Obama uses N-word and says America isn’t ‘cured’ of racism

The President said during an interview with comedian Marc Maron for his WTF show: ‘Racism, we are not cured of it. And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say n****r in public.’

Barack Obama claimed the United States was still infected with racism – and dropped the N-word to make his point – in his first ever podcast interview released this morning.

The President said: ‘Racism, we are not cured of it. And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say n****r in public. That’s not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It’s not just a matter of overt discrimination.

‘Societies don’t overnight completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior.’

The President said that attitudes about race had improved significantly since he was born to a white mother and black father 53 years ago.

But the nation’s history of slavery ‘casts a long shadow, and that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on’.
