Google has been accused of running a racist search engine after it was revealed that users of the search engine were not allowed to search for ethnic groups.
The company said in a statement that it was taking steps to prevent the use of racist or offensive language on its site.
However, a petition on the Change.org website calling for Google to be banned from the UK has garnered more than 100,000 signatures.
It reads: “Google is a global leader in the search technology industry, with billions of users around the world, and yet we are seeing it systematically discriminate against minority communities on its search engine.”
We demand that Google stop this abuse of power.
“The petition says that the company has an obligation to “act with integrity, to promote a culture of trust and equality between its users and staff, and to remove and remove the content that would encourage such behaviour”.
However, Google is not the only search engine that is accused of racism.
Google also runs Bing, Yahoo, and MSN, all of which have their own racial discrimination policies.
Google has since apologized for its racism and promised to remove its discriminatory policies from its search results.
