After receiving my second Facebook ban in the span of 7 days, I’m not feeling too fond of Facebook. Although before becoming a prisoner of Facebook jail, I’d seen the same thing happen to dozens of other black women and nonmen, I’d somehow continued skating by.
Today, I got a 3 Day ban for “violating community rules” when I said that black men are trash as hell, but they are fine as FUCK.
Now, that may sound mean to some (not that I care), but let’s speak on how Facebook selectively chooses to silence black women and nonmen while allowing Klan members, ashy negro-teps, and niggas 13 months behind on child support payments to talk shit about black women, call black people niggers, and threaten to harm black people for standing up for their supposed rights.
Due to the heavy social pressure from the Black Lives Matter protests, many brands and businesses have been putting their best foot forward in a whole host of extremely performative and mostly pointless actions in an attempt to prove that they are indeed woke and down for the cause of supporting black people’s right to exist and be black in safety and comfort. One of those actions has been by stopping or limiting Facebook ad spending until Facebook “gets it together” and cracks down on President Trump’s supporters and their not-so-Klandestine free reign to be racists all over Facebook.
Now, that’s cute and all that and gives me a jolly good laugh because Facebook is finally getting a temporary monetary punishment after all these years of allowing racists to gallop freely all over its platform, but Facebook’s claim to crackdown on hate speech seems to still (very conveniently) only be effecting black mages.
Facebook, I’m sure it would be much easier to just add a byline to your header that says, “Facebook hates black women and nonmen.” That would drastically reduce the amount of labor of constantly silencing any black mage who does not follow your racist and misogynistic community bylines.
Until the next ban, I’ll be floating around the internet still witnessing white people’s inherent right to be racist wherever they want.
Fuck you, Facebook.
