The tech giant’s search results appear to foreground left-leaning answers to this highly controversial question, rather than giving a view which reflects the fact there is debate over this contentious issue.
America is currently locked in a passionate argument about whether some supporters of groups like Black Lives Matter are actually racist towards white people, with people from different sides of the political spectrum offering varying views. …
When we asked Google the question “can you be racist towards a white person?” it showed a comment from a blogger called Slapdash Mom.
She wrote: “Prejudice against white folks is not ‘racism’, it’s ‘prejudice’ or ‘discrimination’. Racism is something else entirely…it’s a system that acts against people of colour in this country (established through slavery and colonisation)…so their [sic.] is a difference.”
Of course blacks can and often are racist towards whites. This fancy footwork over definitions is just reality-denying wordsmithing by the politically correct, who don’t wish to be called out as racists because they in fact do treat people differently depending on their race. They also don’t want their racist government policies such as affirmative action labeled accurately.
When people traeat people of different races differently, it is a “prejudice” — literally a pre-jugdement about a person made on the basis of their race. Most everyone calls prejucide based on race “racism.”
For those who deny racism by non-whites is possible, what do you call the prejudice whereby people discriminate against whites? Isn’t it a prejudice? What fancy name do you give to that prejudice, if not “racism”? Is it morally wrong? Do you speak out against it when you see it? Do you approve of it? Do you practice it?
