Apps like Neighbors and Amazon Ring digitize racial bias and profiling to further fuel the high-tech policing of Black and brown communities.

“These apps are dangerous because they not only reflect people’s biases about marginalized people, but these apps legitimize that bias as an effective guide for addressing crime. We know, given the murder of Trayvon Martin, that this bias can have life-threatening consequences for Black and brown people who may be passing through your neighborhood.”
