Hey guys! Lately, I have noticed that quite a few of my Facebook friends have been receiving harsh penalties for relatively minor offenses (pictures of themselves in swimwear at the beach that were not revealing, reacting to racist comments, or speaking out in general about serious political issues) while white FB members can seemingly get away with use of the N word, calling people "faggots", and many other derogatory epithets and names.
Recently, documentary filmmaker and New York Times best selling author Tariq Nasheed experienced this backlash on his own page-twice in one day. Listen to the audio clip below for his account of what happened:
TARIQ NASHEED: RACISM DENIERS
What gives, Facebook? Have you hired moderators that are race soldiers of white supremacy? Odd that you would be so discriminatory given that your "founder" is a member of an ethno-religious group (Jewish)that tells its stories of hate against them all the time. I have personally reported many white supremacists and bigots of all strata, only to have FB say that "it doesn't violate our rules" to be so hateful against blacks and others.
Studies have shown that people of color use FB disproportionally more than their white counterparts. You would be wise to remember this Facebook, lest you find this charge spread all over social media and outlets around the world with just a click of a button. At that point, a "like" won't be enough.
