Good example of white privilege: white people don’t have to mention white anything. It’s just assumed. This is reflected in the search results.

lol it’s simple:

White people don’t mention “white” because it’s “assumed”. But PoC write about white and black so the images are more likely to show up.

(example: If you post a picture of Jesus from 17th century germany, do you (if you are white) tag it as:

“White Jesus”

or just

“Jesus”?

So if you were to simply put people, only images of the assumed white people would show up?

I haven’t checked but try it. I bet you’ll see mostly white people.

“It’s a bunch of stock photos of white people, usually with a token minority person stuck in the picture.?

Good point – i wouldn’t have thought to double check my assumption by googling “people”. I appreciate you verifying it.
