Facebook Permanently Blacklisted Me From Their Site
My name is Aysha Bee, and I’m a 21 year old Black woman, Social Critic, and Motivational Speaker for people of Black Marginalized Genders.
Facebook has allowed racists, misogynists, and just flat out abusive people to harass me and report my Facebook page enough to the point that Facebook will no longer allow me to create an account on the website.
Facebook disables any account that I attempt to make on the site. They ignore all of my appeal letters. They won’t even tell me what the issue is.
I believe that they may have me blacklisted by using my name, my IP address, and my cookies to keep me from being a user. As I have tried several methods to gain access back to the website with no success.
It’s discriminatory because I should be entitled to my freedom of speech on their website no matter who I offend with my truth.
My experience as a Black woman matters.
My feelings are valid.
My passion is genuine.
My voice and the voices of other Black women who speak about misogynoir and other issues are worthy of being heard and amplified.
Facebook still hosts space for some of the most violent people I have ever had the displeasure of seeing, but yet they had no problem with permanently banning me from the website.
It is unfortunate because I built some amazing bonds on Facebook, as well as I was happy to provide a space for people of Black Marginalized Genders.
There are not many spaces that center people of Black Marginalized Genders 100 percent of the time with no exceptions, and I was serious about keeping that scene a reality.
Now I am forced to move on from the connections that I made on Facebook.
I just hope that this will not go unnoticed.
