Is Google too White? That’s the question posed by new search engine RushmoreDrive. The developers of this site say that Google is unconsciously biased in favor of sites sought out by Whites, and not those searched for by Blacks. So at RushmoreDrive, the search results tend more toward “Black” sites. This proposition seems a bit dubious to me, but I’m not really in a position to know. Here’s the site’s description:
We deliver a blend of mainstream search results plus a layer of more relevant search results influenced by the Black community. RushmoreDrive is where the Black community goes to find the best search results.
