  • Kyle Greene, who is running as an independent in the
    race for District 18A state representative in Minnesota,
    released his first campaign ad on Facebook earlier this
    month. 
  • In the ad, Greene, of Grove City, Minnesota, tells
    voters he wants “to be your n—-.”
  • Greene identifies as African American, white and
    Cherokee Indian. 
  • He said he included the racial slur in his video so
    voters focus on “the real issues at hand.”

An organic farmer who is running for state representative in
Minnesota identifies himself as the N-word in his first campaign
video.

Kyle Greene, who is running as an independent in the race for
District 18A state representative in Minnesota,
released the video on Facebook
earlier this month.

“I want to be your state representative, I want to be your public
servant and I want to be your n—-,” Green, of Grove City, says
in the ad.

Greene identifies as African American, white, and Cherokee
Indian, according to the
Minnesota Star Tribune
.

He said he included the racial slur in his video so voters focus
on “the real issues at hand.”

“We need to unify as a society, and we need to stop dealing with
trivial matters,” he said. “The word … is part of the American
history, regardless of the race. … It’s part of my history.”

Greene said he does not plan on buying digital ads on other
websites, so the video will simply remain on his Facebook page.

The organic farmer told The Star Tribune he decided to run for
office because he believes the incumbent, Republican Rep. Dean
Urdahl, has been ignoring what he sees as judicial corruption.

He said he is currently drafting bills that would hold judicial
officials accountable.
