Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib: All African-Americans Look Alike To Non-African Americans
[Victory Girls] Rashida Tlaib is not a fan of facial recognition technology. She has branded it racist and informed the Chief Craig of the Detroit Police Department that only African-American analysts should be eligible to work the system.

"U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib told Detroit police Chief James Craig he should employ only black people on the department’s facial recognition team because "non-African Americans think African-Americans all look the same."" [Emphasis Added]

Yes, she really said that.

Rashida Tlaib stated that anyone who is NOT African-American cannot differentiate between African-Americans when it comes to solving crimes. She leveled a racist generalization against anyone and everyone who isn’t African-American, and blatantly called for racial discrimination in the workplace.

A few takeaways on this

A. Does Tlaib realize that she herself essentially said that all blacks look alike?

B. As Chief Craig points out, if he or any white person had made the same comments, the fallout would be nuclear in scope.

C. Tlaib advocates for racial discrimination in the workplace, even though FEDERAL law has made it illegal to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, etc.

Rashida Tlaib can hop onto Twitter and link to all sorts of studies in an attempt to make her case about facial recognition. In the end it doesn’t matter because her comments to Chief Craig and the analysts within the Detroit PD have invalidated any decent argument she may have had.

Rashida Tlaib has ranted against racism and bigotry, yet openly expressed her OWN racism and bigotry to the world at large and to her own constituents. This is yet another instance where she shows us exactly who she is, and it’s not pretty.

#4 the police chief should have told her that the facial recognition software they use in black neighborhoods was written by black programmers, so it works fine.

a hateful dimwit like this would probably believe it.

#5 I wonder is this is all a contest between her, AOC and Omar to see who can out-crazy each other?

#7 I've had a couple Asian friends, Korean and Chinese, tell me that when they first came to the US, all whites looked alike to them. Maybe the "All X look alike" is simply a universal problem stemming from insufficient data.

#9 She has a point. I used to confuse Whitney Houston with Stacy Abrams.

Until one of them died. I'm not sure which one.

#10  the police chief should have told her that the facial recognition software they use in black neighborhoods was written by black programmers, so it works fine.

Not to worry! Everyone who worked on the software was required to identify as black while coding.
