    When a Robot Police Dog Is Deemed Racist (For Being Deployed in Communities of

    Color to Stop Crime), Have We Reached Peak Wokeness?

    When robot dogs are considered racist, theres no hope for inanimate objects from the woke mob. [AOC slams NYPDs $75,000 robotic police dog named Digidog as racist saying it prowls the streets only in low-income communities of color, Daily Mail, March 1, 2021]:


    AOC slams NYPDs $75,000 robotic police dog named Digidog as racist saying it prowls the streets only in low-income communities of color


    • Democratic firebrand AOC blasted the police departments four-legged Digidog in a succession of Thursday tweets after it was deployed in the Bronx
    • Ocasio-Cortez appeared to accuse the NYPD of racism for deploying the device for testing on low-income communities of color with under-resourced schools
    • She also argued that police funding that allows for new technology like the Digidog would have better served if it had been allotted to education or housing
    • Digidog, which was designed by Boston Dynamics and has a starting price of around $75,000, joined the NYPD last year and was used in a call Tuesday
    • Other critics have warned that empowering a robot to do police work could have implications for bias, mobile surveillance, hacking and privacy
    • But ex-officers say the robot has tremendous potential to help limit fatalities and injuries during hostage situations and other high-stakes calls

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
    has denounced the NYPDs new crime-fighting robot dog, appearing to accuse the department of racism for deploying the device for testing in only low-income communities of color.

    Maybe they should have a robot social worker in those areas.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    If they had deployed this robot dog into a high class neighborhood, would they be accusing a robot of not caring about poor people?

    Since it's mostly black, would that make this robot dog an Uncle Tom?
