MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace slams Chris Christie to his face for 'trying to clean the Trump stink off'

MSNBC

On Tuesday's edition of MSNBC's "Deadline: White House," anchor Nicolle Wallace took former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) to task for the GOP's enabling of Trump's attacks on science and democracy.

"I think people like Dr. Fauci ... were undermined by Donald Trump every step of the way," said Wallace. "And speaking of Donald Trump, I want to ask you about his conduct, not just over the last four years but over the last 40 days. Why aren't there more Republicans screaming at the top of their lungs that he's doing damage to our democracy?"

Imagine you've forgotten once again the difference between a gorilla and a chimpanzee, so you do a quick Google image search of “gorilla." But instead of finding images of adorable animals, photos of a Black couple pop up.

Is this just a glitch in the algorithm? Or, is Google an ad company, not an information company, that's replicating the discrimination of the world it operates in? How can this discrimination be addressed and who is accountable for it?

“These platforms are encoded with racism," says UCLA professor and best-selling author of Algorithms of Oppression, Dr. Safiya Noble. “The logic is racist and sexist because it would allow for these kinds of false, misleading, kinds of results to come to the fore…There are unfortunately thousands of examples now of harm that comes from algorithmic discrimination."

On At Liberty this week, Dr. Noble joined us to discuss what she calls “algorithmic oppression," and what needs to be done to end this kind of bias and dismantle systemic racism in software, predictive analytics, search platforms, surveillance systems, and other technologies.
