Facebook sure seems to be having a hard time understanding that whole "discrimination is a bad thing" lately. Employees at the company's North Carolina data center are claiming that Facebook didn't respond promptly to repeated complaints of harassment and are asking for $25,000 in compensatory and punitive damages each.

Facebook was struck with a racial discrimination lawsuit after two black employees at the social network's North Carolina data center alleged the company didn't respond promptly to repeated complaints of harassment. The suit, filed Tuesday in US District Court for the Northern District of California, alleges Facebook allowed "retaliation against the employees reporting discrimination to fester and continue" at the facility despite their continued complaints.
