Good Thing I Did A Little Research For Once Or I Might Actually Think Google Is Racist
Call the online authorities! Ring the 'Black Lives Matter' bell! For the love of God, will someone get Al Sharpton on the phone! Jesse Jackson, where art thou'?!? Nothing signals racial unrest quite like vague image searches on the internet! Whatever you do, do NOT double check the legitimacy of this search engine prejudice! Everyone knows the biggest enemy of technological racism is fact finding.
I don't want to burst anyone's outrage bubble, but nearly every picture that popped up for 'unprofessional hairstyles for work' and featured a black women was from a Pinterest page unaptly titled 'It's Ridiculous To Say That Black Women's Natural Hair Is Unprofessional'. Whew! Crisis averted. Black women were the ones that actually - albeit unintentionally - associated themselves with unprofessionalism in the workplace. Oh, the irony! I'll tell you, that image search can be a son-of-a-bitch sometimes. Other than porn, you never know what kind of arbitrary photographic connection the internet will find. Sometime you are just trying to get dolled up for work without appearing offensive and stumble upon blatant racism, and sometimes you are quickly searching for blatant racism and you stumble upon an unprovoked defense against blatant racism. It's a problem as old as the incessant need to quickly find random pictures that illustrate your point regardless of where they came from!
