How to Be An Antiracist – A Strategy

Podcast Description

Episode Overview

  • Operating Perspective: There’s no “I’m not racist.” There’s ONLY racist and antiracist.
  • An antiracist strategy isn’t about equality. It is about actually discrimination against the interests of the privileged, in favor of prioritizing the most vulnerable
  • I’m not here to rehabilitate or change anyone’s mind. I want them gone because they’re taking up space and resources.
  • “Friends” who are 1 to 2 degrees away from individuals who actively, intentionally, and strategically cause harm, which makes you unsafe to the most vulnerable.

Resources

Homework

  • Take some time to think about the things related to race that make you uncomfortable. Write them down and begin to better understand how they create barriers for you on your antiracist journey
  • Find someone in the community who is doing the work of antiracism and commit to finding out what kind of support they need and PROVIDE it
  • Sign up for The Alliance Website and Twitter

Kate Klonick

Podcast Description

“Everyone wanted diversity for the board, but it was really unclear as to how on Earth you have diversity over an entire globe with only 40 people on the entire board.”

Kate Klonick is an Assistant Professor at Law at St. John’s University Law School and an Affiliate Fellow at the Information Society Project at Yale Law School. Her current research focuses on the development of Facebook’s new Oversight Board — an independent body that will hear user appeals from Facebook users and advise the platform about its online speech policies. Thanks to individual grants from the Knight Foundation, Charles Koch Institute, and MacArthur Foundation, she has amassed over 100+ hours of interviews and embedded research with the Governance Team at Facebook that is creating the Board. The results of this research will be published in a law review article in the Yale Law Journal in 2020, but available in draft form online in late 2019.

Kate holds a  JD from Georgetown University Law Center, where she was a Senior Editor at The Georgetown Law Journal and the Founding Editor of the The Georgetown Law Journal Online; and a PhD from Yale Law School where she studied under Jack Balkin, Tom Tyler, and Josh Knobe.  Between law school and her time at Yale, she clerked for the Hon. Richard C. Wesley of the Second Circuit and the Hon. Eric N. Vitaliano of the Eastern District of New York.

She has a background in cognitive psychology which she apply to the study of emerging issues in law and technology. Specifically, this has included research and work on the Internet’s effect on freedom of expression and private platform governance. Kate also writes and works on issues related to online shaming, artificial intelligence, robotics, content moderation, algorithms, privacy, and intellectual property.

Her work on these topics has appeared in the Harvard Law Review, the Southern California Law ReviewMaryland Law ReviewNew YorkerNew York TimesThe AtlanticSlateLawfareVoxThe Guardian and numerous other publications.

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?
