In the past words used to hold meaning but now most words, original definitions are being changed to fit the liberal agenda. For example, decades ago when the word fascist was used it was powerful and frightening but now it is used to silence anyone who disagrees with the liberal ideology. Another word that has been hijacked and altered to fit the liberal agenda is the word racist. Every day the left uses this particular word to describe conservatives who support President Trump and his platform to make America great again. Now, these words have almost become a joke and have lost the power that was attached to them at one time. Which is why it is pretty sad when supposed educated individuals have the audacity to call a soap dispenser racist and the reason is absurd.
We have all used one of these automatic soap dispensers before in public restrooms. You place your hand under these automatic soap dispensers and sometimes they release the liquid soap and sometimes not. Well, apparently a gentleman that works in the technology industry has decided to dub these automatic soap dispenser racists and make a video about it.
Chukwuemeka Afigbo, a Nigerian man who works in the tech industry tweeted this video of two men using the dispenser. The first man who used it was caucasian and when he placed his hand under the soap dispenser it released the germ killing soap, however, when a black man did the same action the soap dispenser did not. So, instead of this man coming to the conclusion that there was just a glitch in the design, he immediately claims it was just racist.

However, not everyone bought into this race-baiting tweet and reacted to the viral post with laughing emoji and memes. Though instead of this ridiculous tweet fading off into the sunset IFL Science chose to write a story on the racial bias of this soap dispenser, of course, making it political.
The no-touch soap dispenser most likely uses some kind of light sensor to detect when a hand is beneath the contraption. Apparently, a dark-skinned hand wasn’t light enough to register on the sensor. This simple problem would have been avoided if it had been tested on a variety of skin tones. That, of course, requires people working in the industry from a variety of backgrounds.
There are plenty more examples of this. Soap dispensers, for one, seem to be particularly bad at dealing with different skin tones. In the past, Flickr and Google were both forced to apologize when their automatic image labeling systems were tagging photos of black people with “ape” and “gorilla”.
There was also the story of Joz Wang, a Taiwanese-American, whose Nikon digital camera kept offering up with the message “Did someone blink?”, to which she responded with a blog post titled “No, I did not blink… I’m just Asian!”
A scientific study also brought up the issue of voice recognition applications being far more effective at understanding men’s voices compared to women’s. That was because the software was trained using mainly male voices.
It’s hardly news to say the tech industry has a bad track record when it comes to diversity. Famous recent examples include the supposed “bro culture” of Uber and the disgruntled Google employee who recently released his “anti-diversity manifesto”.
Google’s own statistics reveal its tech departments are just 1 percent black, 3 percent Hispanic, 3 percent mixed-race, 39 percent Asian, and 53 percent white. Statistics on other tech giants paint a similar story.
On the surface, these little screw-ups like the soap dispenser can be viewed as funny, how can a non-sentient piece of tech be racist? But in reality, they show why diversity is so important in the most straightforward sense. Afterall, the company behind the dispenser probably wasn’t being intentionally racist. They were, however, thoughtless.
Companies wanting to widen the diversity of its employees is not just a simple a case of liberal idealism, although that might often be part of it, but addressing a real issue. Technology is used by everyone so it should be a reflection of everyone. If it doesn’t do that, it doesn’t work as well as it could.
Thanks, “racist” soap dispenser – you’ve taught us so much.
Of course, the social justice warriors on the internet agreed that there was more of a racial bias by the inventors and not exactly per say the machine.
Maybe if the company that designed this employed a single dark skinned person they'd have found this problem earlier.

*face palm* not about the scanner; its about not having a coding staff diverse & thoughtful enough to have one that recognizes DARKER color
— Obi~Wil Kenobi 🌊 (@blackquinoa) August 16, 2017
The point was, if they had hired a POC the tech would have been designed correctly in the first place.

Thankfully, people on Twitter saw this as just another way to cause more division and quickly called out the race baiters.
Sometimes I think people are just looking for a reason to fight on both sides.

Looks like a lighting issue to me. An IR scanner doesnt "see" skin color. poorly lit bathroom fixtures dont work for me either sometimes
— Iunno N Emoore (@noticeofpoop) August 16, 2017
Since it is in the company's interest to sell soap, it's an error, not racism, and a costly one for them (redesign, update). Know your tech.
— user unknown (@user_unknown8) August 16, 2017
How does a faulty sensor in a machine compare to a palpable issue like diversity in Tech? Don't be naive please. This proves nothing
— Bill Michael🇳🇬 (@five_nine_dev) August 16, 2017
No engineer woke up one morning & said, today I'm gonna design a sensor on a soap dispenser that makes it difficult for a poc to use. C'mon.
— Squelchtone (@Squelchtone) August 16, 2017
There are a lot of issues out there in the world but making one over a soap dispenser is really going off the deep end. There has to be a point where people stop looking to cause problems and start being the solution to issues. Constantly looking for things to complain about in a world full of millions of people will not get you anywhere, but enjoying the people around you will.

Eminem Just Got DEVASTATING Dose Of Karma 1 Week After Telling Trump And His Fans To ‘F’ Themselves
Ever since Trump won the election, liberal butt-hurt has been on full display. Obama-worshiping celebrities are worst types of liberals, with rappers like Snoop Dogg now utilizing their “talent” to act out Trumps assassination plots in their music videos, as they jive around making terroristic threats to a catchy beat.
Several weeks ago, washed up aging rapper Eminem was the latest celebrity to vomit his opinion about President Trump into the universe, where he tailored a song specifically for Colin Kaeprnick, praising the third-string quarterback’s disrespect for our country, where the remainder of the song was written to bash President Trump. Eminem then told any fan of his who had voted for Trump to basically “F themselves,” displaying yet again the “tolerance” of the left.
Now just one week after Eminem’s anti-Trump song went viral among liberals, karma has just smacked the 45-year-old so hard, he might just get launched all the way to the Compton trailer park where he belongs. “Slim Shady” recently decided to freestyle about how much he hated Trump, taking the stage on Saturday Night Live to perform his new single, “Walk On Water.”
The aging Eminem was hoping that his new hit single could rocket him back into the spotlight he lost back in the early 2000’s, but his uninspiring performance promoted several of his fans to give some unsolicited advice that has absolutely crushed Eminem’s ego.
“Eminem is SKEWERED on social media after his bizarre performance on SNL.”
“Eminem doing a time machine performance and it ain’t helping the fact that he’s washed up and old,’ a user wrote,
“Awful performance on SNL. @Eminem.”
“Eminem sucks so bad and it sounds like he’s spitting every time he talks @nbcsnl make it stop,” one user wrote, breaking specific elements in the performance which they believed weren’t up-to-snuff.
Another groused: “Eminem is terrible…damn does the dude have any sense timing/rhythm? Well at least he got the grey dyed out of his beard… that’s something I guess.”
Echoing a similar sentiment, one said: “Wish I could text my 7th grade self like: ‘Omg b****, Eminem still raps in 2017 and he sucks!’”
What’s hilarious is this isn’t the first Trump-bashing celebrity to get a massive dose of well-deserved karma immediately after publicly bashing our president. Carrie Underwood delivered a disgusting anti-Trump performance on stage at the CMAs, going on to break a bone shortly afterwards.
Country music fans who are typically conservative and support our president and appreciate what he’s done to make America great again, lost all respect for Underwood and Paisley after they decided to turn against the fans and the president on stage at the CMAs. With total disregard for who was watching and the CMA executives orders, hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood suggested Trump’s a cheater in a song performance and put on skits poking fun of some things he’s done in the public eye. They clearly crossed the line and the show’s instant ratings plummet proved it, but Underwood just took a really hard fall that her former fans are calling “karma” for her nasty anti-Trump antics.
It’s pretty hilarious that no matter what liberals do to destroy our president, their antics always manage to blow up in their faces. But how fitting is it that
What The NYT Said They Are Teaching Black Kids To Do To White Kids Because Of Trump Will Make You SICK!
They’ve gone Way too far This time!
Most of us now have a very firm grasp on how difficult racial issues have become in America today. No matter how much a person wants to bridge the gap, if another person claims they were offended, all those efforts were wasted. White privilege and social equality seem to be the mantras of 2017, and it’s only getting worse.
While the idea of making everyone equal might sound really great, unfortunately, that’s not what’s happening. In what we hope started out as a sincere campaign to combat ill-treatment of African Americans, has morphed into an all-out war on Caucasians. The irony isn’t lost on most that the treatment that social justice warriors claim to be fighting is the treatment that they’re handing out.
Let’s be clear, no one is saying that the treatment of African Americans in this country in the past was right. However, it’s also not right to punish this generation of white privilege holders, just because you feel the pain of those in your past. But that’s just what one Law School professor in advocating that we do in his op-ed for the New York Times. Daily Wire‘s Ben Shapiro re-published the piece so that you and I can enjoy a peek into the mind of the conscientious social justice warrior, and how they’re raising their kids:
On Saturday, The New York Times ran yet another execrable op-ed, this time from Professor Ekow Yankah of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University. This op-ed argued that black children should not be friends with white children and that their parents ought to warn them off of such relationships. This assuredly makes things awkward at Yeshiva University, a Jewish school.
The piece begins with Yankah’s oldest son, who is 4, talking about his friends:
‘My oldest son, wrestling with a 4-year-old’s happy struggles, is trying to clarify how many people can be his best friend. “My best friends are you and Mama and my brother and …” But even a child’s joy is not immune to this ominous political period. This summer’s images of violence in Charlottesville, Va., prompted an array of questions. “Some people hate others because they are different,” I offer, lamely. A childish but distinct panic enters his voice. “But I’m not different.” It is impossible to convey the mixture of heartbreak and fear I feel for him. Donald Trump’s election has made it clear that I will teach my boys the lesson generations old, one that I for the most part nearly escaped. I will teach them to be cautious, I will teach them suspicion, and I will teach them distrust. Much sooner than I thought I would, I will have to discuss with my boys whether they can truly be friends with white people.
Meaningful friendship is not just a feeling. It is not simply being able to share a beer. Real friendship is impossible without the ability to trust others, without knowing that your well-being is important to them. The desire to create, maintain or wield power over others destroys the possibility of friendship. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous dream of black and white children holding hands was a dream precisely because he realized that in Alabama, conditions of dominance made real friendship between white and black people impossible.
As against our gauzy national hopes, I will teach my boys to have profound doubts that friendship with white people is possible. When they ask, I will teach my sons that their beautiful hue is a fault line. Spare me platitudes of how we are all the same on the inside. I first have to keep my boys safe, and so I will teach them before the world shows them this particular brand of rending, violent, often fatal betrayal.
Of course, the rise of this president has broken bonds on all sides. But for people of color the stakes are different. Imagining we can now be friends across this political line is asking us to ignore our safety and that of our children, to abandon personal regard and self-worth. Only white people can cordon off Mr. Trump’s political meaning, ignore the ‘unpleasantness’ from a position of safety. His election and the year that has followed have fixed the awful thought in my mind too familiar to black Americans: ‘You can’t trust these people.’…I do not write this with liberal condescension or glee. My heart is unbearably heavy when I assure you we cannot be friends.'”
Shapiro adds his own comments to the professor:
“The condescension is real, and the glee is palpable. To teach your children not to hope for a day when black and white can be friends – in fact, to teach your children now that such a day isn’t here – is asinine. And to pretend that every Trump voter is replete with hatred is just as asinine. But racism and bigotry are fine so long as they come from the Left, apparently.”
Once again, we find that every woe this country has begins and ends with both Donald Trump and white people. It gives the impression that there’s never going to be peace because those who claim to want it are actually stirring up the hate. The mantra that the white guilt will never be enough and that African Americans will have to mete out punishment as they see fit is an ideology that will only lead to more hatred and fear. The roles might end up being reversed, but it will still breed fear, and with fear comes conflict.

This Is Melania’s Shocking Christmas Theme With Hidden Message To Michelle That Has Her FURIOUS
The Trumps are preparing for their first Christmas in the White House which you can expect to be far different than the last two Christmases while the Obamas were occupying the place. It’s the responsibility of the first lady to decide on a theme for the decor and Melania’s shocking sudden decision is one that Americans will love. However, her predecessor, Michelle Obama, is furious at the hidden message her replacement snuck in right next to the official tree that cannot be ignored.
True to Trump fashion, the first couple are doing things their own way and not making any apologies for it, no matter who it offends, knowing what the country needs now and making it great again. Liberals have hijacked the holiday season for too long with their political correctness and now that’s all coming to an end. The real reason for the season has been absent for the last eight years and now that’s all about to change in a big way that will surely make every liberal snowflake in the country melt. Michelle removed something from the White House that she didn’t like seeing during the holidays and now, Melania isn’t just bringing it back, she’s making sure that it gets a lot of attention – especially Michelle’s who hates the reminder that she’s not in control of Christmas anymore.
Last week, we reported that Melania would be accepting the official White House Christmas tree ahead of schedule since the first family will be spending Thanksgiving in Florida, and will not be in D.C. for the normal date. While there’s nothing wrong with that decision, especially since the Trumps are showing an incredible balance of maintaining White Hosue tradition along with their own family traditions, Michelle isn’t going to like what she sees in the vicinity of this tree.
July Fourth News reports:
President Donald Trump has perfectly clarified that he is saying, “Merry Christmas,” and rejecting the politically correct greeting “Happy Holidays.“ Christians in America expressed joy as the new Commander-in-Chief is speaking our language after years of the Obamas’ generic “holiday“ parties and pagan decorations at the White House. Currently, liberals losers expressed an extreme dislike of nativity scenes and speaking about Christ’s birth are in a precarious situation since Melania’s “secret plan“ for Christmas at the White House has circulated widely on the internet.
First Lady Melania Trump, as all first ladies before her, is taking care of the Christmas plans for the White House. That involves all the decorations, the official tree lighting ceremony, the pageantry, and entertainers for the festivities, and she decides on a “theme,” a tradition started by Jacqueline Kennedy.
Michelle Obama’s theme for her last Christmas in the White House was “The Gift of the Holidays,” which she described as “reflects on not only the joy of giving and receiving, but also the true gifts of life, such as service, friends and family, education, and good health,” according to the CBS.
Michelle’s “Holiday” themes were soulless, entirely lacking warmth, which reflected the decor, characterized as “pagan.” Also, given the fact that it was the Obamas who broke the tradition of having a nativity scene in the White House, and Barack banned them from federal property in 2015. Michele Obama has replaced the keyword “Christmas“ for the official White House Christmas season with the word “Holiday.”
Now, the internet exploded after Melania wrote a simple tweet, but it had an extremely powerful effect all the politically correct losers. “This year’s @WhiteHouse Christmas booklet is in printing! Excited to receive the beautiful tree Monday! #ChristmasTraditions,” Melania tweeted.
— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) November 17, 2017
However, the great issue for the Christmas haters and those who detest nativity scenes is her hashtag, #ChristmasTraditions. That hashtag is perfectly establishing the mood and the character of White House this Christmas season — and it didn’t make liberals very happy. Actually, their adverse reactions to #ChristmasTraditions were so wicked, we won’t share them here; it’s pure evil.
President Trump already set the tone for the season as a promise he made during his campaigning that we’re going to start saying “Merry Christmas” again, instead of taking religion out of the religious holiday. He’s done that with reaffirming that resolve in an announcement reminding everyone that Jesus is the reason for the season and here in American we’re going to say the words that have been melting liberal snowflakes for years. However, that was just the start. When these anti-Christmas lefties see what he’s doing to the White House Christmas tree, it’s only a matter of time before these liberal Scrooges hit the streets with anti-Christmas carols, screaming their rhetoric.
President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have not only made America great again, they are about to make Christmas in this country great again. We’re in for a spectacular season we’ve longed for over the last eight years and there’s a lot to celebrate this year, starting with the massively improved economy that makes Christmas easier for a lot of American families.
