There are many resources talking about the various societal ills fueld by big tech, but this is the first I’ve read looking at it from a Black feminist perspective. It details how systemic racism is replicated online and how search and information retrieval systems, primarily Google Search, are not objective, neutral pieces of technology. This was very interesting and I’d recommend it to anyone interested in the place of tech companies in society.
