There is no question that there is racist or problematic information easily accessible on the internet. But is the internet itself biased? To answer this question, I think it is important to think first, about who the system was designed for, and why. Originally, the world wide web was designed to consolidate all of the worlds information, to eventually benefit all people, but would primarily benefit those who could even access it. These people were the wealthiest members of the world who could afford or at least access computers. The next thing to consider is how is the information searched for organized? Generally speaking, search engines organize results by popularity. Therefore, what you will see in search engines like google, will be representative of the majority, not the minority. This means that specific smaller communities might have a harder time than members of a white community, finding information specifically pertinent to them. However, I would argue that the internet is becoming less and less biased as it is becoming more and more specific. Because of the efforts of advertisers to remain significant and a part of the lives of the people who make up their market, we have seen a larger effort to personalize the internet to the individual. Search results and ads are tailored to your searches and interests. With these new advancements we notice less and less bias on the basis of race or popularity, because now, companies don’t care about the masses, they care about you.
