Google’s Gemini AI Excludes White People

They’ve managed to concoct an AI model with, shall we say, a very colorful disposition.

By Noel S. Williams

Alphabet (Google) recently released Gemini, its “largest and most capable AI model.” Unfortunately, it is capable of racism — against whites.

This DEI travesty indicates that Fiona Cicconi, the Chief People Officer at Google, is sleeping on the job. Perhaps she is not effectively facilitating cross-functional teams to ensure that the Gemini AI image generator is inclusive of white people.

She needs to wake up and impose some remedial DEI training upon the team of engineers who develop the Gemini artificial intelligence image generation tools. In Gemini (which is an update to Bard), they’ve managed to concoct an AI model with, shall we say, a very colorful disposition.

CEO Sunar Pichai says Gemini will make AI “helpful for everyone, everywhere in the world.” Well, maybe not white people in America who reject the mindless momentum behind revisionist history, including the 1619 Project. Indeed, Gemini is so colorful that it decided to portray our Founding Fathers as people of color.

As we know, the term “racism” is nonchalantly bandied about, often becoming the first refuge of leftist scoundrels. But Gemini may have earned the racial characterization since it simply refuses to render white people at all. We know if it did that for [pick a minority], various “ism” charges would reverberate.

I suppose that’s typical for DEI — include everyone except white people. After all, Fiona’s direct reports are women of color. Indeed, the executive team is abundantly represented with people of color. There’s Ben Gomes, Prabhakar Raghavan, Sundar Pichai (CEO), Thomas Kurian, Hiroshi Lockheimer, and a sprinkling of others whose names betray a colorful disposition.

Google has been playing catchup, especially to Microsoft, in AI development. Pausing its Gemini AI image generator due to prejudice against our white Founding Fathers — and white people in general — represents a serious setback. Its awful publicity while competitor Microsoft’s AI renditions, including Copilot, flies amongst the computing Clouds (data centers).

Google was quick to lower the boom on engineer James Damore when he wrote a scathing memo criticizing the company’s diversity imperatives. Gemini has been temporarily banned, but I won’t hold my breath to see if Fiona, and her colorful team, discipline the algorithm’s racist creators. The deleterious reputational and financial impact of Gemini’s racism are far greater than Damore’s ramblings.
