Why tech platforms don’t treat all terrorism the same

In the wake of the mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand, a civil rights group called Muslim Advocates has expressed concern that the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism and other technological anti-terrorism initiatives do not police white supremacist groups as closely as groups like ISIS, writes Nitasha Tiku for Wired. 

There are arguments that fighting terrorism by white supremacists is difficult because of a lack of domestic terrorism laws.  Tech companies say that identification of content related to known terrorist organizations such as ISIS and al Qaeda is easier than identifying content belonging to white supremacists.

Groups such as Muslim Advocates remain concerned at the imbalance.
