The N Word

To my loyal readers: I must warn you, this is the most controversial article of which I have ever written.

The N word has no place in today's society. I will never condone it by anyone.

The View, of which I consider to be my guiltiest pleasure, has tackled this subject in the past.

The N word simply has no place in today's society.

It conjures up a view of America as racist, discriminatory, and hateful.

Why is it acceptable for rappers to employ this term at their will?

Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepard, two African American hosts of The View, argue that it is their right to make the term their own.

But why?

Why must we revert ourselves back to a bleak period of American history?

This heinous word has no place in modern times. I will never condone any usage of it as it is an archaic and asinine term.

In no way is it productive, and it serves no purpose in progressing this great nation.

Sadly, the African American community has tried to adapt this word into their pop culture everyday vocabulary yet it does nothing to bridge the racial divide within this country.

The sooner we can do away with this antiquated terminology, the less divisive America will become.

I applaud your tackling of taboo issues Casanova.
I agree that the "N word" should not be spoken in the public eye and only serves to fuel race discrimination.

Very well written. I loathe the term as well.

Casanova, most days you leave me speechless by the conservative crap that you write. But today I am speechless for an entirely different reason. Bravo.
