Community Defense: Sarah T. Hamid on Abolishing Carceral Technologies
"We organize against carceral institutions, actors, and systems—not surveillance. The focus on "surveillance" has a depoliticizing effect on the work we do. Organizers campaigning against carceral technologies are not organizing against "intense creepiness." They are organizing against a category of violence—legally sanctioned violence by the carceral state—that has a long history of racialized surveillance, and a short history of digital surveillance."
Hey, look at this thing my friend Mint wrote on why he left.
You'll probably make fun of it like you do with the daily dot article.
But maybe you'll read it and... think? Reflect? Change?
image description stuff, question?
I don't want to make any claims about accessibility, because i don't use a screen reader or anything, but i've seen a few times now an where an image originally doesn't have a description, and then someone else just reposts it with a description. this seems bad to me, because now the original post doesn't have a description attached at all (compared to a reply with one), so it's like half as likely to be completely useless since someone has say a 50% chance of being able to get an image description instead of somewhere closer to 100%. Is this intuition correct or no?
