We have been crossing out the phrase “black lives matter” and writing “all lives matter” on Facebook

Facebook has invested heavily the past few years in efforts to hire a more diverse workforce. But those efforts don’t guarantee a socially accepting workplace.

Facebook has been known for tolerating users to post bigoted messages without consequence. And this just about the only right policy

Facebook has invested heavily the past few years in efforts to hire a more diverse workforce. But those efforts don’t guarantee a socially accepting workplace.
Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg issued a companywide memo Thursday chastising employees who, despite his earlier warnings, have been crossing out the phrase “black lives matter” and writing “all lives matter” on Facebook’s free expression walls at its Menlo Park, Calif. campus.
“There have been several recent instances of people crossing out ‘black lives matter’ and writing ‘all lives matter’ on the walls at MPK,” Zuckerberg wrote on an internal company website.
“Despite my clear communication at Q&A last week that this was unacceptable, and messages from several other leaders from across the company, this has happened again,” he continued. “I was already very disappointed by this disrespectful behavior before, but after my communication I now consider this malicious as well.”
We all are very aware that “all lives matter” but it is the numerous cases where Black people’s civil liberties are violated that is the focus of the movement.

Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg issued a companywide memo Thursday chastising employees who, despite his earlier warnings, have been crossing out the phrase “black lives matter” and writing “all lives matter” on Facebook’s free expression walls at its Menlo Park, Calif. campus.

“There have been several recent instances of people crossing out ‘black lives matter’ and writing ‘all lives matter’ on the walls at MPK,” Zuckerberg wrote on an internal company website.

“Despite my clear communication at Q&A last week that this was unacceptable, and messages from several other leaders from across the company, this has happened again,” he continued. “I was already very disappointed by this disrespectful behavior before, but after my communication I now consider this malicious as well.”

We all are very aware that “all lives matter” but it is the numerous cases where Black people’s civil liberties are violated that is the focus of the movement.

The movement was birthed after the death of Ferguson, Missouri teenager Michael Brown by former cop Darren Wilson. The lack of cop convictions spawned BLM into a national movement focused on abolishing police brutality and other forms of institutional racism within the justice system.
