We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Hitchhiking Robot That Relied on Human Kindness Found Decapitated

10th January 2018

Read it.

A hitchhiking robot that relied on the kindness of strangers to travel the world has been found with its head and arms ripped off, just two weeks into its first American tour.

The child-sized robot, known as hitchBOT, was found damaged beyond repair on the streets of Philadelphia early on Saturday. It had earlier hitched across the entire of Canada for 26 days and completed a hitchhiking adventure through Germany.

Note that they don’t dare reveal in what part of Philadelphia this happened. From this I suspect that it was in an area frequented by People of Color ™.
