I know a lot of y’all ceased using Google a long time ago, due to its hateful policies toward whites. It would be nice if we could boycott every corporation that behaves in this manner, but since practically all of them are guilty of this, we must pick and choose.
This is Google’s “doodle” for today:
Here is what the Washington Post has to say about it:
JUST LAST month, Akilah Johnson was “surprised and overwhelmed” when she learned that she was a national finalist in the “Doodle 4 Google” contest for elementary through high school students.
Imagine how she feels now.
Akilah, a sophomore at Eastern Senior High School in Northeast Washington, has just been named Google’s big winner in the national contest, topping the 53 state and territory champions, whose work had been culled from about 100,000 student entries…
“As a child, I attended Roots [Public Charter School] and Roots [Activity Learning Center], so I was raised in the ‘Afrocentric lifestyle,’ ” Akilah told The Post, referring to educational institutions in Northwest Washington that tout “culturally relevant curriculum” and the aim to serve “the specific needs of children of African heritage.”
“One of my teachers from Roots, Baba Camera, is really [who] made me look at art in a different way,” Akilah said. “As I grew older, I … realized that the black people [who] came before us … made us into what we are today, so of course I had to include them in some way.” (“Of all the things I chose to include,” Akilah writes on Google’s site, “the six most special to me are the Symbol of Life [the ankh], the African continent, where everything began for me and my ancestors, the Eye of Horus, the word ‘power’ drawn in black, the woman’s fist based on one of my favorite artist’s works, and the D.C. flag — because I’m a Washingtonian at heart and I love my city with everything in me!”)
Apparently, those Afro-centric schools taught her that the ancient Egyptians were black, just like her. Obviously, this is not so. It’s interesting that the heroes she chose to highlight in her drawing include a terrorist (Mandela) and a mass rapist (Cosby). But Cosby can be forgiven; after all, the women he raped were almost exclusively white – which brings us to the issue of hate groups:
At their core, the black power symbol (the raised fist) is linked to the Black Panthers. According to Wikipedia:
There’s a “black lives matter” protest sign in the drawing as well. The Black Lives Matter movement has been linked to numerous violent crimes, has been involved in disruptions of other peoples’ freedom of assembly, has blockaded public highways and has explicitly excluded whites from their meetings. In other words, it’s a “hate group” if there ever was one – and this is what Google promotes.
Duckduckgo is a pretty good search engine. Maybe that’s what I should use from now on. Other suggestions are welcome.
