Earlier this month, a black man running for a state house seat in Minnesota used a racial slur to drive citizens away from tribal matters, and focus on the “real issue at hand” in his campaign for the position.

“I’m not asking you to vote me as your leader, I’m asking you to vote for me as your public servant,” Kyle Greene said in his campaign video, shared via his website and facebook page.

In the video that went viral Kyle says, “The primary duty of a state representative is to protect all the rights of his constituents. I want to be your state representative, I want to be your public servant and I want to be your N****.”

By Thursday last week the video had gotten over 10,000 views via Facebook and this prompt an explanation from the candidate on why he used the word so freely.

He says, “We need to unify as a society, and we need to stop dealing with tribal matters,” and this is what Kyle told Star Tribune, adding that the N-word “is part of the American history, regardless of the race.”

As he continues he says, “It’s part of my history being African-American, white and Cherokee Indian.”
