In case you didn’t know, everything is racist. Everything. From math class to tossed-out banana peels in trees. If it exists, you can be sure it hates people of color. You know what else is a Confederate flag-waving, racist ninnymuggins? Your new iPhone X. At least, according to leftists:
A woman in the city of Nanjing, China, claimed that her colleague was able to unlock her iPhone X using Face ID, according to the South China Morning Post. The woman, who was identified only by her surname, Yan, reportedly returned an iPhone X after she said her colleague was able to unlock it with the Face ID feature. She was reportedly given a new iPhone X, and the same thing allegedly happened again.
The Apple spokesperson tells Bustle that Face ID continues to learn as it’s used, becoming able to recognize subtle changes in appearance such as facial hair or makeup. Despite these possibilities for a false match, the story is raising concerns on the internet about the importance of diversity in tech.
Some people on Twitter are suggesting that the reason the Face ID recognized both Chinese women’s faces has to do with bias by programmers of the tool.
So, according to the iPhone, Asians look alike.
Way to go iPhone! You’ve successfully joined the ranks of soap dispensers, eclipses, and other inanimate object Klan members. These Hitler-loving cellular devices are using their racial biases to deprive innocent yellow people of their privacy. No wonder they offer the phone in white.
Normally, Apple is a “forward-thinking” company. But, I guess their vision of the future doesn’t include Asian people of color. They exploit cheap Chinese labor to make the iPhones, yet they deny them the use of its basic security measures. How dare you, Tim Cook.
Jokes aside, the phones aren’t racist. Neither are the programmers. As hilarious as it is to see Apple cannibalized by the same social justice zombies they pander to, there’s no wrongdoing here. Just faulty programming.
But I doubt leftists are going to let facts get in the way of their “everything is racist” narrative:
