Racist Ad Draws Unwanted Attention To Texas Paper

The message reads "EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY the term 'N***** Rigged' is absolutely no longer acceptable, you will now refer to it as a 'Presidential Solution.'"

Late Thursday afternoon Diana Hilton, the owner of the company released the following statement:

"We have never had any type of incident of this nature during our time of publication. We sincerely apologize to our readers and our advertisers. It is never our intentions to degrade or offend any persons. Our content is provided by various outside sources and does not necessarily reflect the view of the publication or its owners. It was an unfortunate error that this was not caught by our editing department prior to publication. Once again, we apologize."

Long time residents like Sickles say the apology should have been made days ago, along with a retraction
