Facebook Refuses to Take Down Photo of Black Panther Slitting Cop’s Throat

Facebook is refusing to remove a photo with a hooded figure slitting the throat of a uniformed policeman:

Facebook has refused to remove a sickening cartoon of a police officer having his throat slit from a Black Panther page used by Dallas cop killer Micah Xavier Johnson

The picture was originally posted by Black Panther Party Mississippi.  The RBG on the posting stands for red, black and green, the colors of the Pan-African flag seen at many protests.  The meme was posted by a user who goes by the handle of Prince Mamuhammed.

Now, Facebook cannot be held responsible for every single post on it’s site.  That is why they allow people to challenge content.  So, what did Facebook think of this offensive meme when they reviewed it?

The image has been reported to Facebook but the social media website refused to take it down, saying it does not violate the company's 'community standards'

I fail to see how leaving this offensive meme up promotes either safety or a welcoming environment.
