Nextdoor App to Alert Users If it Thinks They Are Going to Be Racist

Nextdoor, an app that connects neighbours with each other, has introduced a new “anti-racism” notification system that alerts users if they may be about to use offensive or bigoted language.

The company announced the new feature in a blog post, they explained further:

“All Lives Matter and Blue Lives Matter content is explicitly prohibited on Nextdoor when used to undermine racial equality or the Black Lives Matter movement. Support for White Lives Matter is prohibited on Nextdoor, as it is most commonly associated with white supremacist groups.”

In a video demonstration for the feature, someone responds to a message about Black Lives Matter by asking, “Why just black lives? I believe all lives matter.”
