It is not a special character, you fucking imperialist, it is my (first) last name.

"I notice that the people who are afraid of machine super-intelligence are almost exclusively white men. I don't think anxiety about AI is really about AI at all. I think it's some white men's displaced anxiety upon realizing that women and people of color have and have always had sentience, and are beginning to act on it on scales they're unprepared for.
