Today’s disgusting piece of racist garbage comes not from trick-or-treating idiots or Fox News or the ghost of Jefferson Davis, but from celeb gossip site TMZ, which is asking, in 2013, what to “refer to Black people as.”

The two options given are “African American” and “Ni**a.” And, because that’s not offensive enough, TMZ even turned it into a fun little poll, asking readers to weigh in.
