US Department of Housing and Urban Development Hits Facebook For Allowing Housing Discrimination


#1

“According to the complaint, Facebook permitted advertisers to discriminate based on disability by blocking ads to users the company categorized as having interests in “mobility scooter” or “deaf culture.” It similarly discriminates based on familial status by not showing ads to users that were labeled as being interested in “child care” or “parenting,” according to the complaint.”

When someone from Trump’s government tells you you’re being discriminatory against people on grounds of race, religion, sex, and disability, it must be extreme.
