If you're Black in America, your iPhone could bring you justice

Black Americans are far more likely to be stopped and arrested by Police, and as we've seen, these interactions can go wrong. There's now a Siri shortcut, put together by Robert Peterson, which will start recording on your iPhone by simply saying a phrase: "Hey Siri, I'm being pulled over". It will dim your phone's display, stop any music that's playing and start recording on the front facing camera. It can also send your current location to a contact along with a message.

President Trump's social media is again being flagged 

Twitter has labeled one of his tweets as containing 'manipulated media'. And for the first time Facebook has pulled Trump content. Ads for Trump's re-election have been removed as Facebook says they contain a hate group's symbol - an upside down red triangle once used by Nazis in concentration camps to identify political prisoners. Unless content incites hate or suppresses voter registration of turnout, then Facebook says it won't factcheck or remove content.
