I'm surprised this hadn't already been done.

Exactly what kind of narcissistic egomaniac gives a flying fuck about the colour of their bandaid? Or are they the next fashion accessory?

Younger generations that can seemingly find fault and issue where none exist.

The other week at work my boss tells me that there are three sinks out of order in the mens casino restroom that he wants me to check out. I hate calls like that because you don't know where to start. Are they clogged?, leaking?, no water coming out?, water temp wrong?, spraying everywhere? We have a log book where if someone from our department has looked at something, they write down the problem if they do not fix it. That way we know what parts and tools to take to the job. If the janitors put something out of order, they just put up the out of order sign. Sometimes they shut off the water supply. I always wear black disposable gloves to every call. I put my hand in front of the sensor in all three sinks, nothing happens. I assume that the janitor has shut off the water to the sinks. Its late in the shift. I am tired, and do not feel like screwing around. I go see the manager in charge of the janitors. Maybe he knows why the sinks are out of order. He has no knowledge but goes with me to speak to the janitor as he is bilingual. The janitor is nowhere to be found.

I tell the manager that someone from his department has shut off the sinks. He puts his white hand under the sensor, and water starts coming out. All three sinks. I tell him that they were not working for me just a few minutes earlier. He tells me that the sink will not work with the gloves that I am wearing........the black gloves. Does anyone see where this might be a problem? A very big problem?

It's a reoccurring theme:



Tay: Microsoft issues apology over racist chatbot fiasco

Simply put garbage in, garbage out. It's how systemic biases are created but how do you compensate unless you have diversity as a part of the design group?

I assume that this will result in an inevitable and major SJW virtue-signaling freakout before too long. Kids will be kids and because they're not born racist the white kids will see the black bandages and go "cool!" and want to wear them just because they're the new thing and look neat. So cue up some race baiters from the black community and the ultimate libbos to shit themselves when they spot a white kid with a black band-aid because it will obviously be because of nothing else but white supremacist RACISM!

The world sucks when you can set your fucking watch to the next manufactured outrage ginned up by those who are nothing but mean-spirited shit disturbers. Oi. :|

The people who see that these and so many other things are not made with them in mind. It's just another way the system excludes them.

As FUBU freakout from the left is just as likely as dumb-ass racist comments from the right when it comes to things like these band-aids. There's some good video on YT of some black ratchet freaking out and attacking a white kid in a college hallway just because the guy had dreadlocks, which according to her is something only blacks are allowed to do to their hair. I suspect there's just as many pieces of shit like her on the left as there is the legion-in-number shitheads on the right who keep going "why can't I still tell N-word jokes when I'm out in public?".

Always people will cite the edge cases when trying to defend the status quo.

The fact remains that much of our society is geared toward the white person, and males in particular. Like rick demonstrated, black surfaces are not picked up by photosensitive sensors. Black and brown people I work with always have problems with their laptop cameras trying to focus on them. And bandaids are really obvious for those who are non white.

Why the big deal because a company wants to tap a untapped market? I mean, J&J announced the same thing a year ago, and no one noticed.

...and another thing, why do people even care if they make different colour bandages. There are pickle bandages, bacon, Bob Ross, Jesus, Iron-man and hundreds of other bandages. I don't remember people complaining about those.
