Since Edward Snowden disclosed private National Security Agency documents to media outlets last year, President Barack Obama urged Americans that he will take issues of privacy in to account and announced a ban on the surveillance of leaders. While some Americans may be caught up in the idea that our privacy is being invaded, it’s found that most African Americans are not.

In a panel discussion on “NewsOne Now,” Aisha Moodie-Mills, Danielle Moodie-Mills, and Kevin Martin explained why we are not as concerned as everyone else when it comes to privacy. “People want to be safe, but people also want convenience,” said Aisha. “What we’re talking about is the idea of Big Brother. Big Brother is in your house doing whatever you do. The truth is we want the convenience that allows Big Brother to come in to our house.”

Danielle added, “Post 9/11, safety trumps our freedom, and at the end of the day, you ask anybody and they say, ‘[Surveillance is] not that big of a deal to me.'”
