    Not at all. I personally find it disgusting and an infringement of my privacy. You should be able to disable it in your Google settings. Sorry about my tone!
    I will see if I can disable because there's no ****ing way I use Yahoo search :afraid:

    Do you understand boolean or how computers work? A tweet from a random person isn't an official source either. It's another confused person who doesn't understand how search works. It's already been exlained and people are still in hysterics.

    When you search for something it's about the keywords you used while you typed. The search engine then picks up ANYTHING that has even one word in the whole search term you typed.

    iEthan you say its about algorithms, so isn't racist, but there are humans behind the algorithms. Isnt it likely that some google employees decided to have a laugh at black peoples expense?

    A computer is not a human being with feelings. It operates on command based on what you type in and it automates pulling up what's in the system. Even I know this.

    You are really incredible. You must be a troll trying to ridicule anything a true anti-racist stands for.

    Oh grow up. Calling people you disagree with trolls is just stupid and shows you don't have any arguments left.

    No, seriously. How hard would it be for a Google employee to mess around with the search algorithm and results?

    There's always going to be racists and sexists and the lot so I think it's just a matter of how much you care. Unless it directly affects me like job prospects or whatever, I couldn't care less if tonnes of people are racist because there are tonnes of people who aren't that I can be friends with or whatever.

    INCREDIBLY hard. So utterly, unbelievably hard. Google has an internal process in which any change to a vital piece of code (that would be the way in which Google's algorithm works for SURE) has to be approved by several incredibly senior members of staff before it goes into production and that's without even mentioning the testing, pre-approval process amongst the technicians (of which, there are usually about 50 for each project) and risk assessments plus marketing assessments that Google puts into place for every vital code change. To suggest that some idiot could change vital code within the search engine's process without it being noticed and/or without them being sued to the point where they would be worth minus money is completely and utterly absurd.

    So again, don't.

    Oh so you can respond to what you think is an immature post from me but when I quote you with proper debate


    (Original post by 0to100)
    Lmao whoooo repped this? Nowt to do with race. All to do with money! He goes to bloody Stanford mate. And had his daddy speak for him. He's rich. A lot of black especially American men don't go to top unis for whatever reason and then don't have their dads to speak for em.

    This doesn't eliminate the fact that US and the world can be racist and probably systematically so, but if you start confusing situations where race was not involved you'll confuse the situations where race was involved smh. People use racism to ignore classism.

    If he was white and poor and didn't go to Uni he'd probably get longer than 6 mths but granted a black MIGHT get a couple yrs for the same thing. I'm sure there are cases where a black would get no time.

    Chris Brown is black and he beat Rihanna, who is also rich and powerful. And he did no time so. It's about the money.



    you've suddenly gone mute? Right, troll checked and troll blocked. If you seriously disagreed you could've simply quoted to say you disagree, or "oh grow up" or engaged in a debate with me, just like you're doing now, right? Yea keep whinging about stupidness on your own.

    But you showed a tweet to support your theory that google...a computerised search engine...is racist.

    You and OP are seriously ****ing up the otherwise valid argument that there is racism in this world. You're making it sound completely ridiculous. Smh.

    So, some of y'all are telling me that racism is not a problem in the UK and US. But its everywhere, even in google search. How can you not see it?!

    I wondered why that was the case.

    I agreed slightly with your post there, why should I debate you on it?

    Never seen you even remotely livid before. If he/she still refuses to understand then don't bother upsetting yourself.
