Obama's Face to the "A Nigger In The White House" Article

NY Newspaper Calls Obama “The Ni**er in the White House”

It shouldn’t come as a surprise: click-bait journalism culture has successfully permeated newspapers as publications attempt to stay afloat in the digital age. The latest example of this comes from New York City-based newspaper The Westview News (aka the voice of the West Village), which ran an opinion editorial piece this past Sunday titled “The Nigger In The White House.”

The article, written by James Lincoln Collier, made it to print but not the website, for fear of negative comments/backlash in response to the clearly offensive headline. The craziest thing about the article is that it’s Pro-Obama. However, the main issue with click-bait journalism is that most people will not make it past the headline that made them take notice the first place.

Another op-ed piece ran directly below Collier’s article, written by a black columnist named Alvin Hall. The piece is titled “The Headline Offends Me.”
Within the piece Hall said, “The decision to use the headline feels misguided to me. I don’t see how its use benefits anyone, but I do feel all too clearly how it deeply offends me.”

Check out both op-ed pieces from Collier and Hall below.
