Google’s autocomplete feature is shocking too about black men

You're wrong, Google - Black Men - Racism. It Stops With Me

After the success of the UN Women autocomplete campaign there is now a new version. This time it is from the Australian Racism. It Stops With Me campaign.
And again everybody knows what it is about. Real suggested search terms about black men are shown.

What is often forgotten that these aren’t the answers from Google. These are the most used search terms entered by users.
And you may ask yourself, and the company in Mountain View Californië, if this is a nice feature of Google.
What do you think? Is it good to know what other people search for?

“You’re wrong, Google.
Combating racism requires reflection on channels that can poison your mind and judgement.”
