Of the 445 individuals Google has celebrated worldwide with its famed doodles, “an overwhelming 357 of those people were men–and 275 of those men were white.”
…Since their inception, there have only been 19 doodles honoring women of color – and the first woman of color to be honored with a global Doodle (one seen by users worldwide) was Ella Fitzgerald, just last year,...“White people made up 91% of global doodles and 74% of total doodles honoring people from 2010 to 2013.”
…Continually singling out the same kinds of humans again and again,..is plain lazy. It reinforces the prevailing notion that we live in a world that is white and male and straight. And yo, look around, we don’t.
