Tell Facebook Hate Groups Are Not Acceptable

It is not acceptable for social networking sites such as Facebook and others to allow hate groups which clearly promote violance towards race, religion, sexual orientation, gender etc and yet Facebook continues to be inundated with Hate Groups on a variety of topics some of which are promoting the death of a certain group of people.

Facebook Terms of Service: You will not post content that: is hateful, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence.

And yet reporting these groups most times does nothing the groups are allowed to remain when they are in clear violation of the Terms of Service. Groups that are reported take days to be removed if they are removed at all.

Call To Action

We are asking Facebook to implement a policy by which if a group receives a set number of reports that it is clearly a hate group such groups should be suspended until Facebook can review the groups content. By allowing these sites to remain for days after a report has been made only fosters the spread of such hate and violance.
