racistcamera-110209.jpgA few months ago Joz got her mom a new Nikon digital camera for Mothers Day. They got to try out the camera at a baseball game, but after taking a few pictures Joz’s mom got a real surprise.

“As I was taking pictures of my family, it kept asking “Did someone blink?” even though our eyes were always open.”

What makes things even more interesting is Nikon is a Japanese company…you’d think it would recognize Asians better. What gives?
