the n-word


From ABC News

"President Obama used the n-word in a discussion of racism in America today, saying that “we’re not cured” of the “legacy of slavery” and Jim Crow despite having made strides in recent decades.

"It’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say n***** in public,” the president said during an interview with comedian Marc Maron for his “WTF” podcast. “That's not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It's not just a matter of overt discrimination. Societies don't, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior."



Excuuuse me? "Societies don't, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior"? Overnight? Hey, Obama, what about the last 50 years of us baby boomers trying very hard to erase racism and/or be very race sensitive? You just erased those 50 years. You just erased my 50 years of treating people based on their character and their actions not on their race, religion or gender. I am deeply insulted!
