New York Newspaper Calls President Obama N-Word In Headline
A West Village newspaper is under fire for calling President Obama the ‘N-word’ in a headline.
The WestView News ran an op-ed column entitled “The N***** in the White House” in its latest July edition.
Despite James Lincoln Collier’s article being pro-Obama and slamming what it says is the “racism” of far-right voters, it’s unsurprisingly sparked outrage among readers.
“How do you refer to Jews, Mexicans, Muslims and Asians? Just curious,” asked Tweeter @DonnaBee511.
“I can see his point but the fact that is a headline in this paper that represents the West Village is disgusting,” poet Florence Kindred told Pix11.
“Over the top?” added fellow Twitter user Steve Bien-Aime.
The newspaper, distributed to 20,000 readers each month, did not publish the article on its website.
Below the offending story, however, it published a piece by black columnist Alvin Hall – who criticized what had been written under the title “This Headline Offends Me.”
“I don’t see how its use benefits anyone, but I do feel all too clearly how it deeply offends me,” Hall wrote.
Observers have speculated that the inclusion of Hall’s piece reveals the “depth of thought” that went into deciding Collier’s headline in the first place.
“Depth of thought”, really?? Looks to us like there was absolutely NO thought in calling the POTUS an n*****.
