Pro-Obama Man Pens Story: There’s A Nigger In the WH to prove racial point!

A West Village, New York City newspaper used the n-word in a headline about President Barack Obama.

WestView News, an 11-year-old newspaper that calls itself “the voice of the West Village,” published an article headlined “The Nigger” in the West Village,” written by James Lincoln Collier. The article does not appear to be online.

The New York Post uploaded the print version of the Page 15 opinion article from the July issue, which the Post noted was “pro-Obama.”

Collier “wanted to use the word” to “shock us into accepting that there are people who believe and use this outrageous word,”

WestView News’s publisher George Capsis defended the use of the racial slur for an odd reason. Capsis said he was “convinced” the paper should run the slur because the New York Times doesn’t.

“In this article, however, Jim reminded me that The New York Times avoids using the word which convinced me that WestView should,” the Post quoted Capsis as saying.

Capsis also said that the writer advocated for the inclusion of the n-word to “shock us into accepting that there are people who believe and use this outrageous word,”

Jezebel noted that “Right beneath Collier’s piece is a response by Alvin Hall succinctly titled ‘The Headline Offends Me.'” Hall, who is black, said he was offended.

“The decision to use the headline feels misguided to me,” Hall wrote, according to Jezebel. “I don’t see how its use benefits anyone, but I do feel all too clearly how it deeply offends me.”

According to the WestView News’ website, “Each month, 20,000 copies are distributed across the West Village, Greenwich Village and parts of Chelsea neighborhoods.”
