Today is Labor Day in the U.S. and it is also Freddie Mercury's birthday. Freddie Mercury is well known as the lead signer of Queen.

He was born today in 1946 and died from bronchopneumonia brought on by AIDS on November, 24 1991. He is one of the most well known singers of the era and has been very influential in HIV awareness.

That being said, Google has a special logo for him on almost all properties except Google.com, because Google.com is remembering Labor Day. Google said they will show the logo on September 6th, tomorrow on Google US instead.

Here is a static picture of the logo and a video below:

Google always does that with American holidays, not to mention Christian ones.

So Google spent the time to create a video logo for Freddie Mercury, which is cool.  But all they did for Labor Day is a small clipart flag on the bottom of the screen.  Hmm....

It's clear where Google creators/owners owe their allegiance to... NOTHING. Worthless, Godless, Money-loving, piles of sh*t.

Allegiance? I thought they were just trying to be 'non-biased'.

Google repeats its trends..left coast, Liberal BS'ers celebrate a National holiday with a tiny flag but go all out for obscure artists, painters, et al???!!!!!  But when it comes to America, these fools act like they are ashamed of this country....

Actually, I wasn't referring to Freddie, but to painters, sculpters, etc who died 150 years ago that no one ever heard of.  Try getting out more often yourself; there's more to artists than singers...
