(Daily Caller) Instagram thinks a post celebrating black people owning weapons is something the public should be shielded from.
An article titled “Column: Is California ready for more Black people to legally carry guns in public?” was making the rounds, and I screenshot the headline to share on Instagram with the caption, “If you find yourself worrying about more American citizens legally carrying guns and exercising their Second Amendment rights just because they’re minorities, congrats, you’re racist.”

To my great surprise, the post was first flagged as hidden and was then tagged as “sensitive content.” Yes, a post about how there’s nothing wrong with all races celebrating their God-given rights is “sensitive content” in the eyes of Instagram.
How the hell does that make sense?
Instagram is censoring my post encouraging and supporting minorities to exercise their God-given Second Amendment rights.
What about this could possibly be offensive to anyone? pic.twitter.com/EWfTio32CI

I attempted to reach out to Instagram on the phone and that quickly turned out to be a road to nowhere. Then, I fired off a pair of emails to the company asking how the hell this could ever be viewed as sensitive content.
So far, neither email has been responded to.
