What Do Google, The N-Word, And The White House Have In Common?

No, it’s not a joke. But apparently it’s the biggest faux pas committed by the left leaning, monster search engine in a long time.

Some Google users have found typing in certain racial slurs and White House references immediately pulls up the White House address on Google Maps.

Howard University alumni Bomani Buckhalter told the Huffington Post that friends told him that searching “N***** house” in Google Maps pulled up 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

“It is location-based, so for some of the students that are not currently in D.C., the search result was different. However, even if you’re not in D.C., ‘[N] HouseWashington D.C.’ shows the same result,'” he added.

USA TODAY reported:

USA TODAY Network tried the search “N***** house, Washington D.C.” on Wednesday morning and the slur directed us to the White House. The search “N***** king” also pulls up the White House address.

Google told the Washington Post they are aware of the situation and working to fix it. Initial efforts by USA TODAY Network to reach Google have proved unsuccessful.

This isn’t the first time users have used Google Maps in an offensive manner. On May 12, Google shut down its Map Maker function after a user drew an Android icon urinating on an Apple logo.

The Map Marker function allowed users to draw roads, rivers and green spaces intoGoogle Maps.

“We have been experiencing escalated attacks to spam Google Maps over the past few months. The most recent incident was particularly troubling and unfortunate. A strong user in our community chose to go and create a large scale prank on the Map,” Pavithra Kanakarajan, a Google Map Maker team member said in a post after the Google Maps hack.

Google is working on a fix to the problem.
