And of course, programmers aren't usually exemplars of ethical practice.

Not just programmers, AI learns by observing people. People are racist, misogynist and generally terrible.

Features are determined by what is visible to the observer. I suspect that darker skinned people will likely begin wearing lighter colored coats and jackets, for greater visibility. There's a reason that reflective clothing is used by rescue workers at night.
