(By the way, don’t rush to the site to do your own search: Google, without notifying the Web site owner, yanked the search engine from the White Revolution site.) It was time to contact the companies and Google to find out what was going on.No, Kraft was not aware that its name and Web address appeared at the White Revolution Web site as a sponsored link, a company spokeswoman said.

“Clearly, if they have a policy that states that specific issues, such as hate or adult materials, violate their terms of use, then they have that right as a company.The process is so chaotic, that Google would be virtually unable to assure clients their names will not continue to appear at so-called undesirable Web sites in the future, says one expert.The issue came to light after a story appeared in several newspapers published by Hometown Publications shortly after Halloween.(Hometown publishes 12 publications each week, including the Valley Gazette.) The story centered on an Arkansas-based organization called White Revolution, some of whose affiliate members had distributed fliers in predominantly white neighborhoods in Connecticut cautioning residents not to take their children trick-or-treating in minority sections, ostensibly for safety reasons.In researching the story, the reporter visited the organization’s Web site at conducted various site searches, initially for “Thanksgiving,” to see if yet another flier was in the works. But something else in the search page results caught the reporter’s eye: To the right of the accessed page was a column titled “Sponsored Links.” At the bottom of the column appeared the words: “See your message here.” The “Sponsored Links” column included the names and Web addresses of Kraft Foods, Jennie-O, and six or seven lesser-known companies, all offering a product or service related to have its name and Web address appear as a sponsored link when a Google search is performed using keywords associated with Kraft products or services.

After looking into Kraft’s association with the White Revolution search page, Sitkiewicz issued a written statement: “At Kraft, we’re committed to diversity - both in terms of our employee population and in serving a diverse consumer base.

“ Cohen pointed to the Federal Communications Commission, which has upped the fine for those who broadcast or telecast materials that are considered offensive.

“To me, it’s a consumer-choice question,” Cohen said.

Depending upon which keyword was used to search the site, other notable companies popped up, including, Wal-Mart, Jennie-O and Bass Pro Shops, as well as Jewish organizations, the NAACP, African-American companies and religious groups.

In short, corporations and organizations that would not knowingly connect themselves to a white supremacist group were listed as sponsored links on this organization’s search page.

On the other side of the issue is that the Internet is all about freedom of speech.
