Obama called N-word in headline

NEW YORK — An op-ed in a New York newspaper has a lot of people talking because of the headline.

The writer, James Lincoln Collier, used the N-word to describe President Barack Obama in the headline of a story in the WestView News.

In an interview with CNN, he defended his article and his political position.

Collier said he is a supporter of Obama and he used the word to make a point. He said he wanted to bring attention to the fact that many Americans are angry because there is a black president.

“That was the whole point of this, is that a great many people in the United States continue to think of President Obama as ‘the n*****,'” Collier told CNN. “I wanted to make that point that there is a substantial amount of racism still existing in the United States, and that is how I expressed it in order to get that point across as strongly as I could.”

Alvin Hall, a WestView News columnist, ran an article titled “The Headline Offends Me” on the same page as Collier’s article.

    It’s impossible to think that the reason so many people are angry at Obama are because of his policies, or because of the deficit, or all of the scandals, or simply because he’s destroying this country from within. Those things COULDN’T be it!!! Most are mad because he’s black and he’s President! These same people are the ones who would have voted for Herman Cain, and will vote for Ben Carson if he were to run. My, my, my…….go figure….

    Liberal media at its finest. Can this country survive until 2016?

    It just amazes me that people are so ignorant!! The last time I checked Obama is bi racial, not African American anyway??

      Seems to me folks who are MAD aint MAD at the white part of Obama. We know this and the author bought this out in big bold print. The author has always been an Obama Supporter, and like he said it was an attention getter. poor choice of words but yes it got the attention . READ THE ARTICLE before jumping on the MAD bandwagon. He was telling how racists feel and it needed to be said. Probably would not even make the news if a black person wrote it.

    I wish the people of this world would please get a life and stop looking at the color of the person skin or what race they are. We are all God people and there is only one Heaven and there is a hell.

    He will go down in History as a Great President!! He has tried to do what is right for the middle-class and not pad the pockets of the rich. I am proud to say I voted for him and his color makes no difference to me and obviously to the majority of people because he was elected and then re-elected!!!

  • THE CHOSEN ONE.......

    YOU ANN KIRKMAN ARE A BIGGER IDIOT THAN HE IS,YOU ARE STUPID IF YOU TRULY BELIEVE THAT HE WILL BE KNOWN AS A GREAT PRESIDENT….IF YOU ARE ON WELFARE I CAN SEE YOU LIKING HIM,OR A MEXICAN…..OTHER THAN THOSE TWO REASON,YOUR THE STUPID ONE

      Some of us just appreciate having a president with a brain, thank you very much. Also, you are a racist and a classist.

      Now that you’ve read the skewed article written about the poll, why don’t you go look up the poll? You will see that the people who were polled did NOT select President Obama as the worst president since WWII…. they simply didn’t select him as the BEST president since WWII. Incidentally. President G.W. Bush was supposedly chosen as the worst president when he was in office. I bet he’s your fave, huh? ;) By the way, there’s no need to shout. Calm down, for pity’s sake.
