Agreed. 

But I def see both sides of the n-word/ho/b***h issue and I saw that Oprah episode.  I'm not personally offended when I hear those words and I unfortunately do take the attitude of "well he's not talking about me" when listening ti the record in the club.  Tupac once said something when he was questioned about how he can have an uplifiting song for women and then 2 songs later he has a CD calling women hoes and b's.  He said something to the effect that he's not referring to all women but some women are, in fact, b's. So I dunno how to feel about it, honestly   
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality...  I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word - -Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King
