Some employees at Facebook HQ in Menlo Park, CA still don’t understand the meaning behind the Black Lives Matter mantra. The BLM movement was created to shed light on the racial profiling, police brutality and racial inequality experienced by the African-American community.
In a private memo posted on a company announcement page for employees only, Mark Zuckerberg acknowledged that employees have been scratching out “black lives matter” (sic) and writing “all lives matter” on the company’s famous signature wall. The company, whose staff is only 2 percent black, is facing the issue head on. “We’ve never had rules around what people can write on our walls,” said Zuckerberg in the post. “We expect everybody to treat each other with respect.” The entire message, obtained by Gizmodo, is posted in full below.
Do you find yourself still trying to explain to people why #AllLivesMatter is incorrect?
