Google, I'm annoyed with you

A quick off-topic post (although, really is anything off-topic here?) about why I think Google is an Orientalist pig.

Ok, so that may be overstating it a bit - but when I edit my blogger posts, I see the following message in the sidebar:
Is Hindi my native script? Really, now..! Yes, so I've signed up for Google News India (what? I like the Bollywood newsbites), and have dabbled in the Hindi translation groups. But native? Did we really need to go there, Blogger?

What have we discussed would warrant such orientalist crapola? Bad Google.
