    The fact that there are more images of white peoples' hands than anyone else's is likely a product of institutional racism: white people have more opportunities, more education, more money, and therefore better access to technology, so they're more represented online. And no, that's not a Google problem, it's a social problem that is reflected in Google search results.

    Which is why I don't think artificially increasing the number of non-white hands on Google search results is going to accomplish anything. It's like "curing" measles by painting over the spots. This just seems superficial and pointless.
