Facebook Don't Disallow Boosting for Political Art/Music Ads

I was not allowed to boost a post through facebook for my upcoming song "Say Their Names" because either it or the related Artwork "was something that might affect how people voted in an election."  The post had artwork related to Trump and had the phrase "Say Their Names" in it. Is facebook afraid of political cartoons...or are they afraid of the Black Lives Matter movement? This is infringement on my first amendment rights! Facebook should allow post boosting for any and all music or Artwork provided that it does not include hate speech. 

Artists have always been political. What about Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come." Just think of Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land" and Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A Changing." What if Bob Dylan wasn't allowed to promote that song "because it might affect how someone voted in an election" What about Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA." Due to their themes, all of these songs could be said to affect how someone voted in an election. 

Art and music are not the same thing as political ads. They are first amendment protected free speech expression! Free expression in Art and Music is Quintessential to our democracy!
