Are HP webcams not designed to recognize black people?

This video makes a significantly compelling arguement that HP facial-tracking software has a very unfortunate bug: it doesn’t seem to track black faces. In the video, two co-workers show how the camera-tracking feature doesn’t work for the black man but operates just fine for the white woman. HP says it’s aware of the video and is working on gathering more info about the issue.
