The social network Facebook will spend $ 200 million to support businesses and organizations owned by blacks, said Facebook’s chief operating officer Cheryl Sandberg on the company’s blog.
“The past few weeks have forced us to confront the reality of violence and injustice that black community members face daily. We have combined the ideas of different groups of our employees in different teams on how we can better deal with racial injustice. We are providing $ 200 million to support businesses and black-owned organizations, “Sandberg said in a statement.
