    Content: In <em class="albert-highlight">Algorithms</em> <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> <em class="albert-highlight">Oppression</em>, Safiya Umoja Noble challenges the idea that search engines like Google offer an equal playing field for all forms <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> ideas, identities, and activities. Data discrimination is a real social problem; Noble argues that the combination <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> private interests in promoting certain sites, along with the monopoly status <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> a relatively small number <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> Internet search engines, leads to a biased set <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> search <em class="albert-highlight">algorithms</em> that privilege whiteness and discriminate against people <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> color, specifically women <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> color. Through an analysis <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> textual and media searches as well as extensive research on paid online advertising, Noble exposes a culture <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> racism and sexism in the way discoverability is created online. As search engines and their related companies grow in importance—operating as a source for email, a major vehicle for primary and secondary school learning, and beyond—understanding and reversing these disquieting trends and discriminatory practices is <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> utmost importance. An original, surprising and, at times, disturbing account <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> bias on the internet, <em class="albert-highlight">Algorithms</em> <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> <em class="albert-highlight">Oppression</em> contributes to our understanding <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> how racism is created, maintained, and disseminated in the 21st century.
