Illinois congresswoman calls Facebook racist




Congresswoman Robin Kelly, an extreme progressive from Illinois, was one of four members of Congress to write Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg accusing his company of indulging in racist practices. Kelly, who promotes "multiculturalism" considers Facebook's multicultural marketing to be racist when it comes to housing advertisements the social media giant carries.

"We are writing to express our deep concerns with reports that Facebook's 'Ethnic Affinities' advertising customization feature allows for advertisers to exclude specific racial and ethnic groups when placing housing advertisements," Kelly wrote in the letter to Zuckerberg.

Kelly and her fellow politicians were reacting to a report by the left-wing ProPublica that claims Facebook's ad portal allowed advertisers to target specific groups and exclude users based on their "ethnic affinities," using data that the social network has collected on its users.

"Multicultural marketing is a common practice in the ad industry and helps brands reach audiences with more relevant advertising," Facebook said in a statement. "We've heard from groups and policy makers who are concerned about some of the ways our targeting tools could be used by advertisers. We are listening and working to better understand these concerns."

Kelly responded by claiming that companies like Facebook would be more sensitive if they hired more Blacks and Hispanics. She was strangely silent concerning all other ethnic groups. Some argue her muteness is, in fact, racism by omission.
