    An Assembly candidate whose campaign sent mailers using the word “negrohood” to residents in his Sheepshead Bay district apologized Wednesday — calling the racially tinged language a “typo.”

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    I'm not sure "typo" would be a good explanation. Sabotage perhaps. I have a habit of writing "black (block) party" or "on another black (block)" and "plam" for "palm" but "negro" for "neigh"? I'd go with sabotage, it's more plausible.
