At the White House Correspondents' Dinner last weekend black comedian Larry Wilmore's in his monologue used the "N" word in referring to President Barack Obama. The president for his part also used the word in an interview last year speaking frankly about the persistence of racism in the United States saying "It's not just a matter of it not being polite to say the "N" word in public. That's not the measure of whether racism still exists or not".
Do you agree with Warren Buffet that the U.S. economy is headed in the right direction and not any one single president will change that?
