Can facial recognition be a biased problem when identifying people ? Many African
(Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Americans can not be actually identified with facial technology. In the magazine Fast Company, it stated, Researchers at Georgetown Law School’s Center of Privacy and Technology dropped their sprawling report, “The Perpetual Line-Up”—that many of us realized just how biased and far-reaching the implementation of the technology is.
Facial recognition has been around for years, but it is showing up more and more in today’s technological society. And out of the millions of photos of many law abiding citizens, who never had any real problems with the law enforcement,they have found that this technology has a hard time recognizing African Americans and women. The technology does not test for biases. Human Rights and Civil Rights investigations have been launched into the problem dealing with facial recognition.
Nate Parker’s Birth of A Nation is a master piece. The writer producer and director has put together a riveting story about the life of Nat Turner and his attempt to revolt against slavery. The film Birth of A Nation has caused so much controversy due to the Nate Parker rape allegation. But, inspite of controversy, the movie has still been able to pull in large audiences.
It seems the film community, and Hollywood maybe sabotaging the movies success due to the number of theaters it opened in. The opening weekend deemed the movie “Birth of A Nation” to be a failure according to Hollywood standards, because of its low box office success. Most African Americans across the country have been showing up to support the film so it seems. But, there seems to be another segment of the African American community, who is complaining about going to support the film due to Nate Parker’s prior rape allegation in his youth.
The man was acquitted of all charges, but for some reason the media has brought the pass situation to the forefront. Is it that Birth of A Nations subject matter is what people people are running from ? Is revolting from the oppressor to scary for the so called vigilant African American today ? What has some African Americans so pissed that they are willing to opt out of the Nat Turner story, but will go stand in a long ass line to see Boo ! A Madea’s Hollowen ?
African Americans seem to be notorious for crying foul about movies, and issues of social injustice, without any real plan of action to solve the problems at hand. Does the house negro and the field negro really exist ? I got into a heated argument over this movie with a women based off the whole rape allegation thingy. I told the young lady ” the man was acquitted, and you are acting like you slept with the man and still harboring old feelings about the situation. ” Naturally, she got pissed and unfriended on Facebook ! Who cares !
The question is, are you a hater of the African American story? Do you despise being black ? Do you find yourself tripping about Black Lives matter, or anything associated with black culture?

Does the Klu Klux Klan still exist ? Black men women and children have been getting
killed for no real reason at all by police officers. Police Officers of white European decent seem to be getting caught more, and more with their gun in hands killing innocent black men women and children. Is the Klu Klux Klan hiding in law enforcement ? And if so is it that we just don’t know it, or have we forgotten about it?
During the early Jim Crow era, many police officers were part of the Klu Klux Klan, and committed many acts of terror underneath the white sheet. African Americans were hung, burned, and castrated by many White men in uniform who were also Klan members. Today, its 2016 and black folks are being persecuted by white men working in law enforcement. Does the Klu Klux Klan still exist in law enforcement ? Why are black people being murdered for no reason ?
Many people have forgotten, that some of these white cops, had children and grandchildren they taught some of those same values to durning the Jim Crow and Civil Rights era. Does the Klan exist in the police force ? You better believe it ! Which is one reason you see the mass slaughtering of African Americans all across the country. Terrance Crutcher was just murdered by Tulsa Police department. It seems that he was killed for simply being a black man. Racist cops are among us incase you forgot. Terrance, as seen on video, had his hands in the air, and made sure the police officers knew it before walking back to his broken down van to place his hands on the van. Shortly after, you seen Terrance lying dead on the ground.
Are we dealing with a corrupt police force with low key Klu Klux Klan members ?
Officer James Burns was indicted on felony murder and aggravated assault charges, 11Alive reported. James Burns has always claims his innocence, but on Wenensday a grand jury indicted Burns for the fatal shooting of Cain Rogers.
James Burns lied to authorities about how he ended shooting Cain. The video dash cam showed a whole another story about how Mr. Rogers was murdered. Burns reported to authorities that he ” didn’t know to block that particular car,” Burns told investigators after the shooting. “I shot at the car who was trying to run me over and kill me.” After the investigation Atlanta Police Chief fired Mr. James Burns siting he violated police procedure.
It looks like Mr. James Burns may be getting some time after this police shooting of another unarmed innocent man.
