Warm Up 10/27

Programmers

Demographics:

first five: white males in their 20-30’s

10: first picture is women, the rest are all white middle-aged men

15: computers and white guys

20: out of all four pictures there is one black guy but the rest are white middle-aged men

25: all middle aged white guys

30: young white guys

Analyze:

There really is no second category, the main category is 20-something to fifty-something white males in front of a computer screen. In the first 30 pictures, there was only one woman, who was white and one middle-aged black male.  

Reflect:

This means that the most common result for a “programmer” is a middle-aged white male. The findings reveal that the bias towards programmers is for them to be white men, with the exception of only two differences within the first thirty: one woman and one black male.
