Blackbird in the Coal Mine — Are Technology Platforms Stifling Black Community? — Part 2
17 oct. 2018 - In Part 1, I wrote about the technology conditions that led to a group of entrepreneurs creating Blackbird, a custom browser and web search to showcase African American content. While many applauded Blackbird’s efforts to contribute to an emerging Black content community online, others saw Blackbird much more negatively. For some, the fact that a product showcased Black content meant it excluded people from other racial or ethnic groups, or that it promoted a form of self-segregation. For many, they simply did not see a “problem” with the mainstream’s approach to search or showcasing content, and because Blacks were not marginalized to begin with creating a vehicle to address marginalization made no sense. After all, the Internet was supposed to be colorblind.

You’re Doing It Wrong: Notes on Criticism and Technology Hype
1 feb. 2021 - Maybe more people are writing about the real and potential problems of technology today than ever before. That is mostly a good thing. The list of books and articles from the last few years that have nuanced and illuminating perspectives on the contemporary technological situation is rich and long.

De tragedie achter de toeslagenaffaire
15 jan. 2021 - De toeslagenaffaire ontstond niet door kwaadwillende personen of schuldige kabinetten, maar door de dynamiek tussen de regering, de Tweede Kamer, de ambtenarij, de rechtspraak, de pers en wijzelf – kijkers en kiezers. Het aftreden van het kabinet lost dat niet op, en voorkomt ook geen volgende affaire. Het systeem zélf moet op de schop.

Understanding Digital Racism After COVID-19
12 nov. 2020 - The Oxford Internet Institute hosts Lisa Nakamura, Director Digital Studies Institute, Gwendolyn Calvert Baker Collegiate Professor, Department of American Culture, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Professor Nakamura is the founding Director of the Digital Studies Institute at the University of Michigan, and a writer focusing on digital media, race, and gender. 'We are living in an open-ended crisis with two faces: unexpected accelerated digital adoption and an impassioned and invigorated racial justice movement. These two vast and overlapping cultural transitions require new inquiry into the entangled and intensified dialogue between race and digital technology after COVID. My project analyzes digital racial practices on Facebook, Twitter, Zoom, and TikTok while we are in the midst of a technological and racialized cultural breaking point, both to speak from within the crisis and to leave a record for those who come after us. How to Understand Digital Racism After COVID-19 contains three parts: Methods, Objects, and Making, designed to provide humanists and critical social scientists from diverse disciplines or experience levels with pragmatic and easy to use tools and methods for accelerated critical analyses of the digital racial pandemic.'

Sociale media verwijderen elk jaar miljoenen schokkende video’s. Maar daarmee gaat ook cruciaal bewijs verloren
18 sep. 2020 - Facebook, Twitter, YouTube en andere sociale media verwijderen steeds meer gewelddadige, haatzaaiende en misleidende content van hun platforms. Maar daarmee vernietigen ze ook cruciaal bewijs voor ernstige misdrijven. Is daar een oplossing voor te vinden?

Facebook —het grootste land ter wereld— is gemaakt om te profileren (ook etnisch)
23 jun. 2016 - Typhoon werd als zwarte rapper in een mooie auto aangehouden. Sindsdien is de discussie over etnisch profileren terecht losgebarsten. Er is daarbij zelden aandacht voor het feit dat de businessmodellen van diensten uit Silicon Valley grotendeels zijn gebaseerd op profilering, en dat etnisch profileren daarbij als innovatief marketinginstrument wordt aangeprezen.

Facebook weigert advertentie met cover van OPZIJ met zwarte vrouw
17 aug. 2020 - Facebook heeft een advertentie met cover van het feministische maandblad OPZIJ offline gehaald omdat deze overeenkomsten zou vertonen met een blackface-afbeelding. Op de cover van het tijdschrift prijkt de beeltenis van Dr. Abbie Vandivere. De wetenschapper haalde de wereldpers met haar ontdekkingen tijdens de restauratie van Vermeer’s Meisje met de parel voor het Mauritshuis. Vandivere is zwart en heeft op de foto haar lippen rood geverfd.
