This Just In: HP Webcams Are Racist

December 21, 2009

So apparently HP webcams are racist and the facial-tracking software doesn't work on people of color. This may or may not include green people. To prove the point, two coworkers, Desi (a black man) and Wanda (a white woman) put the cam to the test. Per Desi:

As soon as White Wanda appears, the camera moves. Black Desi gets in there...uh -- nope! No face recognition any more buddy!

Damn HP, you sheisty bigots! And, not to start any wild rumors or anything, but I heard the built-in mic on MacBooks won't pick up your voice if you're Asian. You heard it here first! Unless Apple sues, in which case I copy/pasted it from another, less handsome blog.

Thanks to Zach, who's convinced almost all computer peripherals are racist in one way or another.
