Why did Seattle ban caste-based discrimination?

  1. Summary
    In a 6-1 vote, Seattle's City Council made their city the first in the U.S. to outlaw discrimination based on South Asia's caste system. Although India officially abolished its 3,000-year-old caste system in the 1940s, its effects linger. It is most commonly linked to Indian Hinduism, but variations of it can be found across South and Southeast Asia, and in other religions.

    Councilmember Kshama Sawant, herself an Indian American of upper-caste descent, sponsored the resolution. Council Member Lisa Herbold argued that even though the population affected by the resolution is small, "that doesn’t make it any less important." Some critics expressed concern the move could increase discrimination against South Asians, such as by making employers afraid to hire South Asian workers.

    Although data on U.S. caste discrimination is limited, one 2016 survey found 2 out of 3 Dalits (those of the lowest caste) in the U.S. reported being treated unfairly in the workplace. The University of California system and Brown University have also banned caste discrimination.

Should tech companies face more legal liability for content generated by their users?

367 votes, 47 comments

Context: Supreme Court considers cases that will impact scope of Section 230.


Yes - The tech companies moderate their content as publishers do and should be responsible as publishers are. The fact that the moderation is done by automated processes should not excuse the tech companies from liability. The automated processes are controlled by the tech companies and should be expected to meet normal standards of moderation for the public good to avoid libel and misinformation. The targeting of content to particular users should raise the bar even higher as far as protecting the public good and causing no harm.

No - As was intimated by the Court, such a ruling might apply to any organization of Internet d...

Unsure - The responsibility for speech-related crimes (defamation, incitement, etc...) must be placed somewhere, either on the internet service provider, or on the user....
