There has recently been a lot of talk within the Black community about Facebook and its apparent bias towards Black issues. Because of this, many people in the Black community are looking for alternative social media platforms to use. There are numerous complaints of accounts being suspended for days, weeks, and sometimes even months, for simply mentioning topics regarding racism, unfair treatment of Blacks or even some Black history topics.
In a couple of recently released videos, Dr. Boyce Watkins says he and many of the people connected to him are experiencing this first hand. He calls it the Facebook “Purge” and he believes Facebook is actively targeting accounts that frequently speak about racism, Black history, and other issues that are affecting the Black community.
