Facebook Uses Racist Math According To Ben Carson

The instances of Facebook acting like a shadowy overload just keep piling up. In the most recent reveal of their villainous plots, Ben Carson claims the social media giant uses racist advertising algorithms. 

Carson is secretary for the Department of Housing and Development (HUD) and just dropped this bombshell of a report.

“Facebook is discriminating against people based upon who they are and where they live. Using a computer to limit a person’s housing choices can be just as discriminatory as slamming a door in someone’s face.”

This isn’t the first time such an issue has arisen either. In 2016, ProPublica led an investigation that found Facebook employed an “ethnic affinities” tool in its advertising. These tools had the ability to block black or Hispanic users from viewing specific ads, which was abused by employers, real estate companies and more.

After the fallout of that investigation, Facebook removed the tool and many similar features. However, according the new HUD report Facebook’s automated algorithms are continuing to segregate ads to people based on race, even if the actual advertiser is seeking to reach out to a multicultural audience. 

This essentially outs Facebook as having racist math behind its programming. Which is bad news for Zuckerberg as discrimination is still against the law.

“Even as we confront new technologies, the fair housing laws enacted over half a century ago remain clear — discrimination in housing-related advertising is against the law,” HUD General Counsel Paul Compton stated. “Just because a process to deliver advertising is opaque and complex doesn’t mean that it exempts Facebook and others from our scrutiny and the law of the land.”

The HUD complaint reads that “[Facebook] has provided a toggle button that enables advertisers to exclude men or women from seeing an ad, a search-box to exclude people who do not speak a specific language from seeing an ad, and a map tool to exclude people who live in a specified area from seeing an ad by drawing a red line around that area.”

    1. I agree with you, Maureen. When are the blacks, Hispanics, Jews and Asians going to learn that the Democrats party is a racist group who use them to get into office. I think more blacks are getting the message. God help them to see through the the illusion they put up and the lies they tell.

  1. When is all people going to realize Fakebook is, always has been and will continue to be used by the government to exploit the American people?
    May I suggest everyone closing their fakebook accounts and get rid of these parasites.

  2. Please tell us how a computer knows what race the user is, or what income he/she makes, or where the user lives. I’ve been looking at hundreds, maybe thousands, of real estate ads for my son. Not one of them ever asked for my location, race, or income level before allowing me to see the ads from hundreds of different realtors. Why is it that every time blacks don’t get what they want everyone in society must be racist. The word has been overused and has become meaningless!

  3. that’s not all FB is doing they also won’t let any Concretive group use their site to put any sort of campaigning info or ads on but will allow Left leaning Orgs or Politicians to do so,which shows what a big Hypocrite tool of the Left they really arte

  4. Zuckerman is definitely a Democrat. Facebook rejected a post that I made to family members that had the name Jesus in it. Are they Atheists? Also if you share too fast, you will be shut down. I have a lot of family and share a lot of posts with them. What is going on?
