Google Takes a Subtle Dig at Russia’s Anti-Gay Policies With Olympic Doodle

I've never been so proud of Google, and I'm usually pretty proud of Google.

Google Olympic Doodle

Google seems to have taken a stand on the right side of history when it comes to their Google Doodle celebrating the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Along with the stylized images of some of the games, they’ve also included a quote from the Olympic Charter that talks about discrimination. Well played, Google.

Russia has an insulting stance on homosexuality in their country and at the games. The United States has protested by selecting openly gay delegates to send to the games, and it seems Google is protesting as well. If you can’t read the image above the quote from the Olympic Charter reads:

The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practicing sport, without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play.

Good on ya’, Google.
