Facebook bans white nationalism, separatism on its platforms (299 hits)

Facebook is extending its ban on hate speech to prohibit the promotion and support of white nationalism and separatism.

The company previously allowed such material even though it has long banned white supremacists.

The social network said that it didn't apply the ban previously to expressions of white nationalism because it linked such expressions with broader concepts of nationalism and separatism - such as American pride or Basque separatism (which are still allowed).

But civil rights groups and academics called this view "misguided" and have long pressured the company to change its stance.

Facebook said it concluded after months of "conversations" with them that white nationalism and separatism could not be meaningfully separated from white supremacy and organised hate groups.

For some reason this rubs me the wrong way and I'm not even a Facebook user.

Maybe, at this point, you can't see what mode of communications that you and your boys will take now, to get the message out there.

That may well be the reason why it rubs YOU the wrong way, remember: "They will nor replace us!"

That's not at all the reason why Ron. I think that white nationalists and black nationalists are the same.

They are not the same by no means. Let us take at look a Black Nationalism.

Black nationalism, political and social movement prominent in the 1960s and early ’70s in the United States among some African Americans. The movement, which can be traced back to Marcus Garvey’s Universal Negro Improvement Association of the 1920s, sought to acquire economic power and to infuse among blacks a sense of community and group feeling. Many adherents to black nationalism assumed the eventual creation of a separate black nation by African Americans. As an alternative to being assimilated by the American nation, which is predominantly white, black nationalists sought to maintain and promote their separate identity as a people of black ancestry. With such slogans as “black power” and “black is beautiful,” they also sought to inculcate a sense of pride among blacks.

Now let us take a look at White Nationalism.

White nationalism is a political ideology which advocates a racial definition of national identity for white people; some white nationalists advocate a separate all-white nation state. White separatism and white supremacism are subgroups within white nationalism. The former seek a separate white nation state, while the latter add ideas from social Darwinism and National Socialism to their ideology. A few white nationalists organizations leaders made a claim that they are mostly separatists, and only a smaller number are supremacists. Both schools of thought generally avoid the term supremacy, saying it has negative connotations.

Anyone can look up someone else's definitions Ron. I consider Harry to be a black nationalist, and I'd hate to see him banned from Facebook.

I would put him in a category only in spirit but the watchers knows that he has No Followers, to hold a decent conversation with. Hell in the majority of his blogs, his hits don't even get out of the single digits.

Ron, is Facebook supporting free speech by banning white nationalists but not black nationalists? That's what this blog is about, whether Facebook got it right banning white nationalists. Did you know in New Zealand they made it a crime to possess Brenton Tarrant's manifesto?

I think that if New Zealand would just string up this Brenton Tarrant, they'd have a chance of banning white supremacy.
