    A community newspaper in New York faced intense criticism Sunday, for calling President Obama the N-word in a headline.

    The WestView News, a small paper that touts itself as “The Voice of the West Village,” ran an op-ed column in its July edition titled “The Nig–r in the White House.”

    The article, penned by James Lincoln Collier, was actually pro-Obama and criticized what it called “racism” by far-right voters.

    Possibly fearing a backlash, the paper did not put the article on its website. But a copy of it was posted online by the New York Post, along with a screen grab of another story by WestView News Columnist Alvin Hall, who criticized the article.

    In a rebuttal titled ”This Headline Offends Me,” Hall wrote, “I don't see how its use benefits anyone, but I do feel all too clearly how it deeply offends me.”

    Reaction on Twitter was just as negative, with user Donna Bee asking, “How do you refer to Jews, Mexicans, Muslims and Asians? Just curious.”

    The headline is all blurred out. Is it supposed to say "Reggie" ?

    Including that picture of the author was a tactical mistake, it makes the article look like something from "The Onion".

    Obama is only half enwurd. He has to have the presidential bloodline in there otherwise he wouldn't have made it in.
