It turns out that the algorithm that Instagram uses to flag videos as “sensitive or violent content” might be more racist than the KKK.

To the Instagram algorithm, a group of Middle Eastern men dancing together and having fun are nothing but potential suicide bombers. This was proven just this week when a video was posted on the platform of a group of men dancing and having fun to the Rasta Progrez’ feel good song “One Day”. The innocent and fun video was immediately flagged and labeled: “Sensitive Content. This video may contain graphic or violent content.” https://www.instagram.com/p/CC322SCA6dv/

Seeing the label, most people skipped the video but for those who clicked they were utterly amazed and what would have caused any algorithm to flag such a video as potentially violent, except that the men dancing were of the darker shade. Some users let their feelings known in the comments section of the video and even tagged @Instagram but got no response in a 24-hour timespan.
