Facebook Allows Hate Groups

I found a Facebook hate group which was created specifically to target my sister, a teacher. Facebook refuses to take the page down. That horrifies and angers me.

Under the "Safety" section of the Facebook terms and conditions, #6 reads "You will not post content that is hateful, threatening, pornographic, or that contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence." The group is a clear violation Facebook's own terms and conditions.

I don't think I want to participate in a network that would not only allow a hate group targeting a specific teacher to stay live but would disable everyone from taking it down.

So tonight I am going to close my FB accounts. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up. Instead, you can find Haiku Ewe on Twitter and on the blog:
