Facebook apologised on Friday after black employees anonymously shared feelings of workplace bias in an online post. The post shared at Medium by a “FB Blind” profile laid out perceived slights by managers, white colleagues, and the human resources department. “No one at Facebook, or anywhere, should have to put up with this behavior,” corporate communications vice president Bertie Thomson said in response to an AFP query. “We are sorry. It goes against everything that we stand for as a company. We´re listening and working hard to do better.” Incidents described in the Medium post included being targeted for negative performance reviews or snide comments. “On the inside, we are sad. Angry. Oppressed. Depressed,” the post read. “And treated every day through the micro and macro aggressions as if we do not belong here.”
