University: Putting a Wedding Picture Behind You On A Zoom Call Makes You a Bigot

It’s clear the coronavirus, the catalyst for the shift to online meetings, hasn’t dampened universities’ resolve to push political correctness and identity politics.

Professors Amy Bonomi and Nelia Viveiros, the co-authors of the article, view virtual meetings on platforms such as Zoom as another domain for “language, symbolism and nonverbal cues that reinforce normative social identities with respect to gender, race, sexual preference and socioeconomic status” to metastasize, a priority woefully out of touch with the struggles faced by many American workers and businesses in light of coronavirus.

“Without paying attention to how unconscious bias and how dominant paradigms get reinforced, we risk unintentionally alienating and potentially harming minoritized people,” Bonomi frets.

Even something as banal as an icebreaker could “be a pathway for reinforcing dominant social norms and identities.”
