Kyle Greene, who’s running as an independent, posted a 30-second video on his website and Facebook, urging voters to elect him to office.
“I want to be your state representative, I want to be your public servant and I want to be your (N-word),” Greene says at the end of the ad.
Greene, who identifies as African-American, white and Cherokee Indian,” said he included the slur so voters focus on more important issues.
“We need to unify as a society, and we need to stop dealing with trivial matters,” he told the Minnesota Star-Tribune. “The word…is part of the American history, regardless of the race. … It’s part of my history.”
