Real or fake? “White people stole my car” is big on Google

white-people-stole-my-car

For the past week, the phrase “white people stole my car” has been Googled like crazy.

Perplexingly, though, there were few results yielded by this popular search and most links lead to some fairly nasty malware. Finally, the above screenshot surfaced, which seems to at least solve the mystery of why the phrase was so popular on Google. As the screenshot above implies, Googling the term “white people stole my car” results in the search engine asking if black people stole my car. Well that’s… really not cool, Google!

But is it real or fake? As of now, Google does not correct the phrase in a racially insensitive way. And while it does appear that at one time Google did, it’s entirely possible and plausible that someone misspelled “black people stole my car,” got the correction shown, and altered the search text as a prank.

I tried to re-fake a screenshot, but it seems that Google is not correcting any searches to say “black people stole my car” anymore. Bummer.

    I just re-created by spelling people wrong then fixing the search bar…wahla!

  2. Todd

    ok back in august a coworker actually googled whit people stole my car and it actually corrected it with block people stole my car i saw it with my own two eyes it wasn’t just a misspelled black it was actually done with white

  3. anti-ignorance

    wow… you can not say that plack people are more prone to commit crimes. thats just ignorant. Black people have been discriminated for years and have always been the focus of blame. like i said……………. I G N O R A N T. grow up. your race has nothing to do with the things we chose to do. To be honest. im white. and as white as they come but some of the most trust worthy people i have met including my god daughters family are black. so your skin color doesnt mean anything its all in stareotyping and how people are brought up. stop being do ignorant and grow up.

  4. All Blak

    you people are more pink than white we tied of hw u take blacks,WTF.

  5. All Blak

    Black is beautiful, how many colours du a white man change to under extreme conditions, when angry,tired…. list endless, all the blaks see frm u is dat u are more pink than white..LMAO

  6. pro-fact

    look up the racial breakdown of prison systems. look up the racial breakdown of crimes committed each year… so mr. im not ignorant say hello to facts :) it is only a “racist” statement if u take it as such… however it CAN be stated that backs are more likely to commit crimes because they fill our prison systems more frequently than any other race. It is not saying anything about anyone you know personally, simply that as a whole, they are MORE prone to commit a crime.

    Oh and one last point… Stereotypes are there for a reason.. its not like someone just arbitrarily stated a completely wrong fact about a group of people… we must remember that stereotypes are directed at an entire people, not individuals. and as im sure you are fully aware, since you are anti-ignorant, most stereotypes fall true with a group as a whole. look it up if you don’t believe me

  7. Just responding to pro-fact

    Although you did make some valid points, you, as well, have proved ignorant of the entire system in general. Stereotypes are directed at an entire people but this generalization is very discriminatory and for the most part false. Watch the documentary “Ethnic Notions” by Marlon Riggs and you will see the way Blacks were and still are portrayed in the U.S dating back to slavery. You will find that those stereotypes are deliberately placed upon Blacks in order to dehumanize them, the same way that the prison systems cage predominately minorities (esp. Blacks), making them seem more violent, animal-like, etc.

    And as far as the criminal justice system, if you really payed any attention, you would find that those systems are set up to target young, Black, urban, males. Read “A Crime by Any Other Name” by Jeffrey Reiman. He points out how that system distorts the image of Blacks in the “clown mirror” (the mirrors in fun houses) of the criminal justice system and blinds society to the real criminals: the white man you don’t see–the people in the white house, the corporate monopoly owners, fake liberal politicians, etc. Also listen to Immortal Technique’s “Poverty of Philosophy”. That might help you just a little more.

    Stereotypes are socially constructed ideas about people. And is “like someone just arbitrarily stated a completely wrong fact about a group of people” because that is how they form, by someone stating what they think and convincing others to believe them. Just because stereotypes are there, that does not make them true. I can say that white people can’t dance (well this one is kind of true from what I seen but you can easily challenge that), white people are all selfish pigs, white people think the world revovles around them (well this might be true too), white people tried to erase Black history to cover up their faults (many believe this is true), white people are devils, white people are the founders of stereotypes, racism, and any other discrimination approach, etc. I can go on and on about stereotypes; some may sound hella ignorant and some just may have some truth, but that doesn’t make them right whether they are pointed towards individuals or groups. But hey, i guess that is just the problem with people. This google image confirms that problem. Even if someone did change the word from “black” to “white”, the fact that someone believes thinks that Blacks would be more likely to do something like this is just as ignorant.

  8. pro-fact

    Hey bud, just to let you know and everyone else in the entire world, AFRICANS (black people) STARTED SLAVERY. The blacks in Africa SOLD their OWN people to the whites coming from America. So umm… maybe if blacks weren’t so self-centered and were smart enough to know that selling your own people was a bad idea, none of this would have happened. The white Americans were simply taking advantage of a system that would help get this country started in a good direction by using slavery as a start of the industrial revolution that led to the United States becoming one (if not the) largest power in the world. Slavery STARTED and BOOSTED our entire economy from day one. Yes, is it morally wrong? I believe so, however it’s not like we went over there and arbitrarily took people from Africa like many ignorant Americans believe, instead we bought what was sold from the natives of Africa. AND blacks should get over it because its not like it affects them today in ANY WAY. Blacks get MORE benefits than ANY white person could ever get. Now before you completely flip out on me, lets just take the time to step back and look at all the benefits that are SOLELY directed at blacks and NO OTHER RACE (ie. Racism). Companies around the nation give bonus’ to people who hire BLACKS (that seems racist to me) and even the NFL with the Rooney Rule (FORCING NFL teams to interview a minority candidate for coaching positions and other positions). Is the Roony Rule a terrible thing? No i don’t think so, however it does not follow the underlying foundation of this Country of having the FREEDOM to hire whoever they want (not being forced to do anything (besides laws, taxes etc.)). Having forms of aid that are not available to ALL races is EXTREMELY DISCRIMINATORY AND UNJUST. And please, no one try to even argue that because if there was a NAAWP (the white version) people would be completely up-in-arms because that is “racist”. And there are white people that are in just as bad of a situation as any black person

    I guess i should summarize my main points so that they are clearly understood and there is no room for debate of what my main objective is: To end ALL racist acts and all discrimination, there should not be ANY club, organization, scholarship committee, competition, job or any other form of aid that are exclusive to a type of race

    I have seen the Miss Black USA, NAACP scholarship funds for people of black decent only and so on and so forth. However what i have NOT seen is the Miss White USA or any other “white only” groups. I guess what i wanna say is, it shouldn’t matter whether you are white, black, purple or green. The job or scholarship or competition should declare the best person as the winner and it should not be based on your color. That also means there should not be ANY incentive that would tip the scales to favor a certain race or gender because that is unfair (ie bonus’ and such that are awarded to minorities/women) EOE has lost its definition

    I hate how whites and blacks cannot get together and create a superior country like Somalia.

  10. about time!

    Its about time people call out the minorities for being racist. how much more racist can you be besides having an exclusive group to a particular race? there should be no special “black-only” groups or any other “my-race-only” group.

  11. Katie<3xx

    Its Because,
    There Has Been A Fan Page On Facebook ‘ I lold when i saw this pic of pure racism’
    Someone typed ‘White People Stole My Car’ Into google, And google suggested
    ‘Did You Mean:Black People Stole My Car’
    Pretty Racist, But There Ya Go x

    this is not fake two weeks ago some kid in our history class showed us this but now it just doesnt work anymore i guess cuz articles got written about it or something

  20. Heather

    Trust me, google would never do this. They lean so far left it is really not even funny.

    You will see a google special logo for pretty much everything, including “National, I passed gas day”. But try to find one of any christian holiday and they are no where to be seen.

    They will do one for Kwanzaa and they will do them for various Muslim holy days, but neer a Christian logo to be found!

  21. Darren Starr

    It definitely did work, as soon as I saw it on youtube, I tried it. Type in “White people stole my ca” into youtube.It was really funny and worked for me at the time. It appears it’s been fixed now by google and some unscrupulous people have cottoned on to the fact there is a high search volume for “white people stole my car” and therefore have put up malware sites with these words dotted around it. They get paid for placing adware and the like on peoples computers. Be safe. Use a good paid for antivirus like kaspersky.com. I’ve been virus free for over 3 years and my laptop is always connected to the internet. It’s the best I’ve found. Good luck
    Darren

  22. Paul

    Its fake, you can get this by searching something like:
    “Blakc people stole my car”
    Then once its loaded just type in:
    “White people stole my car”
    Then simply take a screenshot, it will appear that you searched “White people stole my car” when in-fact you didnt.

  23. Anonymous

    I’m Surprised it didn’t say did you mean “Hispanic man stole my car” haha :)

  24. george johnston

    it should be black people or Asian people stole my car cuz yall no how them chinks like those hondas

  25. Joe

    No, it’s real, I tried doing that before Google corrected it and it corrected me, saying “black people stole my car.”

  26. bob

    From first person expiriance this used to work before it became to widespread … that was quite a long time ago, and around a week later it stopped suggesting black people stole my car… why because a very large number of people all searched for “white people stole my car” and the did you mean function is based on what other people search for.

  27. Zambian Gal

    It’s a shame…so much confusion…I guess people had 2 talk bout it eventually..americans you have alot of issues to deal with b4 you can move forward into the new decade…I hope these stereotypes die one day

  28. Atanas Stoev

    I'm white but my friends call me The black guy / he came from a palm tree / big nigga etc. Is that racist?

  29. Pedro Nicolau

    there is only one race the human race and that all.

  30. Jeff Hepner

    you can tell its faked cause BLACK is in bold letters there for someone put the phrase "BLACK PEOPLE STOLE MY CAR" and misspelled the word BLACK on purpose.

  31. Wassim Belfatmi

    Fake, Google would never do something like that..
    He did the next: blck people stole my car and there came: did you mean black people stole my car..

  32. Lucia Horea

    no it's not. gypsies fuck up, purposefully, people avoid them. natural. you try to live with them for, I don't know, 1000 YEARS. and then tell me not to "discriminate" you fartface.

  33. Anthony Nonyabizz

    who ever the hell is being a little cry baby and wrote "Googling the term “white people stole my car” results in the search engine asking if black people stole my car. Well that’s… really not cool, Google!" who ever typed that needs to shut the fuck up and quit acting like a cry baby… have a sense of humor and get a fucking life.. that's hilarious.

  35. Tamirra Brown

    Honestly. I cannot understand half of what you said. Sounds like you're saying something good but just to be sure, you wanna try retyping it in English?

  36. Lolade Olagunju

    it is in english………oh i see why u dnt get it!……..ur tew blind nd stupid to get it……….OUCH! i noe its harsh but dats wat u get wen u write smethin mean bout other people's comments………..BIATCH

  37. Tamirra Brown

    Wow you're ignorant. Again, learn how to spell. This is NOT a text message. Also, come up with better insults. "biatch" is grade school kids.

  38. Lolade Olagunju

    yh dats y i used it on u………plus……….i DO noe hw to spell jst tryin 2 cme down to ur level………hpe u dnt mind.

  39. Tamirra Brown

    You clearly typed like crap before i commented. Don't blame me for your stupidity. Anyway, i do not wish to converse with you any longer, you obviously are a child. Once again, please learn how to spell…while you're at it, learn to use proper grammar and punctuation as well.

  40. René Renégade Dussault

    you said you couldn't fake it.. well I just did it, was pretty easy.. but it shows your search too: Showing results for black people stole my car. Search instead for balck people stole my car. just inverse the a and the l in black.. and then erase the 1st word.. replace by white, then phtoshop your screenshot to hide your search instead for balck people etc..

  41. Smokeman 'Ak' Jay-Are

    Its not fake I typed in "white people stole my car" in the google search engine a loooooooomnnnnnnngggggg time ago, before google corrected there mistakes, and I was corrected with "did you mean black people stole your car". I don't care for all this racist shit that everyone seems to be on I'm talking facts. THIS IS TRUE! WORD TO GOD!

  42. Ben Sarah

    it was actually real, at least a few years ago, google is just a racist bitch :)

  43. Anonymous

    either way black would be in bold kuz it's correcting the word white. Like, a year and a half ago, my friend told me to search this and the same thing. But now google changed up, so it doesn't do it anymore. it doesn't even say "Did u mean ____" anymore. On any searches.

  44. Anonymous

    No! you guys are misunderstanding! You're speaking of google like it's a fucking person. "No, Google wouldn't do something like that". Its not like when u make a mistake on google, there's a guy sitting there that goes "hmm, looks like they were trying to say this" Google is a search engine. Clearly, black people and stealing were more associated on previous google searches. Fucking Duh. U guys needa understand how it works. But anyway, this use 2 work like a year or 2 ago. My friend showed me. But now Google doesn't even say "Did u mean _____" anymore. For any search. So it's fucking over. STFU.

  45. Justine Lerato

    you don have to explain how to do it wat matters is your not a racist an it might be fake an might not but its ok better bury it

  46. Garry Singh

    Dumbasses. You put in the search box "Blakc people stole my car" and it'll correct it to "Black people stole my car". After that, you go over to the search bar and erase "Blakc people stole my car" and re-write it to "White people stole my car". :P

  47. Afreen Zaman

    LOL! People jsut calm down! it's just a mistake and it's really funny so chilax!

  48. Alexander James Phillips

    blacks not in bold letters its showing where the correction was… and no one mispelled black… are you some kind've idiot?

  49. Jeff Hepner

    wow dumb ass where the correction is, is in bold letters so yea wrong on saying it's not in bold letters for one……. and all he did was misspell the word black then when it came up with the word black for it being misspelled they replaced the word black with white……. hence giving the illusion that it said one thing, and it meant something else….. people do this every day to see how people will react do your research before calling someone an idiot………..

  50. Danny Baxter

    'I tried to re-fake a screenshot, but it seems that Google is not correcting any searches to say “black people stole my car” anymore. Bummer.'..
    no, google is correcting the search,.. just type in 'Blackk people stole my car',..it will then show you results for 'Black people stole my car' but will give you the hyperlink to search using the misspelt 'Blackk people stole my car'.. click on that and then it will ask you.. did you mean 'Black people stole my car',.. with 'Black' in bold.. so yeah, google still does it, so you can fake it from this screen :-P

  51. Danny Baxter

    look again,. the word 'black' is in bold italic,.. just subtle… and google still does it, if you misspell black and then select to view the misspelled word search.

  52. Dan Valders

    R U tired of the "Double standard"? No more PC, it has caused more problems than anything else to white/black relations. "DO U FEEL ME" That is the current by/word of blacks> They have ruined any chance of a decent converstion with their STUPID talk. AND sure enough the young whites have picked it up and follow it. What has happened to correct speech?

  53. Taryn Beuning

    Bahahah! Omg! Tamirra wasnt even saying anything bad! Your spelling is atrocious and it would make more sence if you spelled everything right. I can't even understand it but it looks like its suppose to be positive.

  54. Taryn Beuning

    Actually I have heard of people doing this back in the day and that was the correction. Googles corrections are based on what people search the most or to correct spelling. So black people stole my car was more popularly searched than white people stole my car therefore it was corrected. But because it no longer does that, I am guessing that google noticed the publicity it was getting and stopped the auto correction. That or because wihte people stole my car became more popular there was no need to try to correct it anymore. Just a guess.

  55. Matte J Forte

    IT did it because people probably googled Black people stole my car more then White people stole my car. So then it would automatically correct it like when your typing in The Catcher in the Rye but if you wrote Catcher in the Rice then they would be like do you mean RYe? because its a lot more common. Googles not racist its the people who continuously looked up black people stole my car who are! then it probably got changed because alot of people started looking it up to see that funny correction but so many people typed it in now if you wright black people stole my car it will probably be like do you mean white people stole my car?

  56. Nick Restrepo

    WOW. Search results are a reflection of what people are searching. At some point the phrase "black people stole my car" was naturally more searched than 'white people stole my car'. OBVIOUSLY the program is going to try to be helpful in correcting what is the trend. I swear people in general are really close to thinking on the level of fucking monkeys.

  57. New Ton

    if u search some wrong it does come on bold go on google and try it

  58. Tyesha Thompson

    You are a true idiot. Keep making up opinions and presenting them as facts. It gives us intelligent blacks something to laugh at Constantly!!! Lololol Idiot!

  59. Jay Frost

    Taryn Beuning or they searched blck people stole my car then typed in the search bar white people stole my car
    use your brain.

  60. Thea Dasca

    I have to say that, u black people THINKS too much! , u give so much F! and by the way, I don't mean to be offensive. but doesn't the statistic show more black thief? why does it bother? if u put on gold teeth and seek big ass everyday, u will end up jacking cars. I am not racist, but its quite rare to see any black person in a good manner.

  61. Adam Case

    People are idiots that think this is real. Look, it is simple how its faked: The person mistyped "Black". Like "Blaek people stole my car", Google asked him if he mean't black, then before taking the screen shot just changed his search result in the top to say white. Simple and fake.

  62. James Johnson

    Actually Adam that's not how it happened. If you cleared at your cache at the time it was happening (I tested it the day it happened) and typed in the correct sentence it still showed the same results after Google cookies were removed from the browser. Google's suggested terms are partially developed by commonly searched terms and as you pointed out misspellings but not by one person faking the system. One theory is that "black and white" are so interchangeable in terms of differences that it populated that term as part of the algo." The other and more likely possibility is that a blogger or a few bloggers typed in the terms a bunch of times and reported on it, at which point more and more people typed in the same term…..If you want to test what I'm saying find a really popular internet meme in the future that says "Black" in it and then type the string with the word "White" in it's place….then look at Google suggest….

  63. Riley Fletcher

    Or it could be that black is in bold letters as it is being replaced to be used as the correct word, i.e it is taking the place of white, so it is in bold letters

  64. Tony Tone P

    You talk about double standard, I know i'm a bit late in the topic but " DO YOU FEEL ME" is more of a modern day translation of "DO YOU CATCH MY DRIFT" that was used by many whites in the 60's 70's. Every generation and every culture adopts their own slang that evolves and spreads within society. To say "STUPID talk" is showing a lack of understanding of society in general and it has also ruined your chance at a decent post.

  65. Zach Foster

    Actually Jeff, that's not true. put in 'neverland peter pen' its not misspelled and it will tell you to correct pen to pan.

  66. Zach Foster

    With 'pan' in bold. Or I guess we can all just make up how stuff works on the fly.

  67. Harley Skewis

    ROFL its fuckin fake I can make that with paint on my comp its piss easy.

  68. Harley Skewis

    another way to tell its fake is its not showing what came up under the did you mean like google normally does.

  69. James Johnson

    Harley, I know for a fact it wasn't fake, I tested it the day the meme broke and Google has since changed the "did you mean" display, this post is over a year old. The same thing was working the other day for a Mitt Romney meme. I don't know why so many people thought this was fake, at one point even the search giant addressed how odd did you mean sentences show up based off a bunch of variables, most notably a bunch of searches correlating to the search being conducted.

  70. Brian Lankford

    That's because statistically blackies steal more cars then whites :) hahaha silly black folks.

  71. Nitish Varma

    No, in that case it would also read – "Search instead for blaack people stole my car" underneath if you misspelled black as blaack or accordingly for other alternatives.

  72. Jeff Hepner

    Nitish Varma no you are refering to the new google, this comment is based on how the old one was ran. there for it doesn't even ask did you mean any more

  73. Jeff Hepner

    Nitish Varma yes like i said you are reffering to the new google in the old version i did not ask to search instead the misspelled one, that is why i know it was just a hoax

  74. Jeff Hepner

    Riley Fletcher see it is people like you that make something so childish and turn it into something so controversial this is plain to see was ment to be a hoax and a joke, i don't understand how people can be so blind to how this world really is, i don't believe people should still be worried about these matters, things will never change if we single people out we are all equal and should start seeing it that way…. stop arguing over childish things like this, and just let people be stupid that choose to keep racism around….

  75. James Johnson

    It would Autumn you are correct but I tested it at the time of first report and it worked, in fact many top tech sites also reported on it. It's not really a controversy though if you look at how Google was creating search comparisons at the time a lot of opposites Black/White, Clean/Dirty were being used…since then the auto correct has gotten better but there was a funny Mitt Romney one the other day if you typed "Mitt Romney will win" it would bring back "Mitt Romney will lose" as the "did you mean" result. LOL.

  76. Sarah Davis

    This is just another retarded opportunity for some whiny person with nothing better to do with their time to cry racist. Then for all the others to explain possibilities of why it was like this and not meant to be racist. We are all adults here people. GROW UP. Not everyone is going to speak proper English, or spell correctly (though they have spell check available to them and they insist on doing it anyway), or even speak the English language. How about we worry about our own short comings before we attack someone else for theirs?

    Tyesha Thompson Dear Ms. Thompsom
    Your reply would carry far more weight if you could only present a grammatically correct sentence.Especially for intelligent blacks.

  80. Ashley James Lee

    is it possible since there are no articles or anything for google to find on 'white people stole my car' it asked if you made a mistake because there are several articles including the title 'black people stole my car'…im more curious on who came up with the idea to google it in the first place.

  81. James Johnson

    Ashley, there are a ton of tech sites that posted the meme the day it happened, I also tried it (no I didn't write the article) the day it happened and it came up as the article states. Google removed the result within 24 hours. I do want to know who Google's it in the first place. Perhaps someone really saw white people steal their car :)

  88. Marc Schiffres

    How to create this fake:
    Google search "back people stole my car".
    Noticing the word "people," Google will try to correct "back" to "black".
    Replace the word "back" in the search bar with "white".
    Do NOT hit search/enter.
    Screencap (or if you're stupid, photograph) the search, leaving out the part that says "Search instead of 'back people stole my car'".

    Congratulations! You've created a fake Google autocorrect!

  89. John Blatzheim

    I really don't get how people still don't understand how Google works. There is no person, board, team of people or whatever the hell else making decisions about what comes up when you search something, not even about what to suggest instead of your search. If this is authentic it's because Google's algorithm picked up on a trend. Sorry, but sometimes it's just reality that's "racist" lol.

  90. Cody Michaels

    and I bet its only black people that complain or cry about suing google for something that's auto corrected your right its tottally googles fault lol bunch of dumbasses.

  91. William Bybel

    This picture is at least 4-5 years old. And the same story came out about how insensitive it was. A uick good search of this would have told you that this was been resolved by google and that there were other terms less appealing that came up depending on your search query! Please get with the times. you are 5 years behind the rest of the world.

  92. Justin Ellis

    Why are blacks so sensitive about this. We don't get mad when you call us Cracka…White boy…Bigot…But when someone implies that blacks steal more cars than whites you get butt hurt. Which its actually a proven fact. How many white people do you see on "Bait car". Mexicans and whites take the same racist comments. Why don't you learn to grow the fuck up and get over it. This isn't the Rosa Parks Era. Or how about stop doing stereotypical black things. Every other race takes heat. But when someone says something about black people here comes Jessie Jackson.

  93. Nate Wrigley

    it is real, when it first came out about it being there… i tried it with my friends, and thats exactly what happened… google fixed it now tho,

  94. Ashley Foley

    see when all the white people die in this country…..america will crumble cause black people are lazy, car stealing, welfare check grabbing mooches!

  95. Jonny B. Goode

    I tried it, it didn't work. I then typed "Lizard men stole my car" and the first link that came up said "Obama stole my car keys"….interesting.

  99. Karch Amadeo

    This was before the search update. Easy to do really. Mispell black (enter something like blak). Search and google will change it to correct spelling. Then erasy your entered text and put white. Its anoying and somehwhat sad how few of you made a post on this.

  100. Elizabeth Fox

    Mr. Valders, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having read it. I award you no like, and may God have mercy on your soul.

  106. Destiny Hines

    ive seen more white redneck trailer trash steal cars than black ppl we just like shootin niggas lol but u sound stupid dude like grow up what you said is not funny so no hahaha and ppl like u are going to hell and btw i dont got nothin against white ppl this guy just pissed me off

  107. Destiny Hines

    I honestly thought it was kinda funny yes it was fake so therefore it was a joke but anyone would steal a car if they're poor or broke or just has a stealing problem that goes for black white mexican asian indian mixed race if your thirsty u do shit like that come on now lets get real people learn to say haha and keep it rolling and not be so drama filled and as for the white people that feels that's true… well I will let god tell you all. I don't have to.

  108. Jason Gerard Clauss

    Google's job is to provide accurate searches, not promote an ideology. If one search is more common than the other whether due to bigotry or just facts, that is going to be the suggested search.

    2 things.. @Taryn: you spelled sense wrong.. no such thing asun sence.. there is only since, sense, and cents.. and @lolade: just the fact that you can spell vice versa shows that you are intelligent, why hide it by typing that way?? You should let people see that you're smart

  114. Eliezer Molina

    And google "a black man went postal" and google will ask "do you mean a white men went postal"
    Hahahaha silly white people lol

    Thats sarcasm for all you racist bigots

  115. Debra Orsburn Tighe

    they spelled black wrong and it made google ask do you mean? then they went back in the search and put white instead of black. just more people trying to start race issues. just goes to show you how easy it is to blame white people for everything.

    Dan and all these other racist bigots, I really, really do appreciate you, by you being racist it basically shows your true colors. Its ashamed so many people have hate towards black folks, meanwhile you come from us! Racism needs to stop, but i love how you racists make yourselves look stupid, if you don't believe me just watch, don't hate on the archetype :)

    Ok, here's what happened – The person type the word "black" wrong so that correction would pop up, then they erased the search bar and then typed in "white people stole my car" just to make it seem like Google was correcting it. In the end the person that made this picture is Racist and should be a little more educated. Doesn't matter what race you are there are people of all races that steal cars. Just saying.

  131. Eric Nystrom

    Statistically speaking: The amount of white people arrested for sex offenses and offenses against children is far higher than black people. I'd take car theft over that any day.

  140. Morgan Cheek

    That's not right at all, white people steal cars just as much if not more than "blackies" as you so call it. And not to mention white people are way more stupid when they steal cars, I hear and see white people doing to dumbest stuff just to try and steal cars and your not going to get away with it so why even try, do you like thinking your invincible and then ending up in jail over your ignorance?

  141. Natasha Rickard

    Whoooooo gives a flying f***! This happened SO long ago. The fact that it was changed the word from white to black, is simply just because more people have searched "Black people stole my car," so Google "Corrected" them thinking that is what they meant because it has been searched much more….. and yes, it also can be faked.

    And for all the people making postings calling Google racists? It makes you look stupid, it was a simple mistake, boo hoo.

  142. Carls Barkley

    Why does it have to be white and black?? Can't we all agree that we hate ANYBODY who would steal our car?? I'm white and if I learned my car was stolen by a white dude… I'm not going to be ANY happier or relieved than if it was stolen by a black dude.

  143. Simphiwe Gift Nxumalo

  144. Will Uriah Regalado

    There is a fake kind of google where it allows you to do this.
    It will give you a option of what the, "did you mean" will say.
    This case, someone told it to say Black People Stole My Car.
    mhmm

  145. Jon Ryan

    its fake, more than likely just searched black people stole my car and misspelt black. then typed it in hahaha. derp

  146. Carl Smith

    type it in as "blacke people stole my car" and the correction gives you "black people stole my car" it's a fairly easy fake if somewhat amusing.

    All you had to do (back in the day) was misspell black with "blak" people stole my car, then when it correccts it to say, "Do you mean black people stole my car?" then just type white in the search box, but don't press enter, then screen shot. Easy as that.

  182. James Brennan

    I'm with you Tamirra Brown. People used to talk like that about two years ago. It was a trend as people switched from texting to Facebook as it became more popular. This was when folks asked "r u on facebook?"… now it's "are you still on facebook?" ha ha!

  183. Kalynn Kayde Scherbakov
