The Washington Post has a report on this ugly story: If You Search Google Maps for the N-Word, It Gives You the White House.
Someone on Google Maps just labeled President Obama a very bad word.

We tested the claim on Tuesday night and confirmed that, yes, this is a thing. It even zooms the camera in, automatically. (For sensitivity’s sake, we partially obscured the search term and the autocomplete responses in the GIF below.)
I confirmed that another racist search term reported by users on Twitter also takes you to the White House:
And here’s another lovely search result from Google Maps:
Remember, though; according to conservatives there’s no more racism in the United States.
