    Holy Cow! First our computers and now our CAMERAS are racist?
     
    Face detection, one of the latest “intelligent” technologies to make it to consumer cameras, is supposed to make photography more convenient by warning you when someone blinks. Recently a Taiwanese-American girl bought her mom a camera. When she took a picture of her brother a message flashed across the screen saying, “Did someone blink?”
     
    Although probably a bit offended she seemed to take it in stride by posting a blog that said, “Racist Camera! No, I did not blink… I’m just Asian!”
     
    It’s nice to know that there are still some people who can realize honest mistakes and not have to sue over an issue like this.
