Creating "sit down jobs at community centers for self-entitled minorities" (FB: not hate speech)

Not hate speech or symbols, according to the Facebook Help Team.

Background: there was (and is) a Facebook posting about adding more bus shelters and improving some of the ones we have, in Minneapolis:

Grant will fuel hundreds of bus shelter improvements

Buddy Ken writes: The whole system is nothing but an eye sore that has polluted my town, and ruined generational family businesses. Enjoy your new ghetto. I'm sure all the issues a ghetto is known to present will justify plenty of upcoming Democrat tax dollars for all sorts of social programs, and perpetuate plenty of sit down jobs at community centers for self entitled minorities in the near future.


(All emphasis in the above and throughout this posting is mine).

Anyway, I reported the comment. A couple days later I got this back:

Status: This comment wasn't removed

Activity: You reported Buddy Ken's comment for containing hate speech or symbols.

Facebook Help Team response:
Thank you for taking the time to report something that you feel may violate our Community Standards. Reports like yours are an important part of making Facebook a safe and welcoming environment. We reviewed the comment you reported for containing hate speech or symbols and found it doesn't violate our Community Standards.


I guess one has to get into lynching threats and burning crosses in order to go over the line on Facebook. Or maybe that still wouldn't be enough

1. I wonder if FB just does a search for specific words to tag it as hate speech rather

than analyzing context.

3. Im thoroughly disgusted with the way FB handles hate and threats of violence

If they won't remove a page because of threats of violence against a POTUS, there's no way they get their precious little hands dirty with racism. It's all free speech don't you know.

I think the only way to get their attention and get something done is to email bomb them.

Take this post for example, post information on the page, names and some screen captures and see how they enjoy a DU/FB member onslaught of complaints.

Not sure it would how well it would work but it's worth a try.

4. Yet they remove pages of LGBT because they don't use their birth names

5. I hope its something benign like that. I'm sure they get tens of thousands of

comments alerted on every day. (hundreds of thousands? millions?) And they also might have a system where they have to get a certain number of reports before looking at one seriously.

But they make it sound like someone (or someones, aka "we" actually looked at it

"We reviewed the comment you reported for containing hate speech or symbols and found it doesn't violate our Community Standards."

6. It would appear

that facebook has a different community standard than DU. What should we do?
