    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.

    Content: A revealing look at how negative biases against women <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> color are embedded in search engine results and <em class="albert-highlight">algorithms</em> Run a Google search for "black girls"—what will you find? "Big Booty" and other sexually explicit terms are likely to come up as top search terms. But, if you type in "white girls," the results are radically different. The suggested porn sites and un-moderated discussions about "why black women are so sassy" or "why black women are so angry" presents a disturbing portrait <em class="albert-highlight">of</em> black womanhood in modern society.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.
