    My thoughts exactly. Concioussness needs not a shell of flesh to hold a soul within.

    My point with my previous post was regarding today's world - We have not gotten to the point where AI is that intelligent. But we will certainly get to that point one day.

    So at this point, it would be more of a "prejudice" than racism. I think anyone that's anti-AI would be called a virus.
    As for why it would happen; the same reason all prejudice comes to be: fear. Word.

    At this point I believe it would be called a specialized case of technophobia.

    They're not a race, how can you be racist towards them? Stop watching Sci-Fi...will never be a race as far as i'm concerned. They aren't even born from nature.

    As Dark said it's true that robots aren't a race they aren't made from nature. That is until we fix them so we never have to make a new robot again, but going any further would be just discusting.
