    In cases like "white couple" many of the images have a title similar to "Black and White Couples"; "white couple" is a 50 % match, so it's bound to show up.

    Also, Google doesn't know what an image actually looks like; they search for text clues. Hot news items that contain 'white' and 'couple' are, not surprisingly, about unusual, "newsworthy" things such as an interracial couple having a white baby etc. So, those are the images that will show up first. If you scroll further down than the video did, past the news items, you'll see loads of white couples.

    There also seems to have been a lot of discussion since 2017 about the alleged replacement of whites on Google Images, so a lot of the images connected to that debate will be repeated in a search made in 2019.

    On a final note, I doubt there are many articles mentioning the phrase "white couple", while "black couple" is just fine, but I think that has more to do with current political correctness in the news than Google's search algorithm.

    Repeat the search with "European History" and tell me again it's just accidential. It's not.

    Also more detailed searches for German/Danish/whatever people (not couples) mix in blacks a lot, while searches for Tibetian people or whatever show a lot of accurate results. The algorithms are not harmless, and they're not neutral either. It's a long known fact that google manipulates search results, for images and text, several studies have proven that tech has (been teached) a bias.

    Yes, it's not just "white couple", but also "European history" and "European art" and a dozen other search terms. What you get to see are pictures from Wakanda "we wuz kangs" black washing fantasts and SJW blogs and articles which "attack the myth of there having ever existed an all-white, non-secular Europe" and the images are irrelevant (they'll show a painting depicting a black slave girl in the colonies, for instance) and never back up the claim, it's extremely ridiculous.

    I don't want to repeat myself, but I think the points made in my previous post cover the other search terms fairly accurately as well.

    Anyhow. I don't know what results you get from "European history", but I personally got very, uh, white images on top. Interestingly, this may have to do with the Google algorithm; although I'm not sure which facts you refer to, an algorithm bias I do know of concerns "personalized" search results, where the results depend on our own unique browsing history.

    Google have also been accused of favoring their own products in search results, but other than that I'm unaware of any "facts" of their bias. Accusations? Loads of them. But facts?

    Now, Google aren't the greatest thing since sliced bread or anything, and there may be a bias, but Occam's razor is important for clarity: We don't need a supposedly biased Google to prove that the Western world is currently pretty keen on promoting blacks, gays and immigrants. It's obvious enough as it is anyway.

    Google censorship is almost as bad as YouTube's. I can't tell you how many videos from Amren have been unavailable for me to watch on my phone and once I've later saved and uploaded them to my drive they are suspiciously slow with horrible audio. Google omits tons of search results as well. If there was a better search engine I'd use it but so far all of them seem to be total annoying liberal garbage.
