Digital Redlining After Trump: Real Names + Fake News on Facebook

It was my real name

They made me change my name when it was my real name (my first name as my friends call me). I had to change it to my middle name so I could enter my account. I just couldn’t anymore if I didn’t. There was no way in. 
I post a lot about racism and nuclear power, as well as GMOs and African history (but I am classified as “white” in the racial classification system). So I guess I know why I was targeted. 
How do they know who’s using a real name in Africa? There are as many name as there are people, since name systems are different from the European patriarcal denomination system. 
So, this is all BS, and just a way to show us “who rules”.
