Given Dr. Gilliard’s areas of expertise in areas like institutional tech policy, digital redlining, re-inventions of discriminatory practices through data mining and algorithmic decision-making, etc. I highly doubt it’s a simple explanation.

If we discuss it further, I recommend you do it on a separate thread so as not to continue @’ing him in our little canoe.
