Would love to suggest a book to open eyes, as mine were opened. Read, The Wheat Money, by Kristl Tyler. I thought that as a 58 year old woman, I knew something about racism through power, but this book opened my eyes to things good and bad, including the stories about domestics during the 1940's and 50's.

This episode is especially interesting to me because this is the first time Black Mirror has acknowledged racism at all in its many technological dystopias. The rest of its episodes suffer from colorblind plotting, as if tech has the same effect on people of all racialized/national backgrounds. Racism never comes up Read more

I feel you didn’t give the show it’s fair justice: in the end, the perpetrator of the atrocities suffered the same fate as his victim. That should have been stated after the “Always suffering” comment, to allow the reader to know the show wasn’t glorifying the actions but was in fact showing the inhumanity of it. The Read more
