The N-WordΒ 

You know what word I am referring to. It is an ugly, derogatory word that has nothing positive associated with it. What bothers me the most about this word is how it has been embraced by so many within the Black community. Some feel that dropping the last two letters and adding an -A- at the end makes it acceptable to use within the Black community. Rubbish! Bologna!! Outrageous!!! Ridiculous!!!! 

That right there is some warped and twisted thinking if you ask me and it does not make an ounce of sense. I am blown away by the sheer number of Black people who refer to one another as the N-Word minus the last two letters replaced with the letter – A-. For years Black people have been trying to distance themselves from this repulsive word and it bothers me deeply that so many Black people do not mind using it. How sad. 

If the Black people who lived back then saw how some Black people refer to themselves and each other as the N-Word, it would probably break their hearts. There are many  within the Black community who share a similar disdain for the use of that word by (some)  Black people and I cannot understand why a Black person would feel so comfortable using such a word. 

You would never catch me using that word in any form or fashion. Why??? Because I do not like to look ignorant and foolish. Ignorance is NOT bliss. 

Until next time…
