Justin Moyer: Google should stop Google Doodles

Justin Moyer makes the argument that Google should stop Google Doodles:

Since Google began Doodling in 1998, it?s aligned its brand with some of the greatest human beings who ever walked the Earth, borrowing the pixie dust of Gandhi, MLK and others. In a role once reserved for the U.S. Postal Service and its stamps, Google now decides who deserves tribute ? Hurston yes, Malcolm X no.

It?s time for the company to stop folding major political and cultural figures into its logo.

Because Google didn’t honor the person Moyer would like, Google should get out of the business of paying tribute to notable individuals? Um… Google has a first amendment right to honor anyone they want with their original art on their platform.

Of all the things Google does and this is what Justin Moyer is concerned about?

“The logos reduce legacies to cartoons, turning icons into iconography.”

… Reduce legacies to CARTOONS?

Ouch.
