Google and images of Michelle Obama

Can we bring some common sense into this debate?  This image is currently the top result when you type “Michelle Obama” into Google Images:


This repulsive, racist image comes from this page Google is trying so hard to defend.  Is this juvenile, offensive forum really the definitive source for presidential images?


If the page in question were some authoritative source for images, I could understand Google having a dilemma. But this is a crappy, offensive forum.  One of the top comments in the forum is “This nasty bitch was yet ANOTHER reason I didn’t vote for nObama: I didn’t want her representing this country as First lady.”

If I created a search engine that ranked this page up top, I’d reconsider my algorithm instead of “buying ads” to defend it.
