Not The Onion:
Quote:
(CNN)Have you ever noticed the popularity of white robots?
You see them in films like Will Smith's "I, Robot" and Eve from "Wall-E." Real-life examples include Honda's Asimo, UBTECH's Walker, Boston Dynamics' Atlas, and even NASA's Valkyrie robot. All made of shiny white material...
"Imagine a world in which all the robots working in Africa or India are white. Further imagine that these robots take over roles that involve authority. Clearly, this would raise concerns about imperialism and white supremacy," Bartneck told CNN

Much more forbidden racist robot content here.

Now further imagine that these robots take over menial tasks. Clearly this would raise concerns about inferiority.

Just when you thought you heard it all from the deranged left wing propaganda machine. They are desperately clinging on to their narratives, and it's pathetic to watch. Narratives are all they have left since everyone stopped consuming their garbage.

Where in the article does it say white robots are racist? Stop spinning things like Fox News & learn how to read.

It doesn't help that anime streaming site Crunchyroll is a corporate relative to CNN!

Interesting. The article is saying that people want to see robots that are the most popular color...in America, that's white.

This is similar to dolls, I think. There was a time when all dolls in stores were white. Even AA children wanted white dolls, when asked which color they wanted. They were perceived as the best color/race/ethnicity to buy. Fast forward...AA and other races are now represented in dolls, and ethnicities. So little kids of all races & ethnicities can find a doll that looks like them.

I don't know, but it makes sense that that would be the case for robots as it was for dolls, once upon a time. I suppose if I bought a robot that was a specific color, I would choose one that is like me? Maybe they should be different colors, like blue.
