Posted by uproxx on

Barack Obama used the “N-Word” while making a point during a podcast yesterday and the media went into a frenzy. To me it wasn’t a big deal but to some it was reprehensible. Someone appearing on Fox News called him the “Rapper-in-Chief.” The media was proving his point without even noticing. What Obama stated was, “Racism, we are not cured of it.
