    Google answers 'Jew' when a user asks, 'Who runs Hollywood?'
    Google has promised to fix an anti-Semitic algorithm that claims “Jews” run Hollywood.

    The search engine giant removed the direct answer after outrage over the derogatory answer mounted on social media.

    When a user Googled the phrase “Who runs Hollywood?” the search engine automatically answered “Jews,” linking to a 2014 article headlined “Jews Boast of Owning Hollywood—But Slam Gentiles Who Say the Same.”

    The answer links to an article titled 'Jews Boast of Owning Hollywood—But Slam Gentiles Who Say the Same.'
    The story is from a website called the New Observer, which is filled with “news stories” boasting offensive conspiracy theories. A recent article about the Syrian refugee boy who drowned while fleeing his war-ravaged home claimed the media’s coverage of his death is “a blatant attempt to morally blackmail Europeans into accepting the nonwhite invasion of their continent.”

    The anti-Semitic answer appeared at the very top of the Google search as part of the company’s direct answers service. The search engine scours articles for commonly asked questions and presents the quick answer in a highlighted box on the search results’ page.

    Google said it is working to fix the algorithm bug.
    Google told the Guardian it is aware of the unfortunate search result and is working to remove it. A spokesperson said the article appears so highly in the search results because other websites have linked to it, giving it perceived “authority” in the algorithm.

    “We assure you that the views expressed by such sites are not in any way endorsed by Google,” the spokesperson said.

    Will they fix other stereotypes that are facts?

    Who plays NFL football?
    Why are Asians the smartest race of people?
    Has a Reggie ever won big on "Jeopardy"?
    Who run Barter Town?
