    The White House has yet to comment on the Google Maps issue.
    ‘N---- House?'

    As first reported by the Washington Post Tuesday, anyone surfing Google Maps who types in the racist slur ‘N---- house’ will automatically be directed to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, more commonly known as The White House.

    ‘Some inappropriate results are surfacing in Google Maps that should not be and we apologize for any offense this may have caused,’ a Google spokeswoman said. But, as of Wednesday morning the 'glitch' was still occurring.

    Google Map users were in for a racist surprise Wednesday if they typed a particular racist slur into the search field.
    It’s unknown if the incident has been caused by a rouge Google employee or something akin to a ‘Google Bomb,’ which occurs when users virtually flood the site with a particular keyword which tricks Google’s algorithms into making an error.

    The White House had yet to respond to the incident Wednesday morning.

    Typing in "n----- house" into Google Maps directs you to The White House. As of May 20, 2015 Google has not changed this bug.
    But, outrage among social media users spread quickly Wednesday .

    ‘So I just goggled the word ‘Ni--erhouse and the White House popped up. If that ain’t racist I don’t know what is,’ Twitter user Gizzle wrote.

    ‘How long is it gonna take you to fix this ‘n---- house situation @google’ asked I am TrillaB.

    Shouldn't the question be "Who are these people and why are they typing in 'Nigga House" on Goggle?" :crazy2:

    Maybe Google should have flagged any request with the word "Ni..er" in it. I thought these people where smart.

    It seems to be fixed now. When I typed it in I got a location in Nairobi, Kenya. That surprised me also.

    Oh please, this was done by the admin to say; "See America is racist".

    No one is buying it.
