President Obama Nigger in the White House Controversial Headline

A liberal newspaper in New York City was trying to be edgy when it published a rambling nonsense piece about how everyone who disagrees with any of the policies of Obama is a hardcore racist and titled it “The Nigger in the White House.”

Unsurprisingly, even though the headline was designed to mock those who are viewed by the liberals as evil racists, the paper was accused of engaging in evil racism, because this is a trigger word.

A New York newspaper published an op-ed today in which President Obama is called the n-word right in the headline. But here’s the twist: it’s actually a pro-Obama op-ed, and James Collier, the author, makes the case in his piece that Republican hatred of the president is due to his race.

And in case you’re wondering why WestView News ran with the column, the publisher added a little note explaining that they were initially opposed to letting him go with that headline, they eventually agreed, because “Jim reminded me that the New York Times avoids using the word which convinced me that WestView should.” In the op-ed, Collier argues that “far right voters hate Obama because he is black,” and he argues that to many Americans, the president is, “if not exactly an enemy, at least an outsider.”

What were your thoughts when you first saw this headline? Could the same message been deliver and handled differently? Were you offended?
