In reaction, many claimed the search result is largely racist and based on colorism.
See some reactions below;
@OluwafemiMaduka: I’d ordinarily not have read much into this, but pple have so many ways of manifesting racism and colorism. Even big institutions, that should be more openminded, are accomplices in these ills.
Shame on them.”
