speech”.
As we know the chess figures are black and white. Later, Google lifted the suspension without any explanation or apology.
