There are differences in human beings!

Now, maybe we developed camera image sensors based on caucasian faces, and would have done a better job on African faces if they were developed by black engineers in , say , Botswana. Similarly, if female engineers in a female company had developed language recognition, I suspect it would do a better job at female voices. But they weren't, and people themselves and what datasets that they have, and then everyone calls them a bunch of racists for not doing every race/gender equally and perfectly.
