Facebook: Please stop promoting racism and hate speech!

    1. Petition by

      Anna Brady

      Hanalei, HI

Facebook is refusing to take down racist pages. Many have reported the "Let's Put A White Man In The White House" page and were told they will not take the page down! Here's the page's description: "Electing Obama to office was a huge mistake. Even though he is only a half breed it was his black side running our country and spending out of control."

http://www.facebook.com/LetsPutAWhiteManBackInTheWhiteHouse

Here is the text from Facebook's own "Community Standards" page:
"Facebook does not permit hate speech. While we encourage you to challenge ideas, institutions, events, and practices, it is a serious violation to attack a person based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability or medical condition."

The "Let's Put A White Man Back In The White House" page is full of hate speech and racial slurs and is glaringly in violation of Facebook rules. The title itself is offensive and the content even more so. Why is Facebook bending their own rules to accomodate this page and others like it? They're allowing and actively promoting racism and white supremacy by refusing to remove offending racist pages.

Please show Facebook we won't tolerate racism by signing this petition.

      I have been called nigger several times while trying to defend myself after a racist photo was posted by "No More Swaggots" it was a picture of "travon Martins funeral" but instead of mourners there were gorillas at a fence and a dead gorilla in a wheelbarrow.
