The discriminating soap dispenser is in Atlanta Georgia.

Seriously though, the soap dispenser appeared to work when one puts their hand directly under it instead of running their hand along the side of it.

Now there's an idea, black soap. Want to bet no one uses it? Sure, black soap. Why isn't there any?

Did you miss all the giggling going on while the dude called the sink racist, OP? You know, like they thought it was funny? Kinda left that out of your thread title.

It was pretty amusing. I hope you aren't trying to infer the black man was literally offended by said dispenser?

Such details aren't important when so many posters are obsessed with any race-related story.

Almost as bad as those who only post about other CD forumers, instead of topic in any race-related story.

Sigh. There's a simple scientific explanation for this "racist phenomenon". Those soap dispensers work with infrared sensors and when they're low on battery power, the I.R. sends out a weaker beam that is better refracted by lightly-colored hands (white people) than darkly-colored hands. (black people)

Of course, people prefer to call the soap dispenser RACIST! instead of realizing the perfectly logical reasoning behind it. Like so many other situations where people cry "RACISM!"

Furthermore, if you bothered to read the Liveleak comments (I'm on there under the same handle) you would have easily found this information.
