Rush Limbaugh boasted on Tuesday that, after hearing Monday’s CNN interview with Trayvon Martin’s friend Rachel Jeantel, he was now allowed to use the word “n***a.”
He then used the word, reports The Huffington Post.
Jeantel, who was on the phone with Martin just before he was killed by George Zimmerman, told Piers Morgan that she thought “n—a” was a non-racist term that could be applied to any man, whereas “n—-r” was offensive. This made Limbaugh giddy.
“So, n—a with an a on the end,” he said, before adding, “I think I can now. Isn’t that the point? Because it’s not racist! I could be talking about a male.”
