Guy's tweet of his Google search has people thinking the site is racist, stock photos are stupid.

Guy's tweet of his Google search has people thinking the site is racist, stock photos are stupid.

Twitter user @iBeKabir posted a video of two Google searches that have people wondering if the site reflects a cultural bias towards race. @iBeKabir enters two search terms: "three black teenagers" and "three white teenagers." If you're feeling that the photos will be quite different, you are correct.

It's reminiscent of this comparative tweet.

Oh, 2016.

The quick Google search videoβ€”which isn't exactly aΒ newΒ discoveryβ€”has garnered a lot of responses.

As it turns out, the search results for stock photos of black teens are also questionable.

It'd be great for everyone if more stock photo options were available. There are only so many times the Internet can see a white guy frowning at a phone from 2003.

Someone searched "three Asians teenager."

Are Asian women going around without pants all the time?

Other people have pointed out that this guy might need nail clippers.

Since this video went viral, the resulting searches have changed a Β bit.

This video from Antoine Speaks explains how these search results came up.

So, it's not Google that's racist, it's the Internet?Β 

Either way, July 3rd is coming up.
