I adapted a class presentation to make this ‘video blog’ about cybertypes and how they affect politics and daily life. This is based on Lisa Nakamura’s book “Cybertypes: Race, Ethnicity, and Identity on the Internet” and current events affecting minorities such as immigration policy, police brutality, and the Black Lives Matter movement. In this day and age, it’s especially important to analyze online media and how they impact our daily lives since the two are becoming evermore intertwined. With the growth of social media in an increasingly hostile political environment, understanding the impact of these pervasive cybertypes is especially crucial.
