Facebook censorship bias detailed in internal documents

"Facebook’s “noncommittal” response to the groups’ request last year prompted them to ask to meet with company representatives, but the company did not respond, said Malkia Cyril, executive director of the Center for Media Justice, in an email to SiliconBeat Thursday. Similarly, Facebook did not respond to a petition urging it to change its censorship policies, he said.

“Now we know why,” Cyril said. “Racial discrimination is built into the structure of how they manage content, and it harms communities of color using the platform. It’s time for a change.”"
