The invasion of the Black Lesbians United's event page in the last 24 hours has led to some serious issues. Face bookers' having nothing to do with the organisation have taken it upon themselves to give their input in the form of racist, homophobic, sexist, and downright immoral posts, all being passed off as "friendly banter".

These posts however mock people's right to be who they are, sexual preference, and skin colour. The comments this event page is receiving are highly disrespectful, and can be viewed as a straight forward abuse directed not only to the LGTB community but to the every single individual reading them, for there is offensive material galore. The movement is distasteful, and abuses not only the open space Facebook claims to be, but also people's freedom of choice and speech.

Therefore some sort of action should be taken towards those who feel that they have a right to make hurtful comments such as these.

We recommend the deletion of their Facebook accounts but are open to other sanction suggestions. If you agree that this sort of behaviour has no place on Facebook or anywhere, please sign and tell the world that as citizens of the Internet we will not tolerate this blatant abuse of the BLU's page and any that might come along. 

Please share and show off the good side of social media. This is a world wide appeal against cyber-bullying.
