Facebook purged the photos of a racist, violent sabotage of a car by Sturgis Brown High School students, priot to a football game with Pine Ridge Lakota high school students. Sturgis High canceled its homecoming activities and forfeited a football game against Pine Ridge because of the attack.
The purging of photos on Facebook came next.
Jim Kent, writing in Lakota Country Times, said, "If only racism could be as easily expunged from our communities as it is from our 'personal' Facebook pages and by the media."

Censored News seeks sponsors for Native Americans to COP 23 Germany

Hi friends,
Censored News is seeking sponsors for a few of our hard working Native American writers to be part of the climate discussions at the peoples' World Climate Change Conference, in Bonn, Germany. World leaders will discuss the crisis of climate change at COP 23, Nov. 6 -- 17, 2017.
The airfare cost for our longtime Native writers is $1,400 each, plus the cost of food and ground transportation.
If you can provide sponsorship, please contact me for more information.
Our Native writers have shared their work without pay over the past 12 years, exposing the censored news in Indian country, as they struggle against human rights violations in their homelands.
Recent hurricanes, floods and wildfires alert us all to the necessity of working together for solutions, and creating bonds with good hearts around the Earth.
Thank you, Brenda
