Why is Facebook kicking Native Americans off the site?

Why is Facebook kicking Native Americans off the site?

Facebook is in hot water. Again. Several Native Americans are accusing Facebook of racism after their accounts were disabled. This is actually a bit upsetting and, understandably, more than a little frustrating for the victims.

Remember when Facebook changed its policy about using fake names? This was done to cut down on people creating fake accounts to spam or bully other Facebook users. Or, like the DEA fake profile fiasco, to catch criminals by impersonating real people.

The social media mogul got in trouble before for kicking a large number of drag queens, kings and transgenders off of the site for not using their legal names. The rule was eventually changed to accommodate these folks, but now Facebook is kicking Native Americans off the site.
