Common sense says no. If it aint' right for me to say it, it aint' right for anybody to say it.

Re: Trial set for firing over use of 'n' word

This will no doubt all depend on the color of his "peers". I could certainly see how blacks could be offended by the use of the word nigger. But unless it becomes a crime for anyone to use the word ( and I can't think of a single example of language being illegal, other than "fire" in a movie theater) then I believe if blacks can use it, so can I.

At work we have had white people suspended without pay for using the "n" word but the won't do anything to the african americans that use it. i think that it is a double standard and if its wrong for one then its wrong for all.

That word is used more by black folk than it is by white's and by a bunch I'd bet.

Call me anything but late for dinner!
