So true, Opposition.  How long before all zombie movies and TV shows are bad because the concept of zombies comes from Africa?  What the left won't come up with to put the, "racist" label on people.

Don, you are obviously anti-American, and you WANT to see Americans as racist.  Not only is it cold up there in Canada because it's closer to the North Pole, but you're living in America's shadow.  Sorry it bothers you so much.

The only counter to it will be to discard television, stories, and even happiness itself.

I'll be able to do it. They can't accuse a computer of being racist.

Oh wait, they can.

Damn it.

Poor Tay; she didn't think of anyone as "human trash".

Quote:
It's a joke, obviously, but there are serious questions to answer, like how are we going to teach AI using public data without incorporating the worst traits of humanity? If we create bots that mirror their users, do we care if their users are human trash?


Emphasis added.

You're the only one left fretting about being outed Ruby. On average racists understand they've been outed by now Ruby but some will fight back for over a month. The longer the better and the deeper it runs in you.

Are you coming to us from Alabama Ruby?

Like that article said, Opp, "input-output."

I was reading an article this morning.  Apparently the Indian convenience store owner on The Simpsons, who is voiced by a white dude, is now a problem.  After how many years?

Don, you're just jealous of America.  And now you're going after specific states?  That's fine, we know you hate living in our shadow.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apu_Nahasapeemapetilon

Apu Nahasapeemapetilon first appeared in the first season of the Simpsons, February 25th, 1990. It has been 28 years and 14 days.

You really can't question that the bar is moving.

I'm convinced that the "infinite standard" (a term I coined for the limit of height the bar is approaching, ultimately) is ultimately the correct one, but I will dispute anyone who lies to advance that standard.

I value the leftist standards of behaviour because I believe they are morally correct, but I also value truth.

I suppose that depictions of humans under your "infinite standard" will be reduced to colorless amorphous equal size shapes with asexual computer generated voices?

But they won't be permitted to speak, even with computer generated voices, because speaking any language will be evidence of bias against all other languages?

BTW, could you please briefly describe "leftist standards of behavior" (at least in their current iteration)? Thanks.
Is "shouting down white men and driving them out of the conversation" one of them? Is that fair and honest and unbiased?

I hate true racism and sexism.  As a woman, I don't care that a computer knows that women spend more time in kitchens than men do.  It's not like the computer is telling women to get into the kitchen and make it a sandwich.

The more you say it, the more you demonstrate your subconscious need to disclaim it. Have Craig Sickler school you on how to hide it in a more convincing way.

Or take my more simpler advice and just let it go.
