Cuomo: I Was Quoting The New York Times Using The N-Word

Governor Cuomo is commenting publicly on the controversy he stirred up by using the 'n-word.' The governor said yesterday he was just quoting the New York Times when he used the racial slur during a radio interview last week.

The Times article was an op-ed discussing racism against Italian Americans. The comment upset some prominent African American leaders, but others, including Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie said the governor only used the word in the context of the newspaper column.
