Default Minnesota House Candidate Calls Himself N-Word in Ad



Minnesota House Candidate Calls Himself N-Word in Ad

Quote:
A man running for a rural Minnesota House seat has posted a campaign video that uses a racial slur.

Kyle Greene, who identifies himself as of mixed race, is running as an independent for a central Minnesota district. He posted the video to his campaign Facebook page and website last week.

Greene concludes the 30-second spot by saying: "I want to be your state representative, I want to be your public servant and I want to be your (N-word)." He tells the Star Tribune that he used the word because it's part of American history and he wants voters to focus on real issues.

Greene identifies himself as African-American, white and Cherokee Indian.
No YouTube link (yet), but you can see the ad here or Greene's Facebook page...

That was an antiquated thinking promoted by the slave owners. Yet it is continued to this day, by those who find their righteous anger in tearing down anything that represents Southern/Confederate history. So why do they perpetuate this?

I'm open to explanations....

I actually think that is kind of funny, and definitely a unique way to present himself. I hope it is airing on the local TV and radio stations.
