Obama Sings 'Amazing Grace' During Eulogy for Rev. Pinckney (Video)

President Barack Obama gives the eulogy during Rev. Clementa Pinckney‘s funeral service on Friday afternoon (June 26) in Charleston, S.C.

The President of the United States was at the service to honor the South Carolina state senator and reverend, who was killed in the Charleston church shooting last week.

“We are here today to remember a man of God who lived by faith,” Obama said. “A man who believed in things not seen. A man who believed there were better days ahead, off in the distance. A man of service who persevered knowing full well he would not receive all those things he was promised, because he believed his efforts would provide a better life for those who followed.”

Obama finished the eulogy by breaking into a rendition of “Amazing Grace.” Watch below.

President Obama Says N-Word During Interview on Racism

President Barack Obama has surprised a lot of people after he openly said the N-word during an interview about racism on Marc Maron‘s “WTF” podcast.

“The legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination in almost every institution of our lives, you know, that casts a long shadow, and that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on. We’re not cured of it,” the President of the United States says in the interview.

“And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say ‘n——-’ in public,” Obama continues. “That’s not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It’s not just a matter of overt discrimination. … Societies don’t overnight completely erase everything that happened 2-300 years prior.”
