Hacker News article HARTFORD, Mass.
— The Massachusetts school system has banned Google from using its search engine for schools in the wake of a racist Google Doodle honoring the racist group Ku Klux Klan.
The district said on Tuesday it’s suspending Google from its search algorithm because it uses the racist term “niggers” to describe blacks.
The district said Google has a history of using the word “nigger” to refer to black people.
Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Google was already banned from using search in the Massachusetts school district in 2013 for the same reason.
In 2016, the district banned Google’s search engine from using schools, citing Google’s use of “Niggers,” a term that included blacks.
In 2017, the state ordered Google to stop using the term in its search results.
