Be Brave and Make the Change

The tech tyrants are at it again, this time for allegedly racist employment practices. It's time to make a change.

Be Brave and Make the Change

The more we learn about the tyranny of big tech the more concerned we should be.

It's not enough to simply be aware of how they are censoring what we see and do on the Internet, they are shaping almost every aspect of our digital world.

We are now seeing their censorship offline too.

There are reports of employment discrimination by the company behind the Duck Duck Go browser.

According to one coder who applied for work there he was initially rejected. He then applied as a 'black lesbian' with lesser qualifications and got through to a second round of interviews.

Here is what he put online.

Now, we can never be 100% positive that this information is correct but the documentation certainly supports the allegations.

If it is true, it exposes just how pernicious this discrimination is. You can be overlooked simply because you are a white male.

What message does that give to our sons?

I previously changed my search engine to Duck Duck Go to be free of Google's privacy invasion but there is no way I will support them now.

That's why I have changed to Brave Search and enabled it as the default search engine in my preferred Internet browser (Chrome).

Brave Search is focused on privacy and doesn't track your search results.

Here's a video of how to make the change although I think it is in a language other than English! I couldn't understand a word of it but the visuals help.

If you need a written translation here are the steps.

Step 1: Open Chrome and right-click anywhere in the address bar and click on Manage search engines.

Step 2: On the manage search engine page click Add.

Step 3: A pop-up box will appear. You have to enter the details like the image below.

In the first box enter Brave Search. In the second box enter and in the third box enter and then click Save

Step 4: Once you will click Save you will see Brave Search in 'other search engines'. On the right side of the Brave search click on three dots.

Step 5: Click on 'make default' and Brave Search is set as your default search engine in Chrome.
