Facebook flags aboriginal names as not 'authentic'

Facebook flags aboriginal names as not 'authentic' - Community - CBC News

Amazing that this company is doing this to North America's original people.

What do you think?

I personally know quite a few native people who have that problem. Some had been using their names for as many as 10 years and now suddenly they are cut off facebook and told tp change it or produce ID that that is their real name. There are several petitions circulating that call on facebook to stop this discrimination.

Rocket (Rocky) J Squirrel and Bullwinkle Moose are highly plausible names. Even Noname is a name. Check 411 Regina.

Naw it's just an automated program and the settings were tweaked just a little bit too far.

Remember when we couldn't say *****? Damn!

Injuns have silly names anyway. It's time they moved into the 21st century.
