Facebook, Funny, and Love: Black Man Who Filmed Latino Workers Striking ls Fired from His Job, Regrets Nothing Regrann from @realnegus804 - Black and Brown Pride ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼 @the.root “Now Dangerfield, who said he had recently been offered a team lead job working as a contracted construction worker, says he’s been fired as a result of posting the video—after initially being offered $250 to take it down. “It was at 1.1 million views on Facebook at that point. So there was nothing I could do,” Dangerfield said in a recent interview with Jacobin magazine He also made it clear he has no regrets about filming the display of worker solidarity. “[The video] is funny or whatever, but people love seeing people come together like that. That’s why it’s so viral. Because everybody wants that deep down,” he told the magazine. Dangerfield also laid out what had been going at the site, where different contractors were working on building a UPS superhub in Indianapolis. According to the 30-year-old welder, the Latino workers had an issue with a white safety coordinator who would constantly harass them—“always messing with them, taking pictures and videos, trying to get them fired.” “He was just a racist, basically — always messing with anybody who’s not white,” Dangerfield said.” - regrann

Billboard, Fake, and Head: DELETE ALL YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS WARNS THE FOUNDING FATHER OF VIRTUAL REALITY imgflip.com In a new explosive interview, Silicon Valley tech pioneer and creator of the virtual reality 'avatar' Jaron Lanier tells people to delete your social media accounts due to the strong correlation between persistent social media usage and a dramatic societal rise in depression, anger, and anxiety that he says is the result of internet-induced modified forms of behavior. The warning comes in the wake of his new book which details how the creators of social media and the early engineers behind the internet "foolishly laid the foundations for global monopolies." Jaron Lanier is best known as a founding father of the field of virtual reality and throughout his polymath career has written extensively on human-computer interaction, including most recently in his book Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now. Lanier explained in a recent UK Channel 4 interview: When you watch the television the television isn't watching you. When you see the billboard the billboard isn't seeing you... When you use these new designs — social media, search, YouTube — when you see these things, you're being observed constantly and algorithms are taking that information and changing what you see next. According to Lanier's bio, he coined the term 'Virtual Reality' (VR) and in the early 1980s founded VPL Research, the first company to sell VR products. In the late 1980s he led the team that developed the first implementations of multi-person virtual worlds using head mounted displays, as well as the first "avatars," and developed the first widely used software platform architecture for immersive virtual reality applications. As he defiantly asserts on his personal website, Lanier himself has "no social media accounts at all and all purported ones are fake." He's elsewhere said that most internet and social media pioneers in Silicon Valley "have regrets right now" after perfecting what is essentially mass human behavioral engineering and that that internet addiction is not only ruining people's lives but the political process as well. This is what I could call almost a stealthy addiction. It's a statistical addiction.

Life, Love, and Photoshop: @gmail.com> to me Hi James, I think I emailed you once before and got no re sponse, so I'm trying again. If you ever have the time l'd love for this one to come true: James Fridman <fjamie013@gmail.com> I started self harming at the age of 13. I and have been clean for a while. The issue is, I've been suffering for so long that I haven't seen my arms looking clean, since I was a kid This method of dealing with stress will always have visible physical consequences followed by deep regrets. m 18 now As a young girl you were able to overcome something extremely traumatic and painful Something that you should never have had to live through as a child I want to see my arms without scars but I'm not very good with photoshop. I know the blur tool is good but it kinda just makes the skin look murky and weird when I use it (plus the closest thing to photoshop I can use is facetune). If this makes you uncomfortable then that's fine! I understand what you do is mostly comedy and it's not your job to do this. I won't be offended. But if you ever have the time or feel up to it, l'd love to see my scars removed. This is one of my favorite pictures of me, but it got kinda ruined by my arm. I know I'II have scars for the rest of my life but it would be nice to get rid of them just for one photo Look at your scars as a constant reminder of how strong you really are. Stay strong. Stay healthy. Thank you so much, I'm a big fan! Annie <p>Wholesome James via /r/wholesomememes <a href="https://ift.tt/2l027F8">https://ift.tt/2l027F8</a></p>

Anaconda, Memes, and American: Vulture @vulture Amandla Stenberg backed away from #BlackPant to leave space for darker-skinned actors: "I recognize 100 percent that there are spaces that l should not take up." @amandlastenberg we see you 👏🏾👏🏿👏🏼👏🏽 . . Excerpt from article by Vanity Fair: “One of the most challenging things for me to do was to walk away from Black Panther,” Stenberg, who uses “they-them” pronouns, revealed. “I got really, really close and they were like, ‘Do you want to continue fighting for this?’ And I was like, this isn’t right.” . . In the film, Shuri is T’Challa’s genius little sister, the teen whiz who keeps Wakanda so technologically advanced. Like the rest of the principal cast, Letitia Wright is a dark-skinned black actor. Stenberg, who is bi-racial, said they wouldn’t have been a natural fit for the film. . . “These are all dark-skinned actors playing Africans, and I feel like it would have just been off to see me as a bi-racial American with a Nigerian accent just pretending that I’m the same color as everyone else in the movie,” Stenberg said. “That was really challenging, to make that decision, but I have no regrets. I recognize 100 percent that there are spaces that I should not take up and when I do take up a space it’s because I’ve thought really, really critically about it and I’ve consulted people I really trust and it feels right.” . . blackpanther wakanda representation wakandaforever
