i caught that oprah special with russel and kevin lyles on the rerun. i go back and forth on the whole n word/derogatory language thing because i see both sides of the issue. i understand what the young ladies were saying about how they feel disrespected and men don't ask to see your college ID before they call you a b-itch etc. but at the end of the day i just kept thinking "man raise your kids!!" stop expecting everybody else to do it for you..."so what some ignorant dude calls you a female dog or a ho, does what he says define you? does that make it so? no! give him the deuces and keep it moving...he ain't the one for you. so what somebody uses the n word, or calls somebody a b on a record or whatever how does that stop you from doing what you gotta do. i understand the history of the n word, i do but it's just a word use it don't use it..bury it whatever we'll just find another derogatory word to call each other. for the record i substitute the n word for other things whenever possible but sometimes when i see some of us doing n-wordish things i gotta admit it's sometimes all i can do not to say it. i'm thinking we're giving the word too much power and that there are other issues that the NAACP could be tackling that would change the conditions that spawned it in the first place.
