Rashida Tlaib tells police chief to only use black facial recognition analysts
After Monday’s meeting, Tlaib was asked by a Detroit News reporter if by her remarks she meant that white people aren’t fit to analyze facial recognition software data.
“No, I think there has actually been studies out that it’s hard for — African Americans would identify African Americans, or Latinos, same thing.”
The next day in a prepared response, Tlaib spokesperson Denzel McCampbell provided the newspaper with a link to the study in question.
“The studies (Tlaib mentioned are) related to cross-race effect or other-race effect,” McCampbell said.
