Cameras are now Racist

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/25/l...=pocket-newtab

Yep, besides the tea party, Civil War Statues, songs and singers, movies and entertainment, and of course, all white man written laws..............cameras have now been discovered to be racist.

Yep, like guns that jump up and shoot someone, and that someone who then goes to jail, (Din DoNuffin), it is cameras that are like guns.

Invented by Some guy named Dauguerro who produced images on tin or glass plates, "Daugerrotypes", and subsequently developed to an art form during the pre and Civil War days, it was all racism, unlike "Painters of the day like Monet, etc.

It was that mad man racist, George Eastman and his infernal film machine that took pictures that proved racism.

That camera might as well have been the Cotton Gin..........for cameras are racist machines, and tell the truth. Some Cameras like faces, and rejects others. It is a true fact that only faces that the camera "likes", get to be stars.


Eastman Kodak, Nikon, Pentax, and now THE RING DOORBELL.............are intrinsically race baiting machines, probably owned by the CSA and Robert E. Lee, if the historical truth be told.

Surveillance Cameras........................ are the very worst racist machines of all time.

Gravity is racist too. Thats why none of those scrap iron airplanes they build in Zimbabwe and Nigeria ever get off the ground.

At some point you just have to say, "Shut the F#ck up you F#cking Moron. You don't know sh!t about Sh!t!" And then, just leave it at that.

Agreed. However, having to then say this, twenty - thirty times each day would get old. But maybe after a few years, it might sink in. Or not.

Just a stray thought here.... with all the accusations flying around by certain minorities condemning non-minorities about cultural appropriation, who was it that invented basketball? I believe it was a white guy named James Naismith in Canada in 1891. Baseball? Many say Abner Doubleday. Others dispute it. Regardless, the game morphed from various stick ball games from Europe... not exactly a hot bed for non-whites. Football? Another European pedigree. So, who is it that appropriated another's culture?

as far as I got was 'your jacket is lighter than your face..' then it wanted me to sign up to read more or something. fugg that.

So I don't know what the assinine premise is.

That a good photographer will photograph dark skin folks differently that light skin folks so you can get a good picture?

Only a demented mind could find racism in the color tones of various photographic films, not the chemicals involved in the processing.

You read the article, see who it is written by, look at her background and present employment and have to ask: Who is the racist here?

I like the picture leading off the headline. Is this a redhead for Martin?

She is pretty but there's a bad vibe from her. Like almost a nurse ratchet vibe somehow.

Like the Brits did to the Tutsies and Hutus, that girls' hint of Karl Malden nose has you relegating her to the unsavory pile of crazy bitches in your past and future.

Racism knows no bounds according to those on the short end of the stick.
