The 1st sentence: "Have you ever noticed the popularity of white robots?"

Hope that helps.

This is similar to dolls, I think. There was a time when all dolls in stores were white.
Shiny white robots don't look anything like "white" people (or dolls).

This study was about humans racist views towards robots based on their paint color. It has nothing to do with white colored robots being racist like your title says. How could a robot even hold racist beliefs?
