When the water is there, it will pour out – and a year is totally a & # 39; continues to grow on Facebook by opposing bad governance.
Mark Luckie, a former black worker, who had the job was said; His ability to deal with the organization's relationship with "influencers" clearly sets out: "Black Facebook is having a problem."
The 2,500 word note, posted on Tuesday, explains what it is; See as a culture that includes inclusion, but does not use it. In some of the properties of the company, Mr Luckie said, there were "more Black Black Matters" than "real black people" posters.
He describes how he and other black workers often went to feeling uncomfortable in the work. "Black staff know on Facebook, by raising our voices, which threatens the risk of our professional relationships and career promotion," he said.
As well as those who work for Mark Zuckerberg, Mr Luckie said he felt that black Facebook users were also treated unfairly.
"Black people find out that their effort is to create Facebook's safe places for chatting around the world.
"Black-haired people are saying what they mean to be positive efforts as a speech of hatred, despite the fact that they often do not break the terms of Facebook service."
Mr Luckie's views are disturbing social media. And the next thing follows according to the pattern that is now familiar: Facebook will produce a contradictory statement, only to be more likely to be subject to reductions in debates inside that's like to & # 39; shows a different picture.
Self-service & # 39;
Initially the public recital came from a Facebook spokesman Anthony Harrison.
"Growth in the representation of people from more diverse organizations, working in many over-the-counter operations, is a key driver of our success ability.
"We want to support all of the staff as a whole when things are said and when there may be misconduct that will arise. ; continue to make what we can become a very open company. "
But then, the inside will run. Although Mr Luckie's appointment was published on Tuesday, it was circulated on Facebook on 8 November. At that time he received a response from Ime Archibong, a Facebook director for product partnerships.
On Tuesday, Mr Luckie responded to this response to Twitter, which suggested that Facebook's Facebook debts were public; respond as he said to him.
Mr Luckie was likely to attempt to protect Mr Archibong's identity by nameing and designing, but lost one mention of "Ime" in other places on the screen, telling about the source . Mr Archibong – who is also black – has confirmed his comments.
He said that Mr. Luckie's note was "a pretty self-sufficient and unhappy" and stated that he would have a "self-sufficient agenda" and not one of the best goals of to community and people; you need to consider core friends ".
Everyone, naturally, deserves their opinion. And Mr. Archibong speaks to himself, not a & # 39; company. And, as ever in a large company, all of the experiences could be different, and the examples given.
But this fright is to regulate its & # 39; I think Facebook is more difficult because it is not look dona, rather than assessing it to do dona Diversity over the case.
The lowest line is that the statistics tell a story: a Facebook community of 2.7bn users is run by staff where black people are just up 4% – or 1% if you & Looking specially on the developer's posts. There is no sign of that.
