NAACP Pissed Over “Avoid The Ghetto” App

Microsoft developed a smart phone app that helps people steer clear of 'dangerous neighborhoods'.

The NAACP charged the app as 'discriminatory', and 'racist', surprise!

Microsoft uses crime statistics to determine what parts of a town are to ugly to enter. The company has filed a patent for the work.

The NAACP doesn't agree and invoked the race card to squash the software. Of course, the truth is inconvenient, and those places are indeed dangerous.

The press avoids reporting on such crime - it's not PC. But will fill in the blanks.
