Google also claims that Drew is a "douche" and something known as a "githubber."

...

Must be a British thing.

I think this is a good thing. You can satisfy your curiosity in safety and anonymity. You may even learn something. At least some people aren't asking horribly racist things to each others faces.

So is "attractive and successful." Go figure.

Everyone is a little bit racist...

I didn't really see any racism in that article... mostly because he wasn't searching for races, but for nationalities.  Asking why Nigerians are so dark or Sudanese so tall isn't racist.  Where's the dumbass tag when you need it?

I like how the original website did not get the "Canadians afraid of the Dark"

That is not a real prejudice, it's a made up one from the TV show "How I Met Your Mother"

Well, I am ukrainian and I am thin, beautiful and hot, so its accurate

I'm going to guess it's because he's an idiot.  He didn't get the correlation between the Chinese and ping-pong.

"Beautiful" can be just as damaging as "loud" or "violent" when it comes to stereotyping races. Even so-called positive prejudices are the result of racism.

Racism is bad, in any form.

Also the why are Peruvians Asian results probably comes from the fact that they have a small, but politically very important Japanese immigrant population.  This became big news when the ethnically Japanese Peruvian president fled to Japan to avoid impeachment.

If only Google wasn' t holding guns to people heads, making everyone search for those things, thus turning them into autocomplete suggestions which chooses the most popular searches based on what you've typed so far.

 People really seem to care what color people are, and why.

Yes, wondering why a nation (Chile in the example) in a region of the world surrounded by dark-skinned people has so many light-skinned people is TOTALLY racist.

Stupid article

This isn't because of some Google conspiracy, and after I scrolled through something like 4,500 different searches in TFA, they pretty much said the same thing.

Being mean to people is bad. Being mean to people just because they belong to a race is bad, too. I'd rather just leave it at that.

Then you oversimplify the situation as a means of not having to think much more.

Saying that Chinese people are good at math  is racist. It's not stupid to say so, and it's not a good thing. It is as bad as negative racism? No, but positive racism is still racism and it still isn't very smart.

Wikipedia:

Racism is usually defined as views, practices and actions reflecting the belief that humanity is divided into distinct biological groups called and that members of a certain race share certain attributes which make that group as a whole less desirable, more desirable, inferior or.

Is "Chinese" a race? I wasn't aware of that.

It isn't smart, or it isn't nice?

I responded to someone referring to beauty. As in, "norweigians are beautiful" is somehow racist. No, it's not. It's a matter of opinion. I can say, "Cherokee are ugly" and that's not really racist either if it's my personal opinion. Unless, I start going around saying, "You're an ugly cherokee!" But that's mean, and being mean is not very nice.

What if, on average, Chinese people ARE better at math? Then, it's not racism. It's a statement of fact, unless we want to start saying that facts are racist. Now, if I say, "You're Chinese, so you're good at math, right?" That's not very nice, and it's not nice to be not nice to people.

The more offensive people to me are those who go through life holding every thought and action, their own and others, under a microscope next to a definition of "racism" to decide whether it's acceptable. Those people offend me much more than your average "racist".  Then you overcomplicate the situation as a means of not having to think much more, because you want your dictionary to think for you instead of just being nice to people.

Out of context it isn't.

There are Chinese people living in China who are not Chinese.

// Confusion between Chinese ethnicity vs Chinese nationality.
