    this is a reuters issues...not a google issue. it's the way retuers displays imags inside their news articles.

    Makes me laugh how people jump to these crazy conclussions.

    I think if google decided they were going to have a secret racist policy, they'd be a little more subtle.

    Go on google and search for "widgetbucks"
    It'll say "Did you mean: Wetbacks?

    Well it did a week ago, I think Google removed it.

    It has to be intentional! Google is the business branch of the KKK!

    Google kinda sucks - no one should be surprised. I often see google news put the wrong picture next to a news article.

    Exactly. I know a lot of people aren't very fond of Google, but ... they are in it to make a profit.

    It's just a glitch in my opinion. They are a recognized world wide brand and would not intentionally do something like that.
