As mobile technology plays a larger role in everyday life, web applications have adapted. As such one can tweet from their mobile device from anywhere, and say anything. As such the attacks on black and brown children that were once reserved for snide commentary behind backs have gained a permanent place in modern culture, e.g. Twitter and Facebook comments about Quavanzhane Wallis, Trayvon Martin and the Hunger Games movie.
Moderator: Maria Williams-Hawkins, Ball State University
