President Obama is catching some heat for using "Offensive language" while discussing racism in America on the "WTF Podcast". But I love the realness in this discussion. Watch the 1st Black President say the full "N-Word" in the original video here.

"Racism, we are not cured of it. And it's not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public," Obama said in an interview for the podcast "WTF with Marc Maron".

"That's not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It's not just a matter of overt discrimination. Societies don't, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior."

A lot of people are freaking out that he actually said the full word, but they are missing the relevance of the context in which he said it.

Are you offended that Obama said the "N-Word"?
