Q. If machine learning is so smart, how come AI models are such racist, sexist homophobes? A. Humans really suck

unimaginative

Re: So AI in this instance got it right

I also notice that if I look up lists of successful black americans they do not have "African American" sounding names, they mostly have "western" names - I have found lists of various categories of black politicians (congress, senate, state governors) and articles on black business and professional people. There is a clear pre-preponderance of "western" names (i.e. the same sort of names white Americans have)

SO the bias is against the subset of black Americans who give their kids a certain sort of name. I suspect just class bias?
