Intersectionality and Racism
What is intersectionality? And why is it important when we are discussing killer robots and racism? With historical and theoretical roots in Black feminism and women of colour activism, intersectionality is a concept that acknowledges all forms of oppression such as ableism, classism, misogyny, and racism; and examines how these oppressions operate in combination.
When we apply biased A.I. to killer robots we can see how long-standing inherent biases pose an ethical and human rights threat, where some groups of people will be vastly more vulnerable than others.
