Dear Facebook Supporters,
This is a serious message that we hope you will reshare on your Facebook page. You all may have noticed that this is the first post that has been shared on The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s Facebook page since Sunday, July 10th. Normally, you will see content being consistently posted, however, something happened the past several days.
FACEBOOK BLOCKED THE MINISTER’S PAGE!!
Starting on Thursday morning, July 7th, we got a notification that Facebook removed one of the video clips from this page that was posted earlier. It was a clip from the interview he did with Felisha Monet in Miami during last year’s Justice Or Else Tour. The video clip focused on The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s words that it is better to teach our people separation than prayer. He is also teaching in that clip on the need for us to stand up for justice. Interestingly, the clip was nearing a half a million views within two days. We reposted it to see if it would be removed again and it wasn’t. It now has over 1 Million Views.

Then on Friday morning, July 8th, we got another notification from Facebook that they removed another video from this page, which was actually posted back on June 30, 2016. The clip was from his interview with Hip-Hop Since 1976 in Philadelphia during last year’s Justice Or Else Tour as well, wherein he broke down how from spirituals to hip-hop, Whites have historically stolen our culture only to turn around to sell it back to us. And in the clip he was speaking about us being the Original People whom they always imitate. The video had reached nearly a million views. This video and the other one were also being heavily circulated on Twitter. When we were about to repost that video, Facebook gave us several pop-up notifications that this page had been placed on a 24-hour block until the evening of Saturday, July 9th; meaning we couldn’t post any content to this page at all, share anything nor respond to any inbox messages.
Facebook claimed the content violated their “community standards and policies” and sent us a link to read all of their policies which are targeting and removing posts that are related “direct threats, self-injury, dangerous organizations, bullying, harassment, attacks on public figures, criminal activity, sexual violence, nudity, hate, violence and graphic content.”
On July 10th, Facebook flagged one of the images of Minister Farrakhan shared by one of our Web Team (Admin) members and claimed he also violated polices. So, Facebook placed this page and the team member’s page on another 3 DAY BLOCK from posting any content, sharing any content or responding to any inbox messages.
With all of the filthy content on Facebook, why is Minister Farrakhan’s page being targeted? Interestingly, Minister Farrakhan’s page has gained over 40,000 new fans during this block! This shows that the people are hungry for his messages!
