Facebook Takes the KKK's Baby Away
Last week, Facebook shut down the Ku Klux Klan-inspired group, which had attracted a following of 100 members, including students from each of the island's six secondary (high) schools. The headmaster of one school did tell The Telegraph that his staff had spoken with the students that had joined the group, and determined that they had done so to criticize the group's racist ideals.
|I use all three.||1151 (5.9%)|
|I'm not sure.||439 (2.2%)|
We applaud Facebook for sticking to its guns and upholding the terms of the site, but a quick search reveals a multitude of KKK-fueled groups. Although most contain a mere spattering of members, it seems there's more work to be done in the fight for Facebook tolerance. So, while the site continues its purge of ignorance, perhaps the unhappy blokes of the Isle of Man will join forces with unwelcome bigots on the Isle of Wight to form their own Isle of White Men. Good riddance. [From: The Telegraph and Mashable]
