    Kansas Republican apologizes to "colored people" for using racial slur

    ...Also, he...wait for it...has a "black friend."

    Oh man...when it rains it pours, eh GOP?

    In a recording made by County Clerk Don Merriman of the study session, Gile, who is white, can be heard to say the county needed to hire an architect to design the improvements rather than “n[*]gger-rigging it.”
    His comment brought laughter from others in the room. Salinan Ray Hruska, who attends most commission meetings and study sessions, asked Gile what he said.

    “Afro-Americanized,” Gile replied. . . .

    Gile said he grew up around the term, but it is something he shouldn’t have used.

    “I am not a prejudiced person,” Gile said Friday. “I have built Habitat homes for colored people.”

    Gile said he also has a close friend whom he regards as a sister who is black.
