N.H. Police Commissioner Resigns After Calling Obama Racial Slur

“I believe I did use the “n-word” in reference to the current occupant of the Whitehouse,” Copeland said in an email to his fellow police commissioners. “For this, I do not apologize – he meets and exceeds my criteria for such.”

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who owns a vacation home in Wolfeboro, also called for Copeland’s resignation, reports the Post.

“The vile epithet used and confirmed by the commissioner has no place in our community,” Romney said in a statement to the Boston Herald last week. “He should apologize and resign.”

About 20 Black people live in Wolfeboro in central New Hampshire, a state that’s 94 percent White and 1 percent Black, reports the Associated Press. None of the police department’s 12 full-time officers is Black or a member of another U.S. minority.
