The Girl God and Feminsts Against Racism pages are silenced by Facebook along with #Goddess on Instagram because #WhitePeopleMustEndRacism #YesAllWhitePeople

Desiree Jordan posted an excellent the video where a young black woman was talking about white silence. She shared it with the header #yesallehitepeople & #whitepeoplemustendracism to the Feminists Against Racism page where Trista also admins. Trista cannot post, comment or like anything for 3 days. Desiree is blocked for 7 days.

There are other admins on both The Girl God page and the Feminists Against Racism page but neither woman can post, comment or like at this time without getting the following notice:
  • You recently posted something that violates Facebook policies, so you're temporarily blocked from using this feature. For more information, visit the Help Center.

    To keep from getting blocked again, please make sure you've read and understand Facebook's Community Standards.
    The block will be active for 2 days and 10 hours more.
  • If you think you're seeing this by mistake, please let us know.
Both women have let Facebook know that they believe this is a mistake.

Meanwhile, the hashtag #Goddess has been banned on Instagram.

A member of the Feminists Against Racism page posted the following comment, which has been true of Facebook for sometime:

"They block heart-centered things, yet a full on porn video just passed through my news feed & I couldn't get it banned...:( Thanks for keeping the posts going."

Max Dashu echoed this sentiment:
"And now Bairavee Balasubramaniam got flack for this beautiful post which was flagged as "violent." If FB is going to vet posts, they should hire some women who have some clue about what violence is about, and go after the female-despising porn instead of educational posts by and for women, or pictures of women in traditional dress whose nipples are showing."

Many thanks to all the Admins on The Girl God page who are keeping the page going!!
