Can anyone think of a non-conspiratorial reason for this?

I'm trying to think of a naughty word that might be a subset of "white man", like how "NIxxxxxxGGER" or "cunning stunt" might be censored because the filter detects that it's an attempt to circumvent, even though it may be a false positive.

"Hitman"? Doesn't seem very offensive in a shoot-em-up...

If that's your screenshot, can you check if things like "white woman" or "white bunny" are censored?

If they used AI to train the word filter these results wouldn't be surprising. It analyzes the sentiment of a word or phrase and censors anything below a certain threshold of negativity. One poster said that "60 fps" is censored.

the chat filter is trained AI

inputs "nigger" several thousand times just to see what happens
