Rayshard Brooks told police Natalie White was his girlfriend. Now, a woman with same name is wanted for burning a Wendy’s ~ “Mrs. Dora Stainers, 562 1/2 Decatur St. 39 years old. Began spinning in an Atlanta mill at 7 years, and is in this mill work for 32 years. Only 4 days of schooling in her life. Began at 20 cents a day. The most she ever made was $1.75 a day & now she is earning $1 a day when she works.” The photograph was taken in March 1915. ~ Wrongfully Arrested Because Face Recognition Can’t Tell Black People Apart That headline is a bit much. I can accept that problems exist with the technology, and police use of it. However, to go directly to “Can’t Tell Black People Apart” is a stretch. It is also inflammatory, and might increase racial tensions … at a time when race tensions are already bubbling over. How is Face Recognition Surveillance Technology Racist? I don’t think it is inflammatory to say something that is factually accurate and that highlights another example of systemic racism. … Lets put it this way. If you were defending a system in court, and the opposing attorney said “This technology cannot tell black people apart”, would you object? …There is also the matter of how you package the headline. The youtube headline said “Wrongfully Arrested Because of Flawed Face Recognition Technology.” That is fine. Whereas, the ACLU article headline said “Wrongfully Arrested Because Face Recognition Can’t Tell Black People Apart.” Same message, but the latter will inflame emotions much more than the former. There is so much tension right now. We should be careful how we say things. ~ University Avenue cleared of barricades near property where Rayshard Brooks was killed ~ The Civil War, there’s a great compromise, as it’s called. It consists of Southerners admitting freely that it’s probably best that the Union wasn’t divided, and the North admits rather freely that the South fought bravely for a cause in which it believed. ~ 1 Copy wikiquotes page of reputed source into word document 2 CNTL + F, search for a word in quote 3 If you cannot match that word to quote, try another word 4 If the quote is not in WQ, it might be not be legitimate. WQ is not definitive, but a good place to start. ~ @chakrabsumita Some folks who I believe are well-meaning are saying that the Michael Dickman poem in @poetrymagazine Poetry critiques whiteness. I strongly disagree, and I would like to tell you why via my only skill: close reading! In This Essay I Will; Or, God Help Me, It’s Thread O’Clock ~ To Our Readers Regarding “Scholls Ferry Rd.” by Michael Dickman ~ Scholls Ferry Rd. ~ @chamblee54 Is the poem even available online? Yes denounce it all you like, but let me read it for myself. I do not want to buy a print edition to do so. What privilege! ~ @chamblee54 Putting out a thread like this, without a link to the poem, is rude. The link should be in the initial tweet, so we can read it for ourselves ~ @chamblee54 You should copy this thread into an essay, post it in the comment section of the print edition, and delete the twitter thread. If you continue to post your commentary on twitter, you should make “Scholls Ferry Rd.” available online. 1/2 … If you want the greater viability of an online commentary, then it should be accompanied by access to the source material. 2/2 ~ Scholls Ferry Rd. ~ pictures for this constipated collection today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah
