If you have transhuman cyborgs will you have biases like racism in the machine form?

Like firmware discrimination, software discrimination, hardware logic component elitism, or machine body husk trait biases etc.

I know a few people with artificial limbs. It doesn't scare me at all. There may be some point in the future where this technological subject causes problems, but, for now, I only see it helping the disabled.

I defiantly think so. Makes me think about how Jeremy Clarkson talks about the Toyota prius. Like "why in the heck do people these days still walk around in Honda leg actuators" or "uug are those fake Gucci hair implants".

yes, just how there is discrimination with things like cars. As long as there can be comparisons made between durability, efficiency, computing power, physical capabilities, there will be 'meaning' placed over how those things compare. Though the discrimination mostly may be coming from those with the fullest packages, so to speak, as in other ways there might be harmony between separate individuals who can do certain things the other cant, thus working together helps them both.
