Black Leaders Demand Facebook Answer For 'Disturbing Civil Rights Violations'

https://newsone.com/3890704/facebook-civil-rights-violations/

Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg have come under for being accused of doing little to nothing to spread misinformation, especially during election cycles. Now civil rights leaders are speaking out.

A letter from Al Sharpton, Founder & President, National Action Network (NAN), Derrick Johnson, President and CEO, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and Marc Morial, President & CEO, National Urban League (NUL)read, “National Action Network (NAN), National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and the National Urban League (NUL) would like to meet with you in person as soon as possible to discuss our concerns as Civil Rights leaders regarding issues of election security and voter suppression tactics.”

The letter continued, “Bad actors have identified the Black community as strategic targets on Facebook’s platform to propagate racial division and have implemented unregulated influence campaigns that weaponize a deeply painful racial experience in this country to marginalize our community, our voices, and our votes.”

As of yet, Zuckerberg has not responded.
