Trump Admin. Official Questioned If Using N***er Was Actually Racist: Report

A new report from the Washington Post...about a senior official in the ??Trump Administration questioning if the N-word is racist.

??Eric Blankenstein is a policy director at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

??He reportedly made the claim on a political blog more than a decade ago.

??The Post reports that he co-authored the 2004 blog post in response to the University of Virginia’s ??decision to impose academic penalties on students for racial intolerance.

??Allegedly writing quote, “Fine...let’s say they called him n***er.

Would that make them racists, or just a**holes?” ??Now, the post said it’s unable to verify that the blog was partially authored by Blankenstein.

??For his part, Blankenstein said in a statement to the paper, “The insight to be gained about how I perform my job today - by reading snippets of 14 year old blog posts that have nothing to do with consumer protection law - is exactly zero.”??Blankenstein was appointed by President Trump and according to the Post, ??he is one of the highest paid employees in the government.??
