An anonymous memo that alleges racism at Facebook is reportedly being discussed within the company, Business Insider reports. The memo which was published Thursday on Medium describes the experiences of a dozen past and present Facebook employees who claimed to have encountered racism among their co-workers and higher-ups.
“While eating breakfast, two white employees asked me to clean up after their mess. I am a program manager,” one account in the memo read. “I told my manager about the incident. She told me I need to dress more professionally.” Another individual claimed that she approached HR about discrimination happening on their team, but they were only told: “there is no bias at Facebook.”
The memo also has screenshots of an app called Blind, which allows employees to anonymously post experiences. The screenshots include a comment claiming the black population is less intelligent than other races, and a poll asking if black people “just like to complain” about their treatment.
