Mark Zuckerbergs’s Facebook Now Block White Nationalist And White Separatist Posts

Recently white nationalism becomes a matter of concern in the U.S but Facebook has other preventative measures to handle the situation.

Facebook is banning explicit praise, support or representation of white nationalism and white separatism on Facebook and Instagram, including phrases such as “I am a proud white nationalist, ” following deadly attacks at two New Zealand mosques and a backlash from black history scholars and civil rights groups.

The social media giant confirmed this in a blog post on Wednesday that conversations with academics and civil rights groups convinced the company to expand its policies around hate groups.

White nationalism got back into the spotlight after a gunman opened fire at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, killing 50 people. In a 74-page manifesto, he described himself as an “ordinary white man” whose goal was to “crush immigration and deport those invaders already living on our soil. So it created a spark amongst the white people and they decided to launch the campaign both offline and on especially on social media platforms.

This step has mixed reactions as Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, said Facebook’s new policy is a “step forward in the fight against white supremacist movements, ” But, she said, much work remains to be done.

“Putting in place the correct policy is a start, but Facebook also needs to enforce those policies consistently, provide meaningful transparency around any AI techniques used to address this problem, and adequately retrain its personnel. Without proper implementation, policies will prove to be just empty words, and white supremacy will continue to proliferate across its platform, ” she added.

Whereas citizens are criticizing this decision and want Facebook to revert this decision immediately.
