I truly hope President Obama is not directing this to just white people.
Marc Lamont Hill
Shout out to the people outraged that the president said "'n-word'" once but don't care about the countless times he's been called it since 08
Fox News pundit Elizabeth Hasselbeck thinks it is inappropriate for a president to that word and she’s concerned he might use it in a public address.
Hasselbeck should be able to sleep soundly knowing that Obama will not be giving shout outs to “all the niggas who ain’t here” at the next State of the Union address before he pours out a little bit of a 40-ounce beer.
From the way Fox talking heads are framing it, one might think that Obama spit a verse on a “Trap Queen” remix instead of offering a nuanced conversation on a podcast. Context matters. The president’s critics are desperately seeking to find anything to criticize him about and they have come up short on this one. Any reasonably intelligent adult who listened to the podcast or read the transcript could understand that Obama was not just using a “taboo” word for fun. He was making a point.
You make a lot of assumptions..........this whole post was nothing but one large assumption
