Facebook VP of Civil Rights Roy Austin EVADES Questions on Civil Rights, Refuses to Say What is Meant by Running ‘Every Major Decision’ at Facebook Through a ‘Civil Rights Lens’

Project Veritas journalists approached Facebook Vice President of Civil Rights Roy Austin recently to get comment on what he said in a leaked video of Facebook’s internal meeting:

Roy Austin, Facebook VP of Civil Rights: “I wonder whether or not we can use Oculus to help a white police officer to understand what it feels like to be a young black man who’s stopped and searched and arrested by the police…I want every major decision [at Facebook] to run through a civil rights lens.”

Austin reacted with absolute silence every time a Veritas journalist asked him an important question about Facebook’s role in promoting civil rights:

Once Austin realized that the journalists would not stop pressing him for the truth, he finally decided to flee by entering a car.

Just like Facebook executives Nick Clegg and Guy Rosen, Austin had no intention of clarifying what he meant by using “Oculus to help a white police officer” or running “every major decision” at Facebook through a “civil rights lens.” 

Project Veritas encourages more Insiders who work in Big Tech companies to come forward.
