Dexter Thomas

The LA Times is making headlines for hiring a reporter to cover the influential social media collective known as Black Twitter.

You know you've arrived when a major newspaper outlet hires a singular reporter solely to cover the rantings and ratchet musings of a minority group on social media.

The irony in all this is there are more black people active on Instagram.com than on Twitter.com.

The LA Times memo reads:

Dexter Thomas joins us today to cover Black Twitter (which really is so much more complicated than that). He will work closely with the newsroom and #EmergingUS to find communities online (Black Medium to Latino Tumblr to Line in Japan) and both create stories with and pull stories from those worlds. Dexter is from San Bernardino and is a doctoral candidate in East Asian studies at Cornell University. He has taught media studies and Japanese and is writing a book about Japanese hip-hop. He began working in digital media at UC Riverside as a student director of programming at KUCR-FM (88.3), independently producing podcasts, music and news programs. He writes regularly on social justice, Internet and youth culture, and video games.

The Huffington Post weighed in with a long, rambling post on why Dexter's hiring might not be a good thing. The HuffPo's reporter, who is black, suggested that the LA Times hired a Black Twitter reporter for clicks and page views.

Despite the potential good Thomas' presence has in the LA Times newsroom, there are ethical questions surrounding a major publication acting as a gatekeeper for what is newsworthy in and from the black community. This doesn't mean publications like the LA Times have bad intentions. In fact, it most likely to the contrary. But this hire could be an unintended furthering of a capitalistic relationship between black culture and mainstream interests, as journalism's new business model turns site visits and views to dollars and cents.

      Oh ok. That's cute. Interesting. Wonder if they will credit the people or just act like they said it ? Anywhoo sky about to fall in here. Got stuff to do ? I will try to catch up with ya'll mañana

    • Sassy

      Yeah they tryna capitalize off E turning IG Rich Kids into a hit

    • Chitsngiggles

      He's a spy. I don't trust this not one bit.

    • Sassy

      See this is just promoting the coonery imagery and negative stereotypes of black folk. Black Twitter is ratchet enough, so half them fools really gonna be acting a fool cause its gonna be broadcasted on major news publication and not just the blogs. Nice distraction yt America

    • Chitsngiggles

      Twitter is blah to me these days. I'm rarely even on there anymore.

    • Chitsngiggles

      Its a set up. We always fall for it.

    • Femme404

      Not good. Black Twitter is funny but irrational.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      They always find a way to misappropriate black culture to benefit financially. Does the LA Times have a reporter to cover Hispanic Twitter, Asian Twitter or Gay Twitter?

    • KDub

      This is not new. Newspapers have been covering urban items for a very long time. Used to be called the race beat. Back in the day, a white journalism student fresh out of college. Not that any coloreds trusted them enough and TOLD them chit when they went out to cover a story. Don't mean they didn't exist tho.

    • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

      Black twitters is one of the community's strongest forces, Hastag that?? Hate it, love it...We flipped it on em?? Much like making a meal out of pig intestines, we make due with what we have?? Without Black twitter, we would not have known of Trayvon Martin? Hashtag that?? From sending dîck pics via DM, to forcing trends on CNN, we did that?? flipped it on em. Like a versital Tranny-owwww?? Be mad at the hashtag, but also beware!?????? Now...For these folks to need to hire a Black to try n monitor and comprehend the Blacks,,,Tiz a dif story altogether...But uh, yeah????

    • L.T.L. Since 2007

      I was never really on Twitter that much, I guess cause I couldn't get no follows. So I just eased on off'n that bytch.

    • Femme404

      I don't see the point of Twitter if you aren't a celebrity.

    • Sassy

      No cause the other ethnicities would not put up with it. Only black folks allow others to capitalize off them and then complain after that they are being portrayed negatively but continue to allow these folks to get the content they need to make them look bad while getting rich

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      I agree. I see nothing newsworthy about Black Twitter's rants. I guess memes are newsworthy.

      Hey Chiby

    • Chitsngiggles

      But this what I was trying to say yester.....nevermind....

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      I like that word. I think biracial and mixed race people should make "coloreds" a thing again.

    • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    • L.T.L. Since 2007

      So you saying.....

    • Chitsngiggles

      We big dummies! Yes! Why yes we are!

    • WeAsACultureMustDoBetter

      That's why we need to capitalize off of them wanting to be more involved or nosey should I say. We are strong if we worked together we would be a force to be reckoned with. More love less hate. I love my people but we must do better!!

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      So true. I notice the LA Times didn't announce the reporter's hiring publicly. They know what they're doing is wrong and racially divisive.

      ????????

    • KDub

      I was bring facetious. But hey...you like what you like

    • Chitsngiggles

      Nope...cause we too busy trying to be inclusive. "We are the world, we are the children" fug outta here with that bullshyt

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      The extent of Black Twitter's influence is evident in their memes. That's about it. I certainly don't check Black Twitter for the news of the day.

    • KDub

      I been hushing like a summabish!!! I suspected it was her days ago.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Are you sure that's Chiby? Let me know before I hit the ban button.

    • L.T.L. Since 2007

      Ooops....

    • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

      Yeah it makes my head hurt :-(

    • KDub

      We get our news different in 2015. This is nothing different from Ebony or Jet getting news from in communities in the 40's. Or all of the small local black papers. Ours is still around. The Carolinian. They have to have someone posted on Twitter everyday vs the local barbershop.

    • Femme404

      *shock* Ban? Who is Chiby???

    • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

      Lmao

    • Chitsngiggles

    • Readytochokemothernatureonout

      I used to be on Twitter faithfully when it first started, now award shows are all I tweet for. It's like one big funny family reunion then.

    • BRING THE PAYNE

      outside of this BLOG,I'm a ghost in cyber world.I am not comfortable with what's going on it.I enjoy speaking,and hearing others.once I'm done here I don't lend myself to twitter BLACK or whyt and Instagram and things of the like holds absolutely no attraction for me personally. I open my world when and how I CHOOSE to.when I don't wish to be on the grid cyber wise.then for the most I simply go into lurk mode here.

    • Readytochokemothernatureonout

      I can't tell she can tell. I've been lurking QUIRET for eons.

    • L.T.L. Since 2007

    • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

      She is definitely dedicated determined and dependable

    • Femme404

    • Femme404

      That sounds like a lie...

    • Femme404

      ...and you did it when Sandra was in here bahaha!

    • Chitsngiggles

      Although I bet money, its a lot of old Roses who have posted. The format allows this.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      I'm not on Black Instagram at all. I also find it extremely boring. I can do without Black IG news if the news of the day is draya and that fool who keeps taking her back.

    • Chitsngiggles

      Why else would a person get a log in. To comment. Its really not that deep sis. Its a blog where people chit and giggle.

    • Noirluv45

      There's always too much delving into what Black people do and think. Trust me, nothing good can come from this. I don't trust the White media.

    • Femme404

      To vent? Air out grievances? Frustrations?

      Look, I have no skin this game. Whether you stay or go is fine with me.

      Yeah, but they don't know that. They probably think Black folks have some secret circle, and with all this police brutality and harassment, they want to spy. You know they've always been afraid of a Black uprising.

      Your stepmom is so right. Even White folks are lecturing about us being the original Hebrews (I'm not saying that because we need their validation, but because people are waking up to the truth regardless of race). Not only do I wish we knew our whole history, but realize that so much of it has been erased or rewritten. Someone recommended these websites to me: Ancient African History Kings of Kush, Ancient Egypt, The Black Pharaohs, When the Moors Ruled Europe, and books, "They Came Before Columbus," and "The African Origin of Civilization."

      That is different from having sex with a person who is sleep. A lot of men think it's their right and a lot of women allow them to. I do not want to wake up to somebody having sex with me. But like I said, it's common.??

      Depends on what the topic of the day is I guess..... *shrugs* I've seen plenty of regular people be topics of the day. It only last for a few hours. Then they move on to more important issues. People's attention spans are short these days.

      So glad I'm not on Social Media, but I will be starting a business soon, so at some point I will reluctantly have to get on. Maybe I can hire someone to tweet, facebook etc.... for me.

      Did you feel violated? Are you still with this woman? Does she do it all the time?

      Black twitter will shut ish down. I already know if I were to ever become famous, do not piss off black twitter. They've shut down brands, gotten folks fired, made others see their relationship has run it course, etc. No ma'am. Note to self: send gift basket to black twitter.

    • don juan

      Yet Twitter will NOT hire Blacks, there are no Blacks sitting on the Board of Directors and Twitters Executive team members are emphatic about that not changing. Black people should pull out of Twitter but they won't. Yet another company winning off the backs of Black people and giving nothing in return.

      Hollup. So this guy is fully immersed in writing about and studying Japanese and East Asian culture but they hired him for this? Shiiid even Rachel Dolezal was more qualified - at least on paper?. IJS. They're probably trying to figure out how to monetize Black Twitter.

      Perhaps there's some good in all this. For someone who likes to write and has had an interest in Blogging should consider creating content around issues that have become popular hashtags.

      You set the narrative as opposed to someone else.

      The days of having that one singular voice in the Black community is over!
