1. Looking at it another way, it's racist because it's only spying on the melanin deficient! Help!

It's responding to the reflectivity of lighter skin, so those concerned with Big Brother, better invest some time in a tanning booth. Which explains Cheetos Boehner complainng about taxes on using tanning booths by the melantin deficient. Let's see -where does orange fall on the light scale?

This could be a good thing. Just think, this will solve the problem of racial profiling, for those driving, walking and living while black. Naturally, some whites will find something else to be jealous about - they're being watched now- LOL!

It looks like black people are safe from big brother.

8. That's exactly what I thought!

I guess it's white people who are complaining because they figured out that they can be recognized and everyone else is basically safe for now...?

10. Hahahaha!

Almost makes you want to feel sorry for them, being singled out and all... not.



Okay, I confess, I didn't watch the vid first and made comments first after going on the OP attitude. So it is too bad the guy bought one for Christmas, he should take it back... and not be too upset that it doesn't recognize him. I, personally, wouldn't want a computer that "looks at me" from within. Why would I?

I don't know why people get those things, put their faces all over the web and then complain about big brother. Just sayin'.

5. Contrast problems with faces

You have to admit, it's a little harder to pick out the eyebrows and eyes on black people then it is on white people.

6. I went to college for film/video...

We spent an entire day on lighting and makeup for darker skinned people. It's a fact: darker skinned people have darker skin.
