Two days ago we shared this blog about a social justice warrior who dressed up as a thief for culture day at his high school because according to him, “white people steal black culture”:

It was in the news previously so we blogged about. Our take was pretty simple – cultures borrow and adapt other people’s cultures if they are good. That’s not stealing. It’s just people enjoying good things. Basketball was invented by a white guy, but that doesn’t mean black people are stealing it if they play in the NBA. Black people invented rock n’ roll, but that doesn’t mean white people are stealing it if they play it.

Seems like a perfectly reasonable take on a current event? Wrong. According to Facebook this is offensive and violates their terms and conditions, which is why they not only removed our post about it:

14492465_1102741069774688_4659529541077065759_n

14484890_1102741086441353_4013679917769748385_n

But they also suspended our Facebook page for 30 days for posting it:

14485067_1102741083108020_2054973098670725793_n

Notice on the first post that the post they removed did not even have anything written on it:

14492465_1102741069774688_4659529541077065759_n

Because we no longer write any words on our Facebook page, lest we offend someone. So we were suspended 30 days for writing nothing. Makes sense.

So I guess that means Facebook won’t let ANYONE post about this story right? Oh wait……

In other words, this is blatant discrimination on Facebook’s part. At least it has to be if they stick by their lie that human beings review each and every reported Facebook post.

Look, we’re gonna keep fighting this on our end. It’s obviously hard because there is no appeals process and Facebook has no customer service. Over 75% of our daily traffic comes directly from Facebook. But what we need from you all is to spread the word about this. Share the crap out of this on Facebook. This should be a much bigger story, not because they’re screwing us over, but because it can happen to anyone. All it takes is a troll or two with too much time on their hands, mass reporting pages they don’t like for “violence” or “pornography.” Facebook is a private company so they can do whatever they want, but it’s just a terrible look for them, and more people should know about it.

In the meantime please do the following if you haven’t already:

  • Like the Lost Boys of Turtle Facebook pageIt’s only got about 4,000 followers (our main page was about to pass 38,000), so the word is not being spread as it should be. Help us out by getting at least 1,000 new turtle riders on there by the end of the week.
  • Like the Turtleboy Sports Smiles and Sunshine Facebook page, in case the Lost Boys of Turtle page is suspended.
  • Follow Turtleboy Sports on Twitter. If you don’t have Twitter, make an account. We’ve never had any of our Tweets pulled down by them, and we’re a million times more offensive on there.
  • Sign up to receive emails every time we write a blog. There is a prompt on the top right hand corner of your desktop computer where you can sign up. On mobile devices you can find it at the bottom of the site. We don’t spam. You just get an email when a blog has been published.
  • Go directly to the site. It’s insane how some people think we’re dead when our Facebook page doesn’t post anymore. Facebook is just a medium that use to spread our content. But the actual content you came to read is on our site. You can comment on there too. It’s fun.

Anyway, if you think we’re going to stop our fight you’re dead wrong. We will not be censored and we will not keep spreading the truth, no matter how much The Man tries to stop us.

 

We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.

    Why bother with The Facebook? Just access TBS on the Google Machine. Problem solved.

    1. wabbitt


      Because a lot of people are sheep and get all of their information through Facebook.

  2. Jack Mehoff


    I’ve never had my Facebook page suspended for something I posted.

    Because I am smart and don’t have one!

    No sympathy, TB. I know you generate revenue from the likes, etc but really, how many times do you have to grab that shiny copper wire before you learn that it bites?

    Sell cookies, collect cans and bottles with the homeless or prostitute yourself on backpage, all are better than relying on Facebook.

    1. Mirror Mirror


      Not to mention that Facebook lets BLM sites, etc threaten cops, whites, etc with absolurtely NO reprecussions, and makes money off Turtleboy. Fuck those liberal pukes.

  3. LOL


    The closing:
    Anyway, if you think we’re going to stop our fight you’re dead wrong. We will not be censored and we will not keep spreading the truth, no matter how much The Man tries to stop us.

    Um was this a slip? You’re going to “not keep spreading the truth”?

    I kid, I kid… You pissed a few people off. It’s the ONE way people can get to you.

    FB is the face of speech and mind control

  5. juror seven esq.


    Perhaps this is the SJW from Grafton getting even with you? There are people out there that have a hard-on for you Turtleboy.

  6. The Culprits


    all you have to do turtleboy is ban fiesty and kevin lynch then BOOM problem solved….those two are killing you….100% guaranteed those two are responsible for the face book shut downs….probably Wwy too….he’s another douche.
