The world-famous search engine Google has come under extensive fire for using substandard algorithms that promote second-rate websites, lethal search topics, and racial discrimination. The tech giant is all geared up to get rid of content that may harm its authenticity and legitimacy. However, another extreme result about race and gender has recently appeared on the search engine, sparking a fiery debate among the masses.
The recent dispute raging topic, which has become a concern for many, is the top search result for “Are black people smart?”. For most of the users, Google shows the answer to this question as; “Blacks Are the Least Intelligent Race of All”. The search, most of the time, comes out from a murky unauthentic WordPress blog.
Apart from being the top search, most of the people are seeing such posts endorsed in the “knowledge box” and its messages are being acknowledged and sanctioned by Google.
The search engine has warned all of its users in a smallprint reading that “featured snippets reflect the views or opinion of the site from which we extract the snippet, not that of Google”. But, for the tech giant as big as Google, is it worthy that the information being seen by millions is bogus, shady, and unreflective of the company’s policy?
