“The next target is an African-American who is an associate general counsel at the Federal Communications Commission – Mark Lloyd. Lloyd is in charge of diversity programs at the FCC. We are particularly concerned about attacks on Lloyd, because we view diversity in media ownership as an important component in the effort to battle institutional racism.”
