France is asking Google to ban the word “Jew” from the engine’s instant searches. Well, it isn’t quite as it seems: a French judge has asked a third party to resolve a dispute between the search giant and anti-racism groups that object to Google suggesting users add “Jew” to name searches. The matter is that Google’s autocomplete option suggests what search people might want depending on algorithms of previous searches. It turned out that in France, users keep asking if famous people are Jewish. For example, if you tap Justin Bieber, the autocomplete feature will suggest the word “Jew” in French.
According to SOS Racisme, the Movement against Racism and for Friendship between Peoples and the International League Against Racism and anti-Semitism, the search giant is unintentionally infringing the law. The groups brief explained that the search engine’s users were confronted every day by the unsolicited and almost systematic association of the word “Jew” with the names of celebrities in the world of politics or show business.
Although most people wouldn’t have thought it was bad, because there’s nothing better to know how important your religion is amongst the celebrities, this undoubtedly doesn’t help racial harmony. This may be in case right-wing nut jobs hope to prove that there is a jewish conspiracy to conquer the world and ban bacon butties can identify their targets.
According to French legislation, it is against the law to record someone else’s ethnicity in a database. That’s why Judge Martine Provost-Lopin a week ago accepted a request from all parties to appoint a third party to find a solution. The next hearing was scheduled for June 27.
In response, Google France representative explained that the search engine didn’t decide on these requests in a manual way. Instead, all requests shown by autocomplete option have previously been searched for by other Internet users.

|Jews aren't the only semetic people on the planet.|
|I tested it, and you must type the first letter J after the celebritiets name to get Juif or french of Jewish to autotype. Therefore no one will get it popping up just by typing a name. Also if the internet is a "database" then French law would forbid religion entirely from the internet if it had a picture of a person or people or a written name. As you can see this is a farce by a censor happy group trying to abuse the law. A racist computer algorithm?? I've heard these organizations have a history of forced censorship of truth. Such as this example. If people weren't previously often using those search terms the algorithm wouldn't suggest it. It is just a true fact. No??|
|I believe jew or jewish refer to people not religion.|
If jews are only a religion and not a people than what are they doing in Israel? Judaism is the word for the religion, not Jew or Jewish. Therefore the Jewish anti racism group does not know this?? The French Judge does not know this?? Google does not know this?? So there's zero legal merit and the judge refered it to a 3rd party to decide?? Wow I guess he's a crooked judge, then again what's new about that?
|If they want to be fair about why not include the words black, white, yellow, red, Latino, Asian, and many others? Allot of word have derogatory counter meanings and we know then..|
Granted history of this world and what people have done to each other is horrendous; BUT words like the N word, etc can not even be used by any one other than Blacks. If use by non Black they are called racists, etc. YET you hear Black throwing down this word every where in daily conversation and even in the music played on the radio.
Instructors in Universities giving History lesson can not even use derogatory words to show how it was during certain times in History.
This is being way too Politically Correct and certain groups of people being way too sensitive. How are people going to learn about what happened so they themselves do not perpetrate that behavior in the future if they are not shown it isn't right by omitting by censoring History.
Case in point; Japan they do not teach history as to what really happened in their schools. They teach they were the victim of the war and people who leave Japan for another country and or another university then learn what really happened. Japan isn't the only country that does this.. Even in the United States this has happened to a large degree.
Just look at history books and you will see allot of it either changed or omitted. Just as a school student who was the first president of the United states and most of not all can not tell you; because it isn't taught in school's.
|But... but... searching for Jews this way was so much more convenient than the old way of having to look in all the attics one by one. This will cost an absolute fortune in shoe leather and over-time payouts, man.|
