A vital tool for economic opportunity and for fighting hate

People of color have no reason to trust that corporations will act against their own business interests. We have no choice but to seek long-term solutions that protect net neutrality from the whims and wishes of politicians.

The time has come for Congress to move legislation that creates new net neutrality laws designed to grow along with future technologies. These measures should ensure a competitive marketplace that empowers new entrants and prohibits gatekeeping that strangles future innovation. We also need regulatory regimes that encourage the fastest possible deployment of new technologies to give businesses and consumers new ways to receive broadband services. Competition will keep everyone honest.

The same companies that control access to the internet also own most of the content. How is it possible for any independent company to expect to be treated fairly when the company's competitors control access to the company's customers? Can we really rely on Comcast to choose high internet speed for an online series they don't own over streaming an NBC program they do?

Modern movements for change started online. From the Arab Spring in 2012, to the launch of the 21st century Civil Rights Movement through #BlackLivesMatter, to the rise of #WaterIsLife on indigenous lands, the Internet has provided people of color with pathways to driving monumental social change against hate. More than that, it's given our communities a leg up into entrepreneurship and financial stability.

Imagine a world without the viral necessity of Black Twitter, or one where creators like AFROPunk can't reach their global following. Or think of a world where critical videos from online news outlets like Now This or Vice, outlets that often expose untold narratives, no longer stream clearly on our Facebook walls. This is a world free of diverse, creative talents that make the Internet a special place for people of color and those without money or influence to find economic success. Without immediate Congressional action, that sad world is destined to become our reality.

Brian Woolfolk is the founding executive director of Full Color Future, a new thinktank and advocacy organization committed to changing the narrative about people of color in media, tech and innovation. With over 20 years of Hill experience, Brian served as Democratic Counsel on the US House Judiciary Committee and advised Committee Members on the Telecommunications Act, media ownership diversity, and free speech issues.

Full Color Future has received funding from tech companies and foundations supporting net neutrality.
