Jew on this

with 3 comments

Two friends have alerted me today to a petition demanding that google delist a certain hate site which comes up when you search for the word Jew. That site is clearly a poorly done, pathetic obnoxious hate site. Yet I have a problem with the idea of tampering with search results, even in a case like this. Google have added a note on the top of the page, which I think is just about as much as they should do.

But hey – this is the age of participatory media right? we are the internet. we can change the search results easily. All you need is Jew, Jew, Jew, Jew, Jew, Jew, Jew, Jew!

  1. Exactly. That’s the net. Same way as you could easily find a hate site by typing ‘muslim’ ‘islam’ ‘arab’ ‘black’ ‘american’ ‘french’ or whatever. Hate is hate and hate can be directed at anybody. The best way to fight hate is to come together and refrain from thinking in geographical, ethnic or religious groups. Of course that is something which needs to come about naturally and NOT by government intervention. People, go out and cross)breed!

  2. Actually, not.

    I tried all those words on google. non of them bring up a hate site on the first page. I may be paranoid, but that doesn’t mean people don’t hate me.

  3. I didn’t assume one would come up on the first page, just that there are no doubt hate sites out there. Furthermore, just because there are no doubt people out there who hate french people or british people, I don’t assume they hate ME. They don’t even know me, so how could they hate me?!
