During this time of unspeakable tragedy in the wake of the recent deaths of two black men in Louisiana and Minnesota and several cops, Facebook has decided to support the D list version of the Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter. Facebook showed support by sending out a message of support, #BlackLivesMatter.
The post stated,
“#AltonSterling and #PhilandoCastile’s lives mattered. Black lives matter. We need racial justice now. We’re devastated by the senseless deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. Today Googlers held vigils in their memory, and in memory of all those like them whose lives have been cut short unfairly. We stand in solidarity with the fight for racial justice. #BlackLivesMatter.”

The social media post has received 10,500 retweets and 9,440 favorites. But not everyone is exactly happy about Google’s behavior.
“Okay @google, the next step is action” said blogger Anil Dash. “What about suspending your hosted services (and Dropcam sales) to PDs under federal investigation?”
“All lives matter. Stop pushing the race baiting” replied another user, later being told to, “take that sh*t elsewhere” by a Black Lives Matter protester no less.
Google has been showing a political bias lately and they’ve also been receiving backlash because of it. They didn’t show homepage memorials for D-Day and Memorial Day. Some Google users have even reported finding Donald Trump campaign letters in their spam box when they did not put it their. They have even tried to hide anti Hillary Clinton search terms from their search engine.
WikiLeaks editor Julian Assage said,
“Google is directly engaged in Hillary Clinton’s campaign. [They are] personally at the top aligned with Hillary Clinton’s election campaign and almost certainly once Hillary Clinton becomes president, those people in Google, like Jared Cohen, will be placed into positions around the new Clinton presidency.”
If Hillary is elected President all you have to do is wait and see whose placed in nominated positions by her to see which companies and politicians are clearly in her pocket.
