MAKING ROOM FOR BLACK LEADERS IN TECHNOLOGY
The leader of the tech world is Princess Shuri! Well, at least in Wakanda she is…If you haven’t basked in the glory of Black Panther , this is a major spoiler alert, but the film is a huge step in the right direction for a conversation about black people in tech. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, black people make up for less than 5% of employees at the executive level in the tech industry. While diversity and inclusion is a layered conversation, we’ll be creating real opportunities for innovators to connect at TechConneXt this year in the Bay Area.

Three black teens are finalists in a NASA competition. Hackers spewing racism tried to ruin their odds.

The three D.C. students couldn’t believe the news. They’d developed a method to purify lead-contaminated water in school drinking fountains, and NASA announced last month that they were finalists in the agency’s prestigious high school competition — the only all-black, female team to make it that far.

“Hidden figures in the making,” one of the teens wrote in a celebratory text message to her teammates and coaches, a reference to the 2016 movie about the true story of three African American women who worked for NASA in the 1960s.

The next stage of the science competition included public voting, and the Banneker High School students — Mikayla Sharrieff, India Skinner and Bria Snell, all 17-year-old high school juniors — turned to social media to promote their project.

But while the teens were gaining traction on social media and racking up votes, users on 4chan — an anonymous Internet forum where users are known to push hoaxes and spew racist and homophobic comments — were trying to ensure the students wouldn’t win.

The anonymous posters used racial epithets, argued that the students’ project did not deserve to be a finalist and said that the black community was voting for the teens only because of their race. They urged people to vote against the Banneker trio, and one user offered to put the topic on an Internet thread about President Trump to garner more attention. They recommended computer programs that would hack the voting system to give a team of teenage boys a boost.

NASA said in a statement that voting was compromised, prompting it to shut down public voting earlier than expected. The federal space agency said it encourages the use of social media to build support for projects but wrote in a statement Tuesday that public voting was ended because people “attempted to change the vote totals.”
