This talk traces the history of women of color's participation in online gaming forums, anti-racist social media posts, and Zoom meetings as examples of community defense. Black and Latinx female Xbox players who engage in "resistance griefing," to use game scholar Kishonna Gray's formulation, Generation Z women who post video documentation of their encounters with racism and xenophobia in public places, and women of color resisting racist zoombombing share an understanding of their efforts as digital diversity work. This talk argues that women of color online were engaging in community defense models as alternatives to traditional policing and the carceral state years before the mainstream left in the U.S. deployed them as part of a populist politics.
