I think the new filters on face app might upset some people..

People are proper getting out of their prams over it... http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/article/40887229/faceapp-launches-blackface-feature-then-deletes-it-after-social-backlash

Personally I don't get why people find it offensive.

It was obviously going to go down that route.
They did "be a lady" and "be a child" and "be old"
"Be a different race" was the next obvious step.

... doesn't mean it was right to do it, though.
They screwed themselves into a corner, really.

But it's all just a bit of fun, isn't it?

The option seems to have vanished from the app.

It's borderline...

I recently rewatched Mars Attacks, and there's a "gag" about halfway through where a reporter (who's sexually ambiguous) stands up and asks "Do the Martians 👽 have two sexes, like we do?"
The gag being, you can't tell which sex the reporter is.

Stuck out like a sore thumb, as being a joke from a bygone age.

We're on the cusp of being the wrong side of that generation gap. Just like how your Nan can be casually racist, and everyone in the room laughs, knowing fully well that that was totally wrong.

... "we're better than that."

The top right one looks too close for comfort mind!

Personally I don't see it as racist. They aren't claiming that any of the filters are better than the others, or that they make you look better, just different.
Would it not be more racist to *not* have this feature?

I think it's pretty neat actually. Hopefully it will be incorporated into game tech to make character/avatar builders more diverse.

I'd like to see a cartoon filter added.
