At nearly every step, Mark Zuckerberg has refused to take a stand against Donald Trump. Whatever way the President chooses to violate Facebook’s rules, the site’s founder has been content to let it go. This has led to plenty of turmoil within Zuckerberg’s own company. On Tuesday, two Facebook workers proudly announced they were quitting the company over the company’s handling of Trump.
Rashad Robinson is the President of a group called Colors of Change. The Civil Rights Activist recently spoke with Zuckerberg about race issues. Robinson came away confused and saying that the tech genius doesn’t have the capacity to understand race issues.
The Civil Rights leader told Bloomberg, “The problem with my ongoing conversations with Mark, is that I feel like I spent a lot of time, and my colleagues spent a lot of time, explaining to him why these things are a problem, and I think he just very much lacks the ability to understand it.”
Robinson continued, “His employees are outraged. I’ve got outreach from some of them. Saying Black Lives Matter, saying I’m going to give money, but having your policies actually hurt black people, people will know the difference.”
The Colors of Change President closed his comments, “He continues to do things and make decisions that hurt communities and put people in harm’s way and is not accountable for it.”
