Civil rights organizations, such as the Center for American Progress and Free Press, have started a petition that asks social networking companies and retailers to crack down on hate groups. This is in response to the Neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville last year and the recent Proud Boys recruitment on Facebook. Social media has often been a hot spot of hate speech. Various white nationalist groups have created various platforms on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Reddit, and other sites. This petition seeks to push companies to do even more than they’ve done about these groups.
