The Black Myths Podcast

Jun 24, 2021

In this episode, we demystify the concept of algorithms and how they are technological representations of oppressive systems at large via Big Data/Big Tech. We explore the recently published Data 4 Black lives report, "Data Capitalism," to demonstrate how the process of data mining and producing algorithms to coerce labor has its roots in slavery. We examine current labor practices with Amazon and advertising mechanisms that all use algorithms to exploit Black people and other colonized people in the US. In our following episode, we will explore these practices and more outside of the borders of the US.
