Kraft Sponsors White Supremacist Website By Mistake

Kraft Foods was a bit surprised when they found themselves advertising on whiterevolution.com late last year. Kraft had used Google's AdWords contextual advertising program which matches page content to keywords the advertisers select. Google offers a free search engine to website publishers which, when results are returned, AdWords advertising appears above or next to the search results.

Whiterevolution.com used this Google feature and when Milford, Connecticut freelance reporter Tom Giordano entered the search term "Halloween" on whiterevolution.com, Kraft's text ads appeared near the results. Giordano was researching a story on the group who had distributed fliers locally.

Google, of course, forbids sites that contain pornographic, hate-related or violent content from using its search tool but the search code is freely available to all who wish to use it even if they do not conform to Google's requirements. Upon discovery, Google has disallowed whiterevolution from using its tools.

Just came upon this information about Google and the Whiterevolution.com website. By all the information, Whiterevolution.com should not be considered as a Hate website.
Those people don't hate anybody. They just want to live in a White, civilized, European centered society as has always been for 450 years.
If that's the truth, then we should call God, our Creator, a racist too. After all, until proven otherwise, "he" or at least "natural laws " placed different races in different continents and not all of them in one place.
Got it?
