Google and YouTube put a black ribbon on their home page in the US
NEW YORK (TIP): Google stands in support of racial equality, the tech giant’s Indian-American CEO Sunder Pichai has said, expressing solidarity with the African-American community in the US in wake of protests sparked by the death in police custody of African-American George Floyd.
Google and YouTube on Sunday put a black ribbon on their home page in the US, showing solidarity for protests against the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, in police custody.
“We stand in support of racial equality, and all those who search for it,” the message read on the Google home page.
The same message was also placed on the US home page of Google-owned YouTube and Alphabet.
“For those feeling grief, anger, sadness & fear, you are not alone,” Pichai said, sharing a screenshot of the Google search home page which said “we stand in support of racial equality, and all those who search for it,” read the tech-giant’s tweet.
