article written by Wail Qasim an activist, writer and critic living in London on November 12, 2016 for Independent, which was titled “Yes, Barack Obama was the first black president – but he didn't improve the lives of black Americans”. That title displayed racial and ethical bias as it could be perceived that President Obama made life easier for a certain race and did nothing for African Americans. That is a racial and disrespectful comment as President Obama did not campaign for office to help any particular race or individuals, but he did so to help the country asa whole. Biased language in computer-mediated contexts is the use of and electronic instrument to communicate with someone else. Often individuals sit behind their devices and make whatever comment(s) without regard for the person on the other end. The feel that because they will never face the person on the other end they can be as daring as they please. It is in essence a for of cyber bullying. References:Bevan, J. L. (2020).
