Racist Algorithm: Chimp Appears When Searching Google for ‘Black Person Scrolling Instagram’

Google has yet to comment on the racist search results.

A tipster informed Big League Politics that the viral video of a chimp appearing to scroll through an Instagram feed is the top result when users search “black person scrolling Instagram” on the popular search engine, and two Big League Politics journalists independently confirmed the findings.

While the left loves to find racism under every rock, it appears Big League Politics may have found an actual example of racism. A reader informed us that when searching for “black person scrolling Instagram,” the viral video of a chimp appearing to scroll through an Instagram feed using a smartphone was the top result.

Two Big League Politics colleagues, this journalist based in the Midwest, and another based on the East Coast, independently confirmed these findings.

Big League Politics recorded the search using screen recording software so it could be preserved for posterity.

It is unknown how Google’s algorithm made this racist mistake, but in 2018 Google admitted that it “fixed” part of its algorithm that mistakenly identified black people as “gorillas.”

The Verge reported:

Back in 2015, software engineer Jacky Alciné pointed out that the image recognition algorithms in Google Photos were classifying his black friends as “gorillas.” Google said it was “appalled” at the mistake, apologized to Alciné, and promised to fix the problem. But, as a new report from Wired shows, nearly three years on and Google hasn’t really fixed anything. The company has simply blocked its image recognition algorithms from identifying gorillas altogether — preferring, presumably, to limit the service rather than risk another miscategorization.

Apparently Google’s attempt to solve this issue was unsuccessful, or at least partly.

The platform also blamed an algorithmic game of chance for the reason President Donald J. Trump is often shown in embarrassing or unflattering photos when users utilize the search engine’s “Image Search” to find photos of the president when speaking to Congress late last year.

Regardless of the cause of the overtly racist search engine results, Big League Politics hopes Google will work quickly to fix this issue.

Big League Politics sent an inquiry to Google about these results. A representative replied that

“This is a very rare query and combination of words (“Instagram”, “person”, “scrolling”), and there is a lack of relevant content on the web that matches this query. Similar results appear in video search for the query ‘white person scrolling Instagram’. We apologize for any concern this may have caused, and we will continue to improve our systems to return the most relevant results possible.”

This response would seem to generate more questions than answers: Why would Google include search results including animals, specifically a chimp, when users are clearly search for “people”? It seems as though one of these words must have triggered the search engine to display the results, and the key words used to obtain the results would seem to indicate the pertinent words were “black”, “Instagram”, and “scrolling”.

We have reached out to Google for additional clarification.

YouTube Censors Videos Posted by Independent Journalist Ford Fischer of Protests Near Biden’s Inauguration

Raw journalism hurts the globalist elite.

Independent journalist Ford Fischer of News2Share is reporting that three of his YouTube videos are being censored.

Fischer announced in a Twitter post that the Google-owned video streaming service has targeted three of his videos that showed interactions between various protesters of different political stripes on Biden’s inauguration day.

Big League Politics has reported on YouTube’s hostility toward any messages that may cause the masses to doubt the official globalist corporate narrative:

Dr. Scott Atlas, who has emerged as President Donald Trump’s most credible advisor on COVID-19 policy, is being censored by YouTube.

Atlas, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institute, has spoken out consistently against the mass hysteria surrounding COVID-19. YouTube recently censored a Hoover video in which he was speaking about the lies peddled by the medical establishment during the pandemic.

“They put in a lockdown… They did not calculate at all the harms of the lockdown, the consequences of the lockdown. They did a stop COVID 19 at all costs. They used hypothetical projection models that were so egregiously wrong, far, far off. Yet they keep citing those models,” Atlas said while appearing on Uncommon Knowledge with Peter Robinson. The video is still available on the Hoover Institute website.

“All over the world, Switzerland, Iceland, Australia, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Asian countries, there is a minimal, if any, risk of children transmitting the disease, even to their parents. It’s not just that children are not at risk at all from this disease. They also do not even transmit the disease,” he continued.

“The science is really not science. It’s a fear-based and cherry-picking of certain studies. It’s very poor analysis. As I say many times, a lotta smart people are doing a lotta sloppy thinking,” Atlas added.

In addition to being targeted by Youtube, Fischer has also been targeted by other tech monopolies as well. Facebook has regularly stopped him from hosting his content on their platform for various reasons.

However, Fischer has shown that the tech giants will capitulate after enough public pressure, as he has had videos reinstated on the major platforms after being initially targeted by censorship measures.

By targeting popular journalists with large followings such as Fischer, the Big Tech giants are making themselves increasingly loathed among the masses. The behavior of these tech monopolies is setting the stage for new regulations that will break up their stranglehold or market alternatives rising that will protect freedom of speech.
