Last week we reported that Google Instant, that neat thingy that makes suggestions to you while you type in the Google search box, had a list of words that were banned, or that didn’t give you suggested terms, due to fear of giving users links to pornography. The only ethnic group on this banned list was Latina. You were mad and took to facebook to tell us.

Our Facebook page lit up with comments yesterday after we posted the news that Google Instant had banned the word “Latina” so as not to accidentally show porn sites to users. Our FB friend Tanya De Leon said it best “WTH! What is the logic behind that? Since when is "Latina" a controversial term? Hopefully if enough people say something about that, it will change.”
