Artificial intelligence is being used to do many things from diagnosing cancer, stopping the deforestation of endangered rainforests, helping farmers in India with crop insurance, it help you find the Fyre Fest Documentary on Netflix (or Hulu), or it can even be used to help you save money on your energy bill.

But how could something so helpful be racist?

intriguing question: What will we do if representative data sets show race bias. For example: After looking at representative data sets, AI says you should choose the black dude on your pick-up basketball game or the Asian guy as your partner on the science project. Do we make rules to say what is permissible to ask AI to do?

I did a YouTube search for "racist AI"…this is the most informative video on the first page.
The data set is the key and the photo experiment here illustrates the point well. I did find the potential harms stated in the video to be minor in comparison to what racism in the "Natural Intelligence" world produces.

So white guys robs a shop light goes on camera picks him up white guy in jail
Black guy robs shop light doesn't pick him up camera can't see. Black has big party
There's no such thing as racism

I’m not surprised by this, due to Systemic global white supremacy which white people benefits historically and socially today . The powers that be (White elites) started this Al era in order replicate there psychology of whiteness to further continue their supremacy over the world. And they created systems within systems like classism (so poor ppl who lose out and would be heavily affect due to this), western Patriarchy especially non white females will be most disenfranchise. In order to have true liberty you need to fix the inequality that this world faces before starting something new.
