bias

Georgia is one of four states without a hate crime law. In 2000, state legislators passed a law forbidding acts targeting victims due to "bias or prejudice," but the state Supreme Court struck it down four years later for being too vague.

Repeated efforts to bring a new hate crime law since have failed. Last year, a bill brought by Chuck Efstration, a Republican Representative from Dacula, passed in the Georgia House. It's now up for debate in the state Senate.

A group of middle school students from Dacula, Georgia, is preparing for a world championship. This weekend the “Robo Sapiens” will head to Louisville, Kentucky for the 2018 VEX Robotics World Championship, where they will present the findings of their latest research on racist robots and bias in artificial intelligence.
