For all its posturing as a defender of free speech in China, Google English thus far has been caught censoring from its search prompts the phrases climategate, Islam is, Epic Beard Man and Pat Buchanan. The pattern is unmistakable.

In the back of my mind I knew that this state of affairs couldn't last, that my website being the second one under the first prompt of a "wh" question word was too good to be true. And today, I awoke to find that "why are black people so" had been censored from Google.
