President Obama gets real on Podcast, drops the N-Word when talking about Race Relations

President Obama kept it real on Marc Maron on the comedian's "WTF" podcast. In lieu of the Charleston shooting, President Obama said this about race relations:
"It is incontrovertible that race relations have improved significantly during my lifetime and yours. What is also true is that the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination in almost every institution of our lives -- that casts a long shadow and that's still part of our DNA that's passed on. The United States is not "cured" of racism. It's not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public. That's not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It's not just a matter of overt racism."
The media is all over this, which is kinda funny to see their response.

Fox News' reaction is priceless though
