    Distributed Blackness: African American Cybercultures (Critical Cultural Communication, 9) (2020)

    An explanation of the digital practices of the black Internet

    From BlackPlanet to #BlackGirlMagic, Distributed Blackness places blackness at the very center of internet culture. André Brock Jr. claims issues of race and ethnicity as inextricable from and formative of contemporary digital culture in the United States. Distributed Blackness analyzes a host of platforms and practices (from Black Twitter to Instagram, YouTube, and app development) to trace how digital media have reconfigured the meanings and performances of African American identity. Brock moves beyond widely circulated deficit models of respectability, bringing together discourse analysis with a close reading of technological interfaces to develop nuanced arguments about how “blackness” gets worked out in various technological domains.

    As Brock demonstrates, there’s nothing niche or subcultural about expressions of blackness on social media: internet use and practice now set the terms for what constitutes normative participation. Drawing on critical race theory, linguistics, rhetoric, information studies, and science and technology studies, Brock tabs between black-dominated technologies, websites, and social media to build a set of black beliefs about technology. In explaining black relationships with and alongside technology, Brock centers the unique joy and sense of community in being black online now.

    As close as you will ever be to a nuclear explosion




    No thank you.


    The columns of smoke in the foreground are telephone poles boiling


    This is way cooler to look at than it should be


    Science side of Tumblr would like to add:

    Heat is generally transmitted in 3 forms: conduction, convection, radiation.

    The fact that the telephone poles and wires are boiling away well before the shockwave hits them indicates that the heat from the explosion has not reached them by convection (much slower than the speed of sound) or by conduction (at best, comparable to the speed of sound), but purely by radiation. In other words: the explosion is bright enough to boil everything.

    He’s gonna do what he’s gotta do. There are hostages. I know that. My best friend is one of them. If we can get out of here, and find this guy’s wife, we can show that the kidnapping thing holds water. Just once, can you grab life by the little Lassiters and follow your instincts? I know you don’t like my methods. I know you don’t like me! But we are pressed for time and I am telling you, I am vibing like crazy! Can we screw protocol and get the hell out of here?
