Saying “Trash” On Facebook Is Only Hate Speech In One Specific Way

Since the roll out of the newly written community standards rules that Facebook published after the public backlash over data harvesting and Zuckerberg’s congressional hearing, FB went out of their way to essentially redefine what “hate speech” is and how it should be determined on their platform. In their shiny new packaged CS rules they published, they wanted to make clear that they do not tolerate any type or form of harassment, hate speech, and/or abusive content, they even went into great detail on how any kind of insinuation of calling someone or dirt, trash, bacteria, or feces was strictly prohibited by FB’s rules. Basically what FB did was, instead of acknowledging what every reasonable person in America understands what hate speech actually is, FB decided “hey let’s make everything hate speech and just keep enforcing the rules so only white men are protected like we’ve always done and call it a fix?!”

Because here’s what FB actually means when they put in their CS written polices that using “trash” or synonyms thereof isn’t against community standards therefore hate speech:

So all these posts which were removed by FB and deemed “hate speech” all have 1 thing in common, they all “men” in them. However, when you make a post calling any one else who isn’t considered a “straight white man” trash then weirdly, FB seems to have a different response to what their own hate speech rules are.

Huh?? ain’t that funny how when it’s not a woman calling out sh*tty men on FB then suddenly FB couldn’t care less about calling others “trash” on their platform. What. a. mystery!

    I just got banned (for a second time) for saying “white trash.” Actually, this time I didn’t even say “white trash” I just said, “I like seeing white and trash together.” Apparently facebook thinks “white trash” is a “racial slur.” Um.. What?!

      That happened to me today. Here’s the post that got me jailed; Chad Baier No, no. Not Progressive leaders. There are none worth speaking of (AOC, Bernie, and Tulsi Gabbard notwithstanding) at the moment. No Chad. Republicans and corporate Democrats own this dumpster fire of a country. Homelessness and opioid use? Those are white trash problems caused and exacerbated by the very people they voted into office in the first place. Either Republicans who are taking money from so many different entities they don’t even know who their working for anymore or Democrats trying so hard to sound like Republicans they forgot they were Democrats ( See Claire McCaskill and Beto O’Rourke). Either way, its it’s your fucking mess. I’d ask you to clean it up, but you folks couldn’t find your own asses in a dark bathroom with both hands and a flashlight.

    I just got banned for using the phrase “white trash.” This place has turned into a total joke.

        Same thing happened to my husband. He asked me to post on his page letting people know about it. Guess they’ll ban me too. Like I give a crap!

    I just got a 7-day FB jail sentence for using the term “white trash” as well (referring to my neighbor who was just arrested on felony drug possession charges for selling out of his house) – and I’m as white as wonder bread. How about a warning or something instead?

    The reality is Facebook is trying to social re-engineer the world into a big happy kumbaya Utopian society out of the book Brave New World or even the “future” as depicted by the Sylvester Stallone movie Demolition Man. So much for inclusion and acceptance of alternative viewpoints. I grew up when All in the Family was on TV, Eddie Murphy was making ‘fag’ jokes with regularity and the maintenance guys at the factory had Playboy centerfolds hanging up on the wall in their shop. Fast-forward 20-30 years and it’s all about soy milk and tolerance.

    I got reported for saying white trash in a joking way, because technically I -am- white trash! I live in a damned trailer park, I’m poor, and I never got to go to college. I’m well-read, an author, and pretty savvy, but FFS, if we have other demographics calling one another slurs in a good-humored way, can’t I reclaim my white trash slur in the same manner?

    I got banned for referring myself as white trash thought it was a slip up so i screen shot it and posted it with my other account and got banned for that as well fb is getting dumber by the day

    I just got banned this morning for using the term “white trash”. Came as a surprise to me. I’ve used it before, and no problem.

    I did not get banned but my comment “typical white trash” was removed and l got a notification that it violates their community standards.

    I just got banned for saying White Trash White House. I was referring to trump tweet fighting with a porn star, lol.

    Like Facebook’s rules, this article is also a joke… I’m a white guy who got a memory pulled because I called MYSELF white trash. I live in a rural area, drive big ugly trucks, literally have half a car on blocks, a set of car tires as end tables in the living room, and tell people to look for the redneck white trash house when they visit for the first time 😂

    I just got banned for 10 days for saying “white trash” in response to the four white folks arrested for killing a lot of white folks in drug-related murders. I am white.

    I got banned for using white trash, but porn, animal abuse, and that suicidal pic are all ok.

    I was banned for 3 days for calling an article about Cindy Hyde-Smith’s racist history white trash. Umm, she is a horrible human. I have deactivated my account. Twitter is more fun anyway. FB has changed so much it’s catering to the senior citizen demographic only.

    Just got banned for saying white trash for 3 days. No warning. Meanwhile, there are groups called “white Trash…..” on Facebook. Great! Now I can’t communicate with FB friends and family over Xmas.

    I got banned for a week for posting a picture of a girl in my dads neighborhood stealing Christmas decorations off a porch and calling her white trash?? Then another neighbor posted that some jackass cut all the cords on their decorations and i told her to watch the name calling lol because i was kicked off for calling the thief white trash and they kicked me off again. Then when i was back on someone ask where i had been and told them and fb kicked me off again ??? So guess they are sighting with the white trash thief and not the poor victim of her crime ….

    I just got jailed for 3 days for calling an old neighbor “trash can stealing White Trash” – I didn’t name them at all but I am guessing that “White Trash” is now “hate speech”? I totally agree, a warning or something would be nice – perhaps we should all have English majors and Attorneys to review all of our future posts – paid for by Facebook of course.

    WTF is with Face Book lately? They let posters call each other c*&t and every other name but I called Trump supporters “white trash” and I got banned for HATE SPEECH!!!! Since when is the term white trash classified as hate speech? Have those idiots lost their bloody minds?!!! I think I may just delete the account, seeing as they are now so stupidly sensitive!

    I got banned for saying “white trash like to blame immigrants for their own problems”.

    There is definitely a search algorithm that goes through every post, private and public, and looks for those specific words.

    Wonder if they would ban you if you typed “I threw my white Nikes in the trash.”

    I got banned for three days for saying white trash because some old guy called me a moron for questioning trump’s Immigration policy! How Ridiculous!

    I was threatened with a suspension because I referred to a Jersey Shore cast member and her ex-husband as “white trash with money”. I was told that this is “hate speech”. Mind you, I am Caucasian myself. This is utterly ridiculous.

    Someone posted a picture of a cat looking at a dog. In that picture a dog is asleep and a cat is looking at that dog. The caption says: “When you think the argument is over but for her it is not.” This implied that a cat is female. So I asked if MEN ARE DOGS. Now I’m in jail.

    I typed two words. White. Trash. Just like that. Banned for a month. Not long ago, Conservatives were whining that Facebook was targeting them. I guess FB decided that they should target a different group. Make things look “fair.” So now, “white trash” is treated the same as every cuss word. Wow. From now on, I’ll type “Whyte Trasch.”

    Just for three days for saying white trash again. That’s all I said and boom.

    Now I’m gonna post pictures of white trash bags once my ban is over. 😈

    Amazing

    Just got a 30 day ban for calling a cop killer “white trash”. I’m white so I don’t see it as hate speech. But reading this page as proven me otherwise.

    I was banned for all of November for referencing “animals”, got another 30 day ban in December for calling a girl fat who called me a name first and now this.

    What a fucking joke. I deleted the app and yesterday I was wasting way to much time on FB anyways. These FB bans are really healthy for me.
