A very interesting clip from Tim Wise.
He addresses the N-word in this
video and the difference between whites
and blacks saying it.
I have always obviously been against this word even if the person saying it is black.
I just felt like if black people said it then it gives white people an excuse to
think it is okay to say it, and it is absolutely not.
I just found it disrespectful to both cultures.
Please watch this video and let me know what you think!
