"...it's not just a matter of it not being polite to say 'n*****' in public..." - - President Barack Obama

NEW YORK CITY (June 22, 2015) – (Courtesy Huffington Post / HuffPost Live) In a recent interview, President Obama used the N-word when making a point about racism following the Charleston shootings. Does the attention and criticism he’s getting over the use of this word prove his point about race in America?
