Is this the world’s first racist soap dispenser? According to Teeij Meister it just very well may be. A man attending Dragon Con (or should we say Grand Dragon Con…) uploaded a video to Youtube showing a man with dark skin in a Marriott Marquis, placing his hand underneath a soap dispenser but nothing coming out. He then a man with milky white skin place his hand underneath only for the soap dispenser to then work.
It is in no doubt a stretch to say the soap dispenser is racist but what may actually be happening is because of the man’s dark skin, there is not enough light reflecting back to the censor.
