Barack Obama used the N-word during a podcast interview that sent the Internet into a frenzy.

He added, “It is incontrovertible that race relations have improved significantly during my lifetime and yours.”
Notwithstanding, he said, “the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination” remains an issue for America.
