Back in February, Google drew some heat when a Muslim blogger, Hind Makki, pointed out a seemingly racist “kink” in the search engine’s algorithm related to a search for “american muslims report terrorism.” Apparently Google made the incorrect assumption that Makki meant to search for “american muslims support terrorism.” Oops.

Tosh.O even recorded an “Is Google Racist?” segment poking fun at the discovery.
Now, clearly not one to shy away from tackling the tough racially-charged questions, per The Sun, Google offers the following very specific answer to the question of whether or not it is “possible to be racist to a white person“:
Just to recap before moving on, according to Google “reverse racism DOES NOT exist” because “white people have power to oppress black people because they control the system and economic structure in society.”
Oddly, Google seems to have pulled their “facts” from a Huffington Post article entitled “4 ‘Reverse Racism’ Myths That Need To Stop” which succinctly concludes: “Reverse racism isn’t real. No, really.”
Now we’re not sure about all of you, but the first “news” outlet that comes to mind when we think about hard-hitting, fact-based, impartial, investigative journalism is the Huffington Post.
In fact, all you have to do is take a quick look at the Huffington Post article to find that they cite some pretty “credible” sources in defense of their controversial conclusion on reverse racism. Well, on second thought it actually only seems to cite 1 “source” and it just happens to be the 2014 film, “Dear White People.”
