@blake not disagreeing, but why?

@blake I feel the same way. It reminds me of the app they built/used for Georgetown (in DC) neighborhood watch to announce suspicious persons which it ended being all black men. It became very racist very quickly. I'm sure the developer means well, but this has the potential of being discriminatory.

@troy_ruediger places that are considered "shady" = places white people feel unsafe in = places primarily inhabited by low-income people of color

@maxwellhallel that was understood, I guess my point was to elaborate.

lol I live in a red zone and walk around the area at all hours. Guess this is for suburb people that are afraid of everybody. edit: wow this is for rerouting driving directions? like you're so afraid that you can't even drive through downtown Dallas? hahaha

Given the brouhaha over SketchFactor two years ago (see Gothamist story "Tone-deaf App Helps Naive Travelers Avoid 'Sketchy' Neighborhoods") I wonder if / how this is different?

I'm not a lover of this because it's segmenting areas of towns that more than likely have great things to offer, but don't get the chance... But at least, there will be no more issues like this:

the ‹shady› parts are most of the time the interesting parts 😉
