College paper's 'AmeriKKKa' front page headline draws controversy

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The controversial headline of a New York college newspaper is making the rounds on social media. 

SUNY Buffalo State's campus newspaper "The Record" used the headline, "Making AmeriKKKa Great Again" to announce Donald Trump as president for Wednesday's front page story -- spelling America with three K's as a reference to the Ku Klux Klan, which has showed support for Trump. 

In a blog post, the college's president Katherine Conway Turner said the First Amendment gives citizens the right to free speech and freedom of the press. It also encourages anyone to comment on the headline or to email the editors of "The Record."
