It’s a question that many of us have pondered: Can an automated soap dispenser be racist?
Some people, of course, would say “no”—soap dispensers are mechanisms completely beyond or devoid of the cognitive bias, systemic influence, and environmental factors that culminate in what we would typically label “racism.” On the other hand, there are these damning videos.
So yeah, apparently soap dispensers can be racist. But #NotAllSoapDispensers, presumably.
