Obama used N-Word, can't black candidate Sen. Guillory do so in TV ad in Louisiana?
Written by 

Guillory2How do you feel about a politician using the N-word in a television campaign ad?

What if the politician IS black?  Does that fact change anything?


And, what's the beef?  Didn’t President Obama just use the N-word in describing race in America?

"Racism, we are not cured of it. And it's not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public," Obama said in an interview for the podcast "WTF with Marc Maron."

"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."

So, is there an issue if Republican State Senator Elbert Guillory takes a swing at the “N”?

The Advocate reports:

“That line has stirred some controversy,” Guillory, a black Republican, said Monday. He said he’s not backing away from its use. “This is education.”

The  video, which so far has appeared only in the New Orleans market, features a “dreamed” conversation between Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. after Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act.

In the ad, Johnson says “he gave ‘them’ a little something to keep the n*****s voting for Democrats for the next 200 years.”

So, what do you think?
