What Does Facebook Know About Your Politics?

The New York Times has an article explaining how you can find out what Facebook thinks about your politics. Facebook thinks I’m a liberal (which is correct sometimes; depends on the topic) but the funny part was it had me labeled with “Ethnic Affinity: African American”. There is nothing wrong with being a person of color, but the color I am is pasty pink. Or you could just call me a Saltine-American. (And maybe Facebook’s algorithmic discovery isn’t as good as it thinks.)
