Quite. And this is the modern dominant form of racism. And pretty much every -ism.
People build saris because it doesn’t occur to them to consider those who can’t use them.
People color code things and provide no other distinguishing features because they don’t consider those who don’t see color the same as they do.
People post signs in one language because they don’t consider people that speak other languages, or can’t read them due to any of a variety of reasons.
People call one color “flesh tone” because they don’t consider people with other tones of flesh.
People demand photo ID with names that exactly match while at the same time create a society where 50% of the population is expected to change their name, and then the people that don’t have to change theirs get upset at those who do for not going through an extra effort they haven’t subjected themselves to.
It’s all tiny, cumulative acts and systems.
The idea of angry klan member who is consciously out to oppress dark skinned people is mostly just cartoon racism at this point. Like home invaders and strangers that will kidnap your kids or sexual assaulters who aren’t someone you already know.
The popular conception is of the easy to grasp, overt, transgressive barbarian, when the real danger is death by 10,000 paper cuts.
I think intent only matters in how you approach the person or people who were acting in a racist way.
People who are knowingly biased (regardless of reason) need to have the biases addressed, people who are unknowingly biased need to be shown how their actions have a deleterious effect regardless of intent.
Intent doesn’t matter to outcome in the same way that apologizing to a broken plate does not fix it.
“Racism” as an academic term of art doesn’t even require that belief of superiority, at least not at a conscious level.
Privileging dialects of English more commonly spoken by white people over dialects spoken more commonly by Black people doesn’t require any awareness that there even is a racial component, especially when due to kyriarchy such racial markers can be unconsciously replaced with the concordant economic markers. (I.e., you say that poverty is a result of ignorance, state that such a dialect is proof of that ignorance, and thus go on to act in a biased way against people of color because of the secondary association of speech pattern. This can allow someone to convince themselves they are not acting racist because their racist acts are ostensibly justified by some rational reason that just happens to have the same effect as “real” racism. )
The same with sexism not requiring explicit belief that any sex is superior, just acting in such a way as to privilege any sex over any other.
Racism is that which has racist outcomes. Intent is irrelevant.
Example, a facial recognition system that can’t recognize dark skinned people is racist. It doesn’t matter if it’s even capable of intent, it has a racist effect.
One such detrimental effect could be that a lookup system has false positives at a higher rate with dark skinned faces, causing more false arrests and imprisonments and convictions and sentencing. Again, no intent required or relevant in the slightest amount.
Racism is not about intent, let alone malice, it is about effect.
I feel like my enjoyment of this game has been retroactively reduced by sixteen and two-thirds percent.
What will fill the void in my life left by those missing 180 lines multiplied over the few hours I’ve played the game already?
I demand reparations from Ubisoft for this, the greatest of all human tragedies.
Famous for Helsinki Syndrome.
We don’t know that it isn’t.
Seagate’s SSHDs don’t require OS support, they use the SSD as a cache like the RAM on the disk, as basically a second level of cache. (Like a CPU l2 cache)
It does require some time to develop a profile of use, though, so the effects will vary with time as the drive learns and new data is added.
No. TRIM allows an OS to force the SSD to do that. The SSD’s firmware can do it on its own without any OS support.
So, no, that won’t actually happen, whether the PS4 supports it or not. The only potential issue is write amplification, but this can also be addressed by the firmware itself.
They did. You just have to click through to the source.
