Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Scolds Employees for Defacing 'Black Lives Matter' Slogan

MENLO PARK — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg scolded employees this week for crossing out the phrase “Black Lives Matter” and writing “All Lives Matter” on the walls of the company’s headquarters.

In a leaked internal message, Zuckerberg said he and other leaders have told employees in the past to stop the behavior but it hasn’t ceased yet.

“I was already very disappointed by this disrespectful behavior before, but after my clear communication I now consider this malicious as well,” he wrote in the post.

The company has a physical wall at its headquarters where visitors and employees can write messages, and the 31-year-old CEO noted that crossing out a phrase is equivalent to silencing speech. Facebook declined to comment on the record about the incidents, which the company is investigating.

Zuckerberg’s stern remarks come as tech companies, including Facebook are trying to diversify a workforce that is mostly made up of white and Asian men. About 2 percent of Facebook’s U.S. workforce is black, and a smaller percentage are tech employees at the social media company, data from 2015 shows.

” ‘All Lives Matter’ is one of a number of coded phrases that tell employees of color that they don’t really belong. Similar to the damning praise of telling a Black man that he is articulate, or complaining that diversity efforts mean ‘lowering the bar,’ ” Freada Kapor Klein, a partner at the Kapor Center for Social Impact in Oakland, said in a statement. “It’s exactly these sorts of slights and micro-aggressions that cause talent of color to leave the job and contributes to the overall dismal diversity we see in tech.”

    To me this ridiculous enchilada looks like a PR ploy to avoid affirmative action hires.

  2. They don’t hire them anyway. Zuckerberg’s inner circle acquaintances and FB’s board of directors is whiter than a blank canvas. I mean, even Anne Coulter gave him crap about it in one of her last books. Word is the majority of company workers hat actually do anything for a paycheck at FB are mostly white, too.

  3. Well it doesn’t say only black lives matter. I suppose it could say black lives matter also. Anyway, people who think black lives don’t matter are unlikely to be persuaded by a motto. Do African Americans generally disagree with American foreign policy. Or do they think brown lives matter? Maybe altering the posters IS free speech.

    The BLM folks want the government to reign in the cops. Me too. But I don’t think their slogan is helping their cause. They should be publicizing incidents of police brutality against white people.

  4. Mark Zuckerberg did what a good Zionist Jew is supposed to do: support Black and LGBT minorities to whitewash his ancestors’ crime against them. A great majority of Black civil rights movements and the ‘gay rights groups’ outside Israel were either created by Zionist Jews or funded by them including Rev. Martin Luther Jr. Christian sheep.

    Interestingly, the only Afro-American organization hated by the Organized Jewry is for being the true believer in #Black Lives Matter.

    In October 2012, Abraham Foxman, then ADL top gun, called Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan “Jew hater” for saying: “Jews control Hollywood. Well they said it themselves! Jews control the media. They said themselves! Jews and some gentiles control the banking industry, international banks. They do! In Washington right next to the Holocaust Museum is the Federal Reserve where they print the money. Is that an accident?”

    In response to Foxman’s rant, ‘Nation of Islam’ research team posted an investigative article on March 12, 2014, entitled, ‘Jews Run Hollywood – So What?‘.

    “So right from the start, the ADL fully understood the damage that filmed images could cause to the reputation of a people. And ever since then, under the watchful eyes of the ADL, Hollywood Jews sanitized their own movie images; but in film after film these same Jews ran the images and the reputation of Blacks into the gutter. Feeding the public movies replete with mammies and uncle toms, happy slaves and pickaninnies, thieves, hustlers and murderers, Jews assaulted the consciousness of the entire world with racism in its purest form. By foisting the enmity of the world upon the Black man—as their ancient rabbis did through the invention of the Curse of Ham—Jews enabled themselves to scapegoat, exploit, and dominate a “cursed” people to achieve unhampered their own success. And yet we are expected to stand mute even as the “best film” award goes to 12 Years a Slave, made by Arnon Milchan, who recently admitted that he is an Israeli Mossad propaganda agent,” says the article.

    Facebook, the website that does more to promote anti-semitism than stormfront ever possibly could.

  6. Another crap from an Israeli professional hasbara creep.

    “Jewish Lives Don’t Matter” – Adolph Hitler.

    Last year, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu admitted that Adolf Hitler loved Jews. It was Palestinian Mufti who forced Hitler to go against Jews.

    How could Facebook promote hatred toward Jews when it is owned by a Zionist Jew. Oops! I forgot, in 2013, Facebook allowed the US-based Christian radio talk-show, The Ugly Truth’, to set-up a Facebook page for former Iranian president Ahmadinejad’s fans to wish him 57th Birthday.

    Move facebook to detroit and hire blacks.

    ps: queenie?

  8. “The company has a physical wall at its headquarters where visitors and employees can write messages, and the 31-year-old CEO noted that crossing out a phrase is equivalent to silencing speech.”

    That’s pretty rich coming from the guy who promised Angela Merkel that he would use Facebook to help stamp out any dissent from her immigration policies. Facebook silences speech all the time.

    At least Stormfront is right about the impossible ’6M Jews, 5M others, & gas chambers’,

  10. If you haven’t figured out that white, yellow and brown don’t matter to the BLM crowd then I suggest you put down the cool aid pitcher and leave college for reality. Reign in the cops? There have been 400 shootings in Chicago so far this year with almost 100 people dead. That isn’t cops gone wild but the locals shooting the locals. BLM nowhere to be seen.

  11. You can’t legislate respect. With rights come responsibilities and the Blacks have not lived up to that so no one respects them.

  12. “sliencing speech” says the man who just promised in Germany to actually silence speech by deleting “hate comments” more regular.
    people are so terrorized so frightened, they only way they see to get out of this is by terrorizing others. I guess somebody like Zuckerberg is in real life deeply scared by black people.

  13. “In Washington right next to the Holocaust Museum is the Federal Reserve where they print the money. Is that an accident?”

    Nonsense. The Holocaust Museum is on 15th Street, S.W., just south of Independence Avenue. The Federal Reserve is located several miles away on 20th and Constitution Avenue, N.W. What you are confusing with the Federal Reserve is the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, which is part of the Treasury Department, and its building was constructed many decades before the Holocaust Museum was opened in 1993. The Holocaust Museum is constructed on the site formerly occupied by the abandoned structure of some government agency (Bureau of Indian Affairs? Wikipedia omits any mention of the previous occupant of the site). It was the decrepit state of the old building that originally was given as the reason for the site’s selection since it supposedly evoked the spirit of the concentration camp buildings in Europe where the Holocaust took place, but, once approved by Congress, that plan was quickly abandoned in favor of a complete redesign by an architect who had fled Germany as a child in 1939. The real reason for selecting that site was its proximity to the Mall, just south of the Washington Monument, because the Jews wanted the affirmation of having their European experience under Hitler (“12 Years a Slave Under Hitler”) sanctified by a museum on the Mall where all the other museums capturing the glorious achievements of the past are located (e.g., the Wright Brothers’ plane, the Spirit of St. Louis, the National Galley of Art).

  14. “The company has a physical wall at its headquarters……….”

    A wall? Have they no decency? Surely that is racist.

  15. BLM nowhere to be seen.

    There is very little federal land in Chicago. Why should there be a Bureau of Land Management presence there?

  16. No Moshe, it’s you who’re talking nonsense.

    Holocaust Museum in Washington DC was built over Federal Government land and cost more than $110 million to the US taxpayers plus donations from rich Jews who still beg money from DHS and Germany. The Federal Government also pays millions of dollars annually for staff salaries and building maintenance expenses. The Holocaust Museums in Israel, the US, Canada and Europe help Zionists to keep westerners’ guilty conscience alive.

    Currently, the Organized Jewry is building a ‘Righteous Gentile Memorial’ in Warsaw in honor of non-Jews who saved Jews from Catholic/Frankist Jew Nazis during 1938-43.

  17. You really are an ignorant Muslim asshole, rehmat. I indicated in my message that the abandoned building where the Holocaust Museum was built was owned by the Federal government (the Bureau of Indian Affairs is a Federal government agency, in case you weren’t aware). I also corrected your blatant error that the Museum is next to the Federal Reserve by correctly pointing out it is next to the Bureau of Engraving and Currency, a couple of miles away from the Federal Reserve. BTW I am not Jewish, so I don’t know what that “Moshe” bullshit is all about. You are truly an ignorant man. No matter how many times you are corrected, you still maintain that the Soviet Union and the Ottoman Empire had clashes, despite the indisputable fact that the Ottoman Empire expired before the Soviet Union came into existence. Idiot.

  18. I get Moshe from him all the time and look at my name. If you aren’t Muslim with a single-wide cave in Afghani-Whackistan, it’s all the same to Rhemat. As a matter of routine, most of his critiques involve fecal matter, something on his mind all the time because he boards his goat indoors. I suspect he finds it more cozy that way and with the added heat, he conserves camel dung, a popular fuel source in the caves. But Moshe, Tbraton? Hell, Rhemat likes you if that’s all he has in store.

  19. Cheap suits must take a very long time indeed to fall apart. You’ve been at this particular game for 20 years at least. Exactly how far have you gotten? Not very, I’d say.

  20. “But Moshe, Tbraton? Hell, Rhemat likes you if that’s all he has in store.”

    Are you implying that Rehmat has a thing for Jewish men? Well, then, that’s one more reason to be grateful that I’m not Jewish. But I would have thought that Rehmat would have confined his sexual longings to his fellow Muslim men and to goats.

  21. Not all white actually.

    When I worked in Silicon Valley circles, the upper echelons and tech staff were way overrepresented with Jews, then came whites. They covered their “diversity” bases by counting the various flavors of queer.

  22. Easy:

    To have rapidly deployable agents at hand to rein in all those gajillions of “neo-nazis” in Skokie.

  23. If I remember correctly, those “neo-Nazis” in Skokie have been a pain in the ass for a long time.
