NEW YORK — In response to New York Times’ story exposing Facebook’s failure to protect users’ privacy, Color Of Change issued the following comment.
Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson:
The latest development on Facebook allowing third parties to access personal user data follows a pattern of behavior that we are starting to see far too often —- dishonesty, followed by apologies and paper-thin promises to change. Color Of Change has been steadfast in our demands for more transparency and the need for safety for Black people and people from marginalized communities. Facebook cannot be trusted to self-regulate. In order to address Facebook’s systemic failures, including rampant voter suppression and other civil rights concerns, urgent action must be taken by Congressional leaders and the Federal Trade Commission to implement the recommendations of civil rights organizations.
