  • Oslo is a plan for autonomy under occupation. It allowed Arafat and the PA to rule while under house arrest.

    So not only does it have the same terms of an 1800s treaty with Native Americans, but has a similar track record of being honored.

    Oh and don’t forget, that even these meager terms were too much for the hard-core Zionists to accept so they killed their own Prime Minister over it.




  • The article is not about how the AI is responsible for the death. It’s likely that the woman would have died in the counterfactual.

    The question is not “how effective is AI”? The question is should life or death decisions be made by an electrified Oracle at Delphi. You must answer this question before “is AI effective” becomes relevant.

    If somebody was adjudicating traffic court with Tarot cards, would you ask: well how accurate are the cards compared to a judge?















  • A little bit about Aunt Jemima for non-Americans:

    The image of Jemima isn’t bad because it depicts a racial stereotype. Or not just that. The image of the Black domestic is a symbol of wealth and power. It’s meant to inspire a sense of nostalgia for the times when children were raised and food was served with black hands.

    The image of the black domestic was as wide-spread, public domain, and as common as images of Uncle Sam or George Washington. It’s a cultural touchstone, and just like the Rebel Flag, that it might make people uncomfortable is half the point.

    Aunt Jemima gets at the heart of race relations in the United States. She’s a caricature of blackness, created by white people, for other white people, that somehow every black American has to confront, even if only to rebel against it. Because once something has become a powerful cultural image of what you are, to most people, and maybe to yourself, you’re defined by the stereotype, even if it’s only in how far you deviate from it.
