Farrah Marriott started this petition to Facebook

Facebook banned me for 30 days after I called a racist a racist. Facebook regularly enables the posts, comments and thoughts of nazis, white supremacists and racists, while silencing those who speak up against these divisive and offensive remarks. 

I've been banned before for defending myself against hate speech that includes people calling me the n-word, while Facebook allows "certain" types of people to post pictures of Black people being lynched, posts calling for the death of Black people, and comments cheering on victims of police brutality.

I actually have proof in my account of the fact that racist and posts enabling white supremacy don't go against Facebook's community standards, while people defending themselves against these attacks are somehow violating the rules.

Facebook also claims that humans are reviewing these posts, but I believe it's an algorithm that's been programmed to be biased against things people of color may say. There's a reason that the word "white" is deemed racist, but the word "n*gger" is not. 

As a Black female veteran, I'm used to being marginalized, but I'm hoping that Facebook doesn't continue to silence other members of marginalized groups. All I want is for Facebook to actually adhere to the community standards they claim to follow.

Every person needs to be subject to the same rules, not just the rules that Facebook and other white supremacists seem to follow. Please sign my petition, and stop Facebook's racist agenda of targeting people of color and other marginalized groups while enabling white supremacists.
