Until it is enacted into a Law, where it is Illegal, to use the so-called 'n' word, you will continue to hear it....mostly by the Black populace.
Notice I said 'Black,' because 'African American' is politically incorrect. The Only way you can be an 'African American' is to have been born there, then, immigrated to the U. S., applied for, & legally obtain your American citizenship. And some folks from there are white, e.g., golfer Gary Player, & actress Charlize Theron.
'African American' has absolutely nothing to do with the color of one's skin. But this term has been widely....& ignorantly....accepted.
Any word, that is in front of the word 'American' is excluding other folks, who do not fit into that group, & is therefore, 'hurtful.'
We have a President who is Bi-racial....not Black. He, & the rest of the 'people of color,' do not acknowledge his half-White side.
We have multi-racial folks in this country, who cannot be categorized into one particular Race.
I Adore Paula Deen, & will continue to buy her products, & I have been systematically dropping every business or group who has dropped her. Wal-Mart, in particular, as they are hypocrites, when it comes to the treatment of their own Black employees.
There's so much more important stuff going on in the country....like, invasion of those who hate us, & wish us harmed, or dead....than for us to be like a dog-with-a bone, by continuing to crucify Ms. Deen.
Enough is enough. Lobby, for your Congress person to propose a new Law, for it to be Illegal, for Anyone, no matter what the color of their skin is, to use the so-called 'n' word, stipulating whatever 'fine' or 'punishment' can result in same, & stressing that it will be enforced.
