Tesla must pay $137 million in discrimination lawsuit...
1 week ago
Tesla has been ordered to pay $137 million in damages to a former Black worker who accused the company of turning a blind eye to discrimination and racial abuse at the company's EV plant in Fremont California, the Washington Post has reported. A San Francisco federal court jury awarded the judgement — reportedly one of the largest in an individual race discrimination employment case — to Owen Diaz, an elevator operator who worked as a contract employee in 2015 and 2016.In the lawsuit, Diaz alleged that he faced discrimination "straight from the Jim Crow era," in which he was subjected to racial slurs. He alleged that Tesla employees left drawings of swastikas, racist graffiti and offensive cartoons around the plant, while supervisors neglected to halt the abuse. "Tesla's progressive image was a façade papering over its regressive, demeaning treatment of African-American employees," according to the lawsuit. The jury awarded Diaz $6.9 million for emotional distress, but the majority, $130 million, was punitive damages against Tesla. "It's a great thing when one of the richest corporations in America has to have a reckoning of the abhorrent conditions at its factory for Black people," said the lawyer for Diaz, Lawrence Organ. "It took four long years to get to this point,” Diaz told the New York Times. “It’s like a big weight has been pulled off my shoulders.”In response to the verdict, Tesla downplayed the allegations in a blog post written by human resources VP Valerie Capers Workman. "In addition to Mr. Diaz, three other witnesses (all non-Tesla contract employees) testified at trial that they regularly heard racial slurs (including the N-word) on the Fremont factory floor,” she wrote. “While they all agreed that the use of the N-word was not appropriate in the workplace, they also agreed that most of the time they thought the language was used in a ‘friendly’ manner and usually by African-American colleagues.”Tesla added that it was responsive to Mr. Diaz's complaints, firing two contractors and suspending another. She said that while the facts didn't justify the verdict, the company was "not perfect" in 2015 and 2016, "but we have come a long way." The company has yet to say whether it plans to appeal.......

The weird world of anti-vax Etsy...
1 month ago
A few weeks back, my father-in-law was looking for a trespassing sign. Their house has a dock and people had snuck onto it at 1 a.m., clearly imbibing. Late night, no light, alcohol, and open water is never a good idea. He wasn't mad, but a sign to keep people safe seemed prudent.So we went to Etsy to find a sign. It seemed like the natural choice, since it's a site best known for crafts and customizable home products. But the oddest thing happened when you searched the word "trespassing" on Etsy, which feels like the natural place to look for that sort of thing. Lots of the signs high up in the search rankings were strange, word salad, anti-vax signs. They were impossible to ignore or miss. They were everywhere.Here's a sample of what we saw. Tweet may have been deleted A bit of background on me: I just got married, which means recently I've spent a significant amount of time trawling Etsy for wedding-related products. It's a relatively wholesome place on the internet, as far as places on the internet go. You're likely to find table centerpieces, hand-knit blankets, all sorts of acrylic crafts, candles — that sort of thing. It's the center of the crafting universe online. So it was whiplash-inducing to see a corner of Etsy so different than the wares of the Wedding Industrial Complex.It's not that Etsy's anti-vax problem is wildly awful — unfortunately anti-vax sentiments feel unavoidable online these days — it's that it's so...strange. And it's quite weird to get flooded with these results when searching things like "trespass." Etsy is a place you expect neutral, harmless home products and not get your vaccine out of my face nonsense. It's disorienting to come across these products so suddenly. Certain search terms will trigger anti-vax results. For instance, here were a few items that hit my results when I searched an obvious word: "vaccine." The QR code is a middle finger, in case you cannot tell. Credit: screenshot: etsy Searching for vaccine bumper stickers on Etsy gets you a similar mix of pro and anti messages. A weird array of vax bumper stickers on Etsy. Credit: screenshot: Etsy The items are odd and angry at no one in particular. The anti-vax sellers push items clearly couched in right-wing grievance culture. People who are afraid some scary, non-existent person from the government is going to come and force a jab in them. The customer base are the folks perennially whining about being treaded on by on thing or another. One seller of anti-vax items, for example, also sold decals about being put in Facebook jail and items that display remarks about the vaccine that are thinly veiled anti-trans commentary. "Repeat offender" is, apparently, a thing to be proud about. Credit: screenshot: etsy Or look at this seller below, which had a combo of anti-vax merch and items focusing on the Cleveland MLB team, which is changing its name to the Guardians because its mascot was offensive to Native Americans. Again: grievance culture. Yes, that is a Cuomo joke sticker. Credit: screenshot: Etsy The anti-vax items exist on Etsy for a simple reason: there's a market for them. Etsy functions as a platform for sellers, who get access to the site's customer base and tools for their products. Usually those products are things like wood working, candles, stenciling, and bath bombs. But selling online means scrapping to get sales and, despite the stunning evidence that vaccines are an amazingly good thing, there are customers who want signs to fend off imagined people who are going to make them get a life-saving shot. For instance, I DM'd one Etsy seller who sold an anti-vax sign that actually seemed entirely out of place in their shop, which was largely filled with table centerpieces, ornaments, and cake toppers. "Like 99% of my products they are a request from a customer that I create then list," the seller, whose Etsy page said they sold out of Phoenix, Arizona, told me over DM. "I do not put my personal feelings about politics into any of my creations. I do not state anywhere whether I am for the shot or not. This sign was created because I had received several requests to create it."The sign's listing had a little, automated "best seller" label on it. This seller saw demand and filled it. For better or worse."People exploit uncertainty," said Ari Lightman, a professor of digital media and marketing at the Heinz College at Carnegie Mellon University. "Where there's a mechanism [for] an economic gain...people will figure it out."The opening for anti-vax profit on Etsy is relatively small but still there. The anti-vaccine items on Etsy manage to just skirt by the rules laid out by the site. And Etsy spokesperson told Mashable that anti-vaccine items are banned by the company, under rules that prohibit harmful misinformation. But the trespassing signs, or middle-finger-not vaccinated decals, might not be banned because they aren't deemed to cause real-world harm. So if an item is anti-vax but doesn't spread misinformation about the vaccine, or actively tell people not to get vaccinated, then it seems likely to remain up on Etsy. It's an area open to interpretation. And, to be fair, it is unfortunately hard to imagine creating rules that would keep all anti-vax items off a site. A June poll found 13 percent of Americans would "definitely not" get the vaccine, despite more than 625,000 COVID deaths in the United States alone. Thirteen percent of U.S. adults is roughly 27 million people. That's a big customer base for online sellers to target. But it's also just niche enough to land buyers. There are so many candle sellers on Etsy that it would likely prove tough to cut through the competition. But you might stand out by selling an anti-vax sign.Etsy isn't alone. Zazzle, which lets you customize items, has anti-vax items as well. Or search for "vaccine merch" on Amazon and be greeted by a weird mix of t-shirts.The world of online anti-vax stuff is strange and vast. A small sample of anti-vax shirts on Zazzle. Credit: Screenshot: Zazzle Vaccine merch is strange on Amazon, too. Credit: screenshot: amazon But think of all the free marketing that's out there for anti-vax merch. Famous politicians and majors news channels are peddling vaccine hesitancy. That's effectively wrangling up customers for sellers make cheap anti-vax merch. "[The sellers] know the right sort of communication, they know the right messaging, they know the right slogans that will engage [customers], activate them and encourage them to pull out their checkbook," Lightman said. Sites like Amazon, Zazzle, and especially Etsy rely on sellers running their own shops. The site is just a platform, not the curator. That has always opened the door for less than stellar items being sold. I remember covering a 2019 story on a form of bleach being sold as a miracle cure for cancer and HIV — at the time, it was listed on Walmart's site from what appeared to be a third-party seller. We're all well aware of the issues platforms have — think of Facebook and disinformation, for instance. Etsy has that issue, too, if on a smaller and stranger scale. "This is a very nebulous domain," Lightman said. "If I market a bumper sticker that said, 'Stand up to your individual rights, choose not to be vaccinated.' Is that hate speech? Is that racially tinged? No, it's just opinionated."It all sounds an awful lot like the debates we have constantly about websites, but it's made far more strange by it being centered on a site at the center of the crafting universe.Think about how odd it is to get served a bunch of anti-vax items when you search for trespassing signs. The search had nothing to do with vaccines at all. The anti-vax signs were seemingly just very popular. It's a discomfiting creeping of the polarized political world into a relatively harmless world of home crafts — and it was entirely unavoidable, the search results reproduced by a few different folks that queried the same thing on Etsy.That said, it's not entirely shocking anti-vax merch its way to Etsy. If there is a dollar to be squeezed out of people, well, then someone is going to wring that buck out of folks. Even if its through selling truly weird yard signs warding off vaccine door knockers. The internet is nothing if not comprehensive, and I do not mean that as a compliment. Anyway, after some searching, my father-in-law finally got a sign kindly asking drunk people to stay off the dock. It doesn't say anything about vaccines.......

Instagram's new anti-hate feature lets you limit comments and requests on popular posts...
2 months ago
Instagram has introduced new features called Limits and Hidden Words designed to reduce hate and abuse on trending posts, the company announced. The update is designed to protect its users, particularly creators and public features, from seeing harassing, racist, homophobic and sexist content in comments and DM requests. The new Limits feature, available starting today, will allow all users to hide comments and DM requests from users who either don't follow them or only recently started following them. On top of that, the app will issue "an even stronger warning" and halt posting immediately if someone tries to publish an offensive content — rather than waiting for a repeat offense as before. "Creators also tell us they don’t want to switch off comments and messages completely; they still want to hear from their community and build those relationships," said Instagram head Adam Mosseri in a blog post. "Limits allows you to hear from your long-standing followers, while limiting contact from people who might only be coming to your account to target you." Instagram said that it developed the features following racist abuse directed at UK footballers in their direct messages. "Our research shows that a lot of negativity towards public figures comes from people who don’t actually follow them, or who have only recently followed them, and who simply pile on in the moment," said Mosseri. We saw this after the recent Euro 2020 final, which resulted in a significant — and unacceptable — spike in racist abuse towards players.The other new feature, Hidden Words, allows users to filter abusive messages in DM requests. If a request contains any filter word you've chosen, it's automatically placed in a hidden folder that you can choose to never open — though it's not completely deleted.The update, available starting today, arrives after Facebook announced that it would make Instagram safer and more private for teens. Changes introduced last month include automatically making accounts private for teens under 16, limiting the ability of advertisers to target personal information like "interests" and using AI to detect a users' age. The changes also come as Facebook explores creating a version of Instagram for kids under 13. While it's still in the early stages, the idea has drawn attention from Democratic lawmakers who've asked the company to detail exactly how it would work "given Facebook's past failures to protect children," they wrote. It is opposed by 44 state attorneys general, who wrote that "this is a dangerous idea that risks the safety of our children and puts them directly in harm’s way." ......
