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?!

    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 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.

    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 😂
