Can you imagine if the cartoon had featured a Jewish person with a yarmulke on his head picking a Black and Mexican pockets? All hell would have broken loose! There would have been sensitivity classes, and a trip to the Holocaust Memorial, after all, the company is owned by Jewish people.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I 've also used this pictures of Bush, when Blacks got mad with the Obama one.One is just as bad as the other one,but for a major bank that is Jewish owned, a picture that I mentioned previously, would drive them craze, after all, they're supposed to want ALL business from whomever that can get!

Here's a good example!

Well, in todays "politically correct" world, one has to keep their thoughts to themselves lest that get called ,racist, bigots, and God only knows what else.
Do you know that the word "JEW" is offensive?

Notice that no other group is protected like the Jewish people are by Google!

" An explanation of our search results

If you recently used Google to search for the word “Jew,” you may have seen results that were very disturbing. We assure you that the views expressed by the sites in your results are not in any way endorsed by Google. We’d like to explain why you’re seeing these results when you conduct this search.

A site’s ranking in Google’s search results relies heavily on computer algorithms using thousands of factors to calculate a page’s relevance to a given query. Sometimes subtleties of language cause anomalies to appear that cannot be predicted. A search for “Jew” brings up one such unexpected result.

If you use Google to search for “Judaism,”“Jewish” or “Jewish people,” the results are informative and relevant. So why is a search for “Jew” different? One reason is that the word “Jew” is often used in an anti-Semitic context. Jewish organizations are more likely to use the word “Jewish” when talking about members of their faith. The word has become somewhat charged linguistically, as noted on websites devoted to Jewish topics such as these:

http://www.jewishworldreview.com/cols/jonah08...

Someone searching for information on Jewish people would be more likely to enter terms like “Judaism,”“Jewish people,” or “Jews” than the single word “Jew” In fact, prior to this incident, the word “Jew” only appeared about once in every 10 million search queries. Now it’s likely that the great majority of searches on Google for “Jew” are by people who have heard about this issue and want to see the results for themselves.

The beliefs and preferences of those who work at Google, as well as the opinions of the general public, do not determine or impact our search results. Individual citizens and public interest groups do periodically urge us to remove particular links or otherwise adjust search results. Although Google reserves the right to address such requests individually, Google views the comprehensiveness of our search results as an extremely important priority. Accordingly, we do not remove a page from our search results simply because its content is unpopular or because we receive complaints concerning it. We will, however, remove pages from our results if we believe the page (or its site) violates our Webmaster Guidelines, if we believe we are required to do so by law, or at the request of the webmaster who is responsible for the page.

We apologize for the upsetting nature of the experience you had using Google and appreciate your taking the time to inform us about it.

Sincerely,
The Google Team

P.S. You may be interested in some additional information the Anti-Defamation League has posted about this issue at http://www.adl.org/rumors/google_search_rumor... . In addition, we call your attention to Google’s search results on this topic "

Bloombugg is the worst mayor that NYC ever had in it's entire history, in short he is a thief' robbing the poor. just take notice how he came out of no where and increased public transportation.

And he did not even spare the disabled, i guess maybe because he is nothing but a worthless greedy Jew! too bad Hitler is not still around to take care of this non compassionate old rich by stealing from poor people stinking bastard.
