This was a conscious decision on their part. "There are tons of Christians. We aren't Christian, so let's give a big middle finger to them all by holding up a labor activist instead on their sacred holiday."



This. They didn't even have to put anything up on their website today. They could have just used their traditional logo but instead opted for an image of Cesar Chavez. I've got nothing against the man personally, but this was obviously a conscious decision to ruffle a few feathers.

Agreed


Hispanicos need some recognition from time to time too

I must say, even as an agnostic, that was a dumb business decision. Put a Easter egg or something right there - didn't have to be religious.

They haven't done an Easter doodle in years.

Dogpile has one.

This has already been stated. But today is the holiest day of the year for an estimated 2 billion of the planet's total human population. If you're of a different religion, or are not religious, and you run the world's most visited website, you use your traditional logo. You don't go off celebrating the life of someone who has little to do with Christianity. Granted it's their website and they can do what they want with it, but it just doesn't make good business sense. And they knew this. They just decided to put Cesar Chavez on their site because they knew it would generate hits, tick people off, and get them talking.

I remember the same bull shite "outrage" from you guys 365 days ago.

Google doesn't use religious themes.

Stop letting it rustle your jimmies. .

Once again, I realize this. But why use a theme at all on the holiest day of the year for 2 billion Christians? Why not just use their traditional logo?

That's where the problem comes in.

Doesn't Google have to reach everyone? I am disappointed from my own perspective I'm not seeing an Easter Bunny. And with all the data they collect on us I would then they could figure out more specifically what we all like and have it customized for each user.

Only because you're being overdramatic by calling it a problem. Just stop.. seriously- you're "outraged" over a logo.

Sure they do. Remember the whole Arizona boycott thing? Google can do whatever they want, including putting a pic of David Duke on their homepage on MLK day. This is just poking a finger at Christians, that's all it is. Used to it, no big deal.

Was it really though? Google got a huge chunk of people on the internet to discuss their business, as opposed to just going on living their lives. Shit, I went to the google homepage just to see if it was still up. The number of people who will stop using google because of this is extremely minimal. The traffic they are generating is not.
