Embedded racism in code refers to the use of racial slurs or biased language in the programming of a computer system or application. This type of racism can manifest in a variety of ways, such as the use of derogatory terms in variable names or comments, the exclusion of diverse groups in the design or testing process, or the perpetuation of harmful stereotypes through the functionality of the system.

Using racist language or perpetuating harmful stereotypes in code can have serious consequences, as it can lead to the amplification and normalization of discrimination and prejudice. It is important for programmers to be mindful of the language and practices they use when coding, and to work towards creating inclusive and fair systems.
