Facebook ad platform discriminates all on its own, say boffins

Maybe it's not discrimination at all.

So now it has to be gender neutral and ethnic neutral advertisng only? Let's face it, how many men buy cosmetics? Or women who buy say power tools? How many whites buy black cosmetics? Or vice versa? Advertising has always had "target markets" as have a lot of products. There's magazines and <gasp> websites solely focused on various gender and ethnic populations. Should this apply to them also?
