Dr. Safiya Umoja Noble joined us again to discuss how her work on the political economy of the internet is playing out in current media coverage of the deaths of Black people. Money and audience are generated for a variety of media and their political and commercial sponsors but little is said of the trauma and political stagnation imposed upon affected Black communities, audiences and activists.

I absolutely agree! Social media doubles down on the effect, and bombards us in real time. With images and narrative fom people with both noble and nefarious motives, that only further polarise people, with no fertile middle ground in which any solutions around constructive debate/ideas can thrive.

At the same time, you have IG bombarding impressionable young black people with images and narrative from millionaire artists, living in mansions in the suburbs, promoting the very kind of behaviour that has young black men, women and children, killing each other, and innocent people on inner city streets while parroting the behaviour on the same platform?

In my humble opinion. It's not a color we're up against, it's an entity. With many heads, and tentacles.
