What President Trump Said About Being Black In 1989
MSNBC
Published on Aug 15, 2018
So far America has not heard a recording of Donald Trump saying the N-word, but we do have something Trump said in 1989 about being black. And does the President’s favorite morning show think the President was outsmarted? “The Black List” creator Franklin Leonard and Professor Jason Johnson join Lawrence.

Am I right in assuming that the N word is nigger and not negro? Both I suppose could be construed as offensive but the first is more offensive by a long shot.

Yes that's right. Back on CoS, the word "nigger" was banned, replaced by "***" - as was any word having those letters. Like you had to write "snicker" instead of "snigger" or it would also come out "***" - It happened to me once, and it took me a few seconds to understand why a word that to me was innocent was being censored. super grin

I wonder whether they'll reprint edited versions of books like "To Kill a Mockingbird", where that word is widely used, Atticus Finch being accused of being a "nigger lover". Question

Thanks for that and yes I wonder if they will start reprinting books in a politically correct way to appease some people....
