A group representing journalists of color has come out in support of the concept of network neutrality. The Federal Communications Commission is currently considering proposed rules to regulate Internet access in an attempt to keep the Internet more open and support so-called Net neutrality principles.
“Journalists of Color believes that Net Neutrality is fundamental to maintaining a free flow of ideas and vibrant democracy on the Internet. UNITY believes the integrity of the Internet depends upon the inclusion of diverse media voices and communities of color. We oppose any efforts by means of technological, legislative, or content strategies to block innovation and free speech on the Internet,” reads the group’s Web site.
UNITY: Journalists of Color, says it represents more than 10,000 journalists of color and is made up of four national associations including the Asian American Journalists Association, National Association of Black Journalists, National Association of Hispanic Journalists, and the Native American Journalists Association.
