Google Search

In the news, just amazing.
If you do a google search for "three black teenagers", you come up with this


while if you do a search for "three white teenagers" you get this


These results don't reflect Google's own opinions or beliefs as a company we strongly value a diversity of perspective ideas and cultures some people say it's not goggle fault and are advocating for positive online presentation. So, I did the same for

"three asian teenagers, I get this. Glad they don't look like criminals.

Do you know how google works? That is the real story- that morons think somehow google is racist becuase of how the search terms get rated based on their algorithms.

IMO its a non issue ... unless someone is so stupid as to decide what black, asian and white kids look like by googling the images and picking the top hit

Lots and lots of online content about this...i guess we can regurgitate it here for a while?

I did not copy google's response. It's not their fault. If you google the same thing now, you will see the blacks mug shots and the happy whites kids at the top because everyone is googling it.
