Facebook To Stop Letting Advertisers Discriminate Against Ethnic Groups...Again

Facebook is sorry that it was caught allowed advertisers to once again discriminate against ethnic groups. The company promises to do better in the future at least until they are caught doing it again.

"Until we can better ensure that our tools will not be used inappropriately, we are disabling the option that permits advertisers to exclude multicultural affinity segments from the audience for their ads," Facebook said in a letter to Cedric Richmond (D-La.), chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus.
