This paper addresses the important problem of discerning hateful content in social media. It proposes a detection scheme that is an ensemble of Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) classifiers, and it incorporates various features associated with user-related information, such as the users’ tendency towards racism or sexism. These data are fed as input to the above classifiers along with the word frequency vectors derived from the textual content. The scheme can successfully distinguish racist and sexist messages from normal text, and achieve higher classification quality than current state-of-the-art algorithms.
