New Hampshire Town’s Residents Want Police Chief Fired For Calling Obama The ‘N’ Word
Wolfeboro, NH police commissioner Robert Copeland (pictured in the pink shirt) admits he used the word while dining in a restaurant and says, “‘I do not apologize — he meets and exceeds my criteria for such.’
Resident Jane O’Toole said she overheard Wolfeboro Police Commissioner Robert Copeland use a racial slur in describing Obama…
She heard him say he hates turning on the television because every time he does, there’s that ‘f***ing n*****.’
‘He sort of swung around and puffed up his chest and said, “Yeah,”‘ she told the Concord Monitor. ‘And I said, “Not good, not good at all.”‘
In an email response to her, Copeland included an excerpt from an email he sent to his fellow commissioners acknowledging his remark.
He said in the excerpt, ‘I believe I did use the ‘N’ word in reference to the current occupant of the Whitehouse. For this, I do not apologize — he meets and exceeds my criteria for such.’ He also wrote: ‘While I believe the problems associated with minorities in this country are momentous, I am not phobic.’

He should be left alone in a room filled with Black people and see him use the words then. I don’t think he has the guts. If he did, I would hope he had his Obamacare paid up!

Criticism of the President has nothing to do with race, nothing at all.
At least that lie is being put to rest.
Fortunately people like Mr. Copeland are dying off, along with their ugly ignorance. As someone who also likely “meets and exceeds the criteria for such”, I have no problem saying without hesitation or equivocation that the country and the world will be a much better place the day of Copeland’s funeral.

Mr. Copeland meets and exceeds my criteria for a feminine hygiene product.

According to the New Hampshire Economic information labor bureau, Wolfeboro (as of 2012) has a population of *giggle* 6244. They have a police COMMISSIONER? Really? Now I have been there many times, and someone very close to me lives there but…
It seems to me throwing racial slurs at a television is pointless.
If “Commissioner” Copeland really wanted to make a point he should find a black people and let them know how he feels. I suggest this guy. Oh sure he’s going to get his dental plan activated, but at the end of the day he’ll just be a racist, instead of a racist AND a coward.
