Gabor Javorszky

Podcast Description

“I have this enormous privilege. It would be a shame to not use it. Then again I get the thinking around it because I was brought up with that pretty much instilled in me since I was like five: like work for your stuff and then it’s your stuff and no one else take your stuff away from you. Like what’s the point of hoarding all this thing and not helping someone else?”

How to Be An Antiracist Ep. 6

Podcast Description

Body

Bodily Racist: One who is perceiving certain racialized bodies as more animal-like and violent than others.

Bodily Antiracist: One who is humanizing, deracializing, and individualizing nonviolent and violent behavior.

Homework

  1. Page 73: “Unarmed Black bodies, which apparently look armed to fearful officers, are about twice as likely to be killed as unarmed white bodies.” I know that you can name many unarmed Black folks , from the media, who have been killed by police i.e. Amber Geiger. I want to you understand how commonplace this is by doing research within your own community to find examples of the harm/killing of unarmed Black folks. How is technology being created and used to facilitate these behaviors?
  2. Page 79: Find examples of the fear related to the success of Black businesses and communities
  3. What is the difference between correlation vs causation? How has the misuse of these terms been used to promote the ideas and beliefs of policies and policing of Black bodies?

Anonymous Bootcamp Guest 3

Podcast Description

“In part I felt this was a safe decision because I had discovered Pursuit from my local library…I went to my own library’s coding classes and at the library’s graduation ceremony they were giving out information on other coding bootcamps if you wanted to take this a little further and Pursuit was one of them. So, I felt if the library was giving me this information, then they must have at least heard a pitch to have cleared this.”
