I found an anti-Semitic post on Facebook that ‘explained’ that ‘the’ Jews are now teaming up against Poland. After sucking Germany dry (in Holocaust compensations), they now eye the Poles as their next cash cow.
This propagates that Jews are thieves who always work together, the Germans were their victims and the Poles will follow soon. If that is not anti-Semitism, then what is?
So, I reported it to Facebook. You must press all kinds of buttons but in the end, I have signaled hate speech against an ethnic group. (It was not possible to check it as hatred both against a religious and an ethnic group. Since antisemitism looks more like racism than anti-Catholic vitriol, I checked the former.)
Within a day (fast), I got a message that the comment was reviewed and thank you for notifying us. This keeps Facebook clean.
I responded that I was disappointed, that I expected that this person would lose his Facebook, at least for some time. I was well aware that nothing so simple would help the person to change his mind but at least, Facebook would not show willingness to spread hatred.
A day later, I received this review report:
Thank you for requesting a review.
A specialist from our team reviewed the comment again and confirmed that it doesn’t go against any of our Community Standards, including hate speech.
We base our policies our [sic] Community Standards on input from the people who use Facebook around the world, as well as experts.
Can someone please tell Facebook that spreading negative stereotypes about oppressed groups (women are stupid, gays are sick, Jews are out to get your money and world domination, non-Whites are inferior) is hate speech?
