Remove Racist Posts

    2. Petition by

      Breanna Robles

      Glendora, CA

While Facebook has provided us with many wonderful ways to keep in touch and express ourselves, it has also become a venue in which hatred, often in the form of racism, is spread.
An example of this was a picture posted on the Facebook page "Obama Sucks". It shows the President being lynched with the caption "Rope". Despite the fact that this picture was reported by several concerned Facebook users for "Graphic Violence" and "Hate Speech", Facebook has refused to remove the photo.
If you believe that Facebook should enforce its Community Standards more strongly, and should take down all such racist and violent posts, please sign this petition.

      Hello! First of all, thank you for signing this petition and fighting against hate! At last, Facebook has removed the picture of President Obama being lynched. While we have won this battle, I am still keeping this petition going because there are still many hateful posts and pictures to be found on Facebook. Keep up the good fight!

      Thank you,
      Breanna
