I recently came across an incredibly ignorant and racist comment on Facebook, regarding the Micheal Brown tragedy. I was deeply offended by the choice of words this individual used and felt other would be offended as well, so i decided to report it to Facebook, saying it was offensive and hate speech towards race. Facebook is supposed to protect it users and delete content that violates their standards. So what do I receive back? A response from Facebook saying this content wasn’t offensive enough….
So referring to African Americans as “MONKEYS” and “TRIBAL” as well as calling Mike Brown “Mr Thug” are just not offensive enough? So, Mr Zuckerberg, what is your website’s qualifications for content being offensive enough? While people have a right to opinions, that right only goes so far until it becomes hateful….This Facebook status I came across is obvious hate speech and blatant racism. This kind of content is all too common lately, and I would like for you to re evaluate how you judge offensive content. Because this right here is an outrage.
put this on blast for real. Facebook REALLY should be paying more attention to the blatant racism people are saying. If something gets reported, there’s probably a reason…
I really should just escape from that shit hole of a website,
