There are a few Google search inputs guaranteed to deliver pictures of the current Commander-in-Chief: “Donald Trump,” “US President,” and “idiot.” Yes, as Great Britain continues to mock the US leader, it seems the world’s most popular search engine has turned against him, too.As mildly humorous as it is to search “idiot” on Google Images and see varying photos of Trump, it’s also a noteworthy example of how subjective and easily impressionable Google really is. Yahoo’s search results for “idiot” don’t show Trump; interestingly, they actually show a picture of Obama among its top results. Bing does the same. And that begs the question of why Google, one of the world’s most popular engines, allows its results to be skewed by political fervor.Initial search results for "idiot' that featu

The racism we know and see in America didn't didn't just hatch out of an egg one day (although that'd be a whimsical origin story for such a villain). There is a long history (ahem, slavery) of institutionalized racism, and much of the prejudice (both structural and social) that we see today is comprised of a bunch of small factors.This is where the racist bent of Google's algorithm comes into play. As most people with computers know, when you begin each Google search there are often a series of suggest search options (or popular search options - these go hand in hand). The same goes for image searches. While in theory, the search engine is a neutral tool, the curating and ordering of suggested searches vs. popular searches is something that can be managed.It isn't in Google's best in...
