contaminants -- >> reporter: the team showed what a prototype of the app might look like. >> you can see that it is fake alcohol. >> reporter: mit believes the technology could help people avoid safety hazards such as tainted alcohol which kills or blinds hundreds of people every year. >> reporter: the goal is for consumers to one day be able to use the technology to test meals in restaurants and at home. >> you could envision future smart fridges that incorporate the technology to detect contaminated food or food spoilage. >> reporter: if i scan food and am told the lettuce is contaminated, where else would it go? >> it would be uploaded to an online data base. ideally even connected to servers which regulation boards have access to. >> reporter: regulation boards like the cdc, which says 128,000 americans are hospitalized by food fo foodborne illnesses every year. >> we have great technology now, and still 48 million americans
7:45 am
get sick every year. >> reporter: while consumers like goldman are interested in being able to detect contamination themselves, food safety lawyer bill marler hopes grocery stores will use the technology, too. >> i see the best use of this kinds of technology as sort of before it hits the marketplace. before it goes on a grocery store shelf. >> in the near term, i hope consumers will do it. in the long term, i hope that it will become so seamless that it will disappear into the environment such that if it's in the infrastructure of the grocery store. >> reporter: do you think it will be as mainstream as paying with your phone like we do now? >> i certainly hope that this will be the case. >> reporter: professor adib told cbs news the secondnology could be in -- technology could be in people's hands in five years. he hopes one day the system will be able to detect sugar levels and calories which of course could help diabetics and anyone watching their weight. >> sounds promising. and you told us yesterday the fda is looking into the

8:03 am
said he wore blackface at a college party in 1980. he apologized saying i had a callous an inexcusable lack of awareness and insensitive to the pain my behavior could inflict on others. herring had asked northam to resign due to his facebook perfe perfect and fairfax was charged by the woman who says he sexually assaulted her. he denies the accusations. the gop grew control of the legislature by drawing out of a bowl to determine the race out of a bowl. that's the issue in virginia politics today. >> blackface has a long and painful and racist history in this country, so we want to give you a heads up that some of the images we're about to show you are very disturbing. blackface became popular in the mid-1800s in minstrel shows when white performers darkened their
8:04 am
faces to depict african-americans. jim crow was a namesake for krim joe laws apt the measures that enforced segregation in the south. even black actors were forced to wear black face in part to make white audiences feel superior. civil rights organizations have pointed out for decades that blackface dehumanizes black people and reinforces very harmful racial stereotypes. dwandalyn reece is curator of music and performing arts at the national museum of a can american history and culture in washington and joins us at the table to discuss. we had such a spirited conversation in the makeup room this morning so i'm so glad you're here. >> thank you. >> why don't you start us off by letting people know why this is so offensive because i have so many white friends who say i don't understand it. i meant no harm. i admire diana ross, as attorney general said curtis blow and i was really trying to pay a compliment. >> well, part of it is
8:05 am
understanding the history of blackface and the inception which started in the mid-1800s, and what it was -- it was white performers blacking up their face and caricatures african-americans, looking hat them as lazy, unintelligent, stereotyping and certain stereotypes like the mamie figure, uncle tom, the stricter, and all these caricatures were taking elements of a can american people and making them objects for rid dual and humor and entertainment. >> mm-hmm. cut to where we are today, they are not trying to play the mammy role or the jim crow role. >> they are no. it's the lingering images of blackface and minstrelsy that really set the course for popular entertainment which has gone throughout the 20th and 21st century. >> do people's intentions matter here, dwandalyn? >> not necessarily, because i would understand how people would think it's a foreign of flattery, it's a form of just imitating somebody you admire,
8:06 am
but knowing the history that really makes a difference and how painful these images were for african-americans and what it set off in this country of a way of stereotyping and dehumanizing people based on the color of their skin. >> which was an effort to enforce power less which if you dehumanize and make them lesser you can do anything with the laws. >> it is a question of power, and when people are asked the opposite, someone mentioned "whik chicks," the movie, when the wayan brothers dressed up as white women? >> how so? >> it's the power dynamic that you talk about with appropriating people's images, and -- and when you have the power to do that and to oppress, it's very different than a cultural exchange, a fair cultural exchange. >> jim crow, the original blackface character became to epitomize the jim crow laws, state and local laws then forced segregation, enforced bigotry, enforced plessy v. ferguson, all

of that, that's the history of this country. to gayle's country. what about those who are saying, and this is a conversation that gayle brought up this morning, those who are saying in an aspiring way to dress up as beyonce or a cultural figure of prominence. >> it's still painful. it's still painful to african-americans, and i think there's a lot of white americans who theme the say way. those images are tied to a legacy of oppression and slavery and objectfying and devaluing people so if you would look at cultural norms of the time the images real very a lasting impact and the don't mean what people intend necessarily. >> with so many things in this day and age, it's hard not to have children of a young age became aware of news in the head links. as i was preparing for this last night my 6-year-old was next to me and he asked what this was all about. what's the teachable moment here. how do we talk to generations of children to come about why this
8:08 am
is so important? >> i think part of it is knowing the history and explaining the history to your children in a way that breaks down the stereotype to see where it came from. >> is there room for atonement here, dwandalyn, where some people may be losing their jobs. is there room for atonement? >> i think so. i don't think this is a way to label people for lifetime. people change. they become educated. they evolve. >> is it possible that someone who dressed up in this way 30 years ago, is that person racist? >> that's not for me to say, but i think the act of going through this means that there's a lack of understanding about the meaning of this. does that equate to racism? you'd have to talk to that individual personally, but it is an act that perpetuates racist ideology in that way. >> so hard to talk about race, but we have got to have this conversation. >> gained lip, thank you very much. >> so glad you came. >> thank you for having me. >> and we should note that there is more on the website of the museum, too, if you would like
