So "white", "man" and "woman" are all in there, which are the three unique words that search term is searching for.

Searching just by naive key word matching is technology of about two decades ago. Now a days even the most basic search engine is going to have a grammatical understanding that can understand and match nouns/verbs/adjectives.

This is not a bug. It's intentional internal sabotage.

edit Eg - search for "red triangle and red triangle" and then search for "red triangle and blue triangle".

edit2 Or for instance search for "man running" vs "man running late." On keyword match the first is a subset of the second, yet in actuality the results are entirely different due to a grammatical understanding.

red triangle and red triangle

red triangle and blue triangle

Exactly as I expected. The search engine has no clue, and the results are identical to just searching "red triangle" and "red triangle blue" respectively.

But I can Google search successfully for way more obscure shit.

Sounds like a lie to me.

That's exactly the point. Super obscure stuff will have a billion tags to describe it. While something as "standard" as a white heterosexual couple is just called a "couple".

Notice how you only find heterosexual couples when searching for "couple". Then try searching for "straight couple". I just checked, there's a bunch of gay couples. Because you're suddenly looking for pictures of couples where sexuality is relevant, instead of just looking for a picture of a couple.
