There is sudden irritation, perhaps even outrage at Google because the search term "American Inventors*" shows mostly black inventors, which people are interpreting as propaganda on the part of that search engine. I think that is unlikely.
First, I think Google is capable of skewing the results of things, but they are more clever than that. They aren't going to do obvious stuff.
Secondly, Bing and Duckduckgo return similar results, perhaps not so bad. It is
therefore unlikely that any of them are intentionally skewing the
results. What is likely happening is that people do not often search
for "American Inventors" as a category, they search for an individual
inventor. But people do search for "Black American Inventors," as
they are looking for these lists for school papers, self-esteem based
programs, whatever. Except for George Washington Carver, those names
are not going to come to mind very quickly, unlike Thomas Edison, or
Alexander Graham Bell. Those search results will be included the general pile
of "American inventors" because the algorithm will see them as a near
relative. It's not a put-up job by Google or the others, it is a natural
result from a data base where there actually aren't that many black
inventors, but people want to find some.
Caveat: As the job of the Assistant Village Idiot is to notice the obvious when everyone else is making things too complicated, I am treading into territory that is not my assigned task. Adjust your estimate of my credibility on this accordingly.
*There's something about screwy results for "white couple" and some similar things, but I haven't checked that out and didn't do any of those searches. I'm guessing something similar is occurring.
