A Hackensack Councilman has been accused of using the N Word to introduce himself to a detective causing a firestorm at a recent council meeting.

Councilman David Sims was quoted as saying to detective Travara Morton, “I don’t think we’ve met, but I wanted to introduce myself to you. I am the Head “n….!”, adding “it don’t get no higher than me!”

When I first heard the story I laughed thinking, “he meant no harm;” but that’s a hell of a way to make a first impression.

Besides that, if the word is thought to be one of the most divisive words in the English language, it shouldn’t be used in any context – let alone as an introduction meant to “break the ice!”
