Google apologized for the word “nigger” showing up during searches for the White House using Google maps.

Searches for “nigger house”, in a global view of the world, and for “nigger king”, when focused on in the Washington DC greater area, return with the home of the US president Barack Obama as either the primary search result or one of three.

“Some inappropriate results are surfacing in Google Maps that should not be, and we apologise for any offence this may have caused. Our teams are working to fix this issue quickly,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement. It has not explained why the results are occurring.

    When I see stories like this, and the racist Twitter feeds to the president..
    I fully understand what Michelle Obama ment when she said, ‘for the first time in my life I was proud of America’..
    This country has a long way to go before I can honestly say, “I’m proud to be an American”.

    It is sad this filth aren’t called out by the politicians they support (republicans),but that would require making them mad so they just shut up.

    Thank you Chris, I don’t use Google maps, couldn’t know how it works. I guess It’s no use entering my name, I live abroad, Google here does not have entries for most people by name, but I’ll try it. 🙂
