Author of memo blasting Facebook’s ‘black people problem’ speaks out

The Facebook manager who wrote a memo accusing the company of systemic racism has described an atmosphere that he said was dismissive when he raised the issue with the company’s human resources department.

Mark S. Luckie, who was a manager on the company’s entertainment and partnerships team, on Tuesday publicly posted the memo in which he alleges that Facebook “has a black people problem.”

Luckie said in a phone interview with NBC News that he brought the issue to Facebook’s attention, which downplayed the issue.
