Google Chrome Extension Replaces ‘Migrant,’ ‘Refugee’ with ‘Human’



        Google Chrome Extension Replaces ‘Migrant,’ ‘Refugee’ with ‘Human’

A non-profit social ad agency based out of Australia and New York recently created an extension for the Google Chrome browser that automatically replaces all instances of the words “migrant,” “refugee,” “asylum seeker,” and the like, with the word “human” in news stories from around the web.

The project, called “Rehumanize,” was meant to add a human element back into the stories of those fleeing persecution and danger in their home country that have dominated the latest news cycle. From the website:

It’s in your newsfeed, it’s in the news. Too often those fleeing disaster and despair are called “queue jumpers,” “boat people,” or worse… “illegals.” It’s easy to lose sight of their humanity.

This simple Chrome extension replaces these words and brings in a little more dignity. Let’s call them humans.

Quartz p rovided some examples of what the extension does:

Here’s Why So Many of Europe’s Migrants Have Their Hearts Set on Germany
The country has long been the most receptive in Europe to refugees.

Here’s Why So Many of Europe’s Humans Have Their Hearts Set on Germany

Migrant Crisis: Germany ‘Can Take 500,000 Asylum Seekers A Year’

Human Crisis: Germany ‘Can Take 500,000 Humans A Year’

Boat People, Then and Now

Humans, Then and Now

The agency’s executive director Murray Bunton told < em>Quartz t hat it was expressions like “boat people” or “queue jumpers,” often used in Australia, that were the real targets of this project more so than “migrant” or “refugee,” terms that at least accurately describe what is happening. But to make the full point, all possible terms were thrown into the mix.

“We waned to make a statement,” Bunton said. “We have this notion in Australia that they are illegal. But we forget how much this country has been built by migrants, and refugees too. It’s very disappointing.”
