    Default Zuckerberg Blasts Staff for Replacing Black Lives Matter with All Lives Matter"

    Mark Zuckerberg Blasts Facebook Staff for Replacing Black Lives Matter with All Lives Matter

    26 Feb 2016


    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg reprimanded employees for replacing Black Lives Matter slogans with All Lives Matter on the walls of the companys headquarters in San Francisco.

    In a private Facebook post obtained by Gizmodo, Zuckerburg told employees that their behaviour was malicious and disrespectful, and reminded them that there are specific issues affecting the black community in the United States.

    This has been a deeply hurtful and tiresome experience for the black community and really the entire Facebook community, and we are now investigating the current incidents, said Zuckerberg.

    Zuckerberg went on to encourage employees to take part in the Black@ town hall on the 4th of March to educate themselves about what the Black Lives Matter movement is all about.

    The Facebook CEO is not the only Silicon Valley bigwig to express his support for Black Lives Matter, a movement that has wreaked havoc on US campuses and cities. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is a well-known Black Lives Matter supporter who marched alongside protesters in Ferguson, Missouri and is acquainted with movement leader DeRay Mckesson.

    Zuckerbergs comments come as the company takes an increasingly tough approach to monitor and remove hate speech across the platforrm, working with Angela Merkel and the German government, who are particularly concerned with hate speech against migrants. It also comes as other silicon valley companies like Twitter and GitHub become increasingly reckless about displaying their political biases.

    All Lives Matter is a slogan that developed in response to Black Lives Matter. It has been defended by Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), Southern Carolinas first black senator since the reconstruction, as a more unifying slogan than the latter.

    If it causes offense that I say that all lives matter black lives, white lives, police officers, jurists, all of us, even politicians, all of our lives matter if that is somehow offensive to someone, thats their issue, not mine, Scott told CNN last September.

    If were saying that the country has a provocative history on race, I affirm that fact, he stated. But for under the circumstances, to find a way forward, it is truly together.

    Mark is rich and he needs to shut the fuck up. Why? 2 things. 1. He probably is trying to appear to be P.C. and care about this worthless moment, to show his, "sensitive" side. 2. The whole BLM is a 100%, racist movement, BAR NONE.

    Welcome back Wruff!
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    If Mark cares so much about how his staff sees the BLM movement, maybe he should up the ante and go ahead and give K.W. that 53 mill he was asking for. Because, that would, "Show Them", (FB staffers).

    Mark can go suck it.

    Shouldn't be called "black lives matter when it's politically convenient for them to matter"?

    I notice no one wants to talk about the overwhelming majority of young black men who die at the hands of other young black men. Instead they wait around for the rare death which just happens to line up with a preconceived bias and political agenda.
