The new N word yet Old?
The hot topic in Washington is the N word. Allegedly, Harry Reid the Majority Leader referred to President Obama as light-skinned American American that did not sound or speck negro unless he needed to do so. This has outraged the right and now call on him to resign.
On the other hand, Trent Lot, former Majority Leader resigned after remarks he made praising Storm Timon's 1948 run for president as a segregationist.
The real problem is the N word is still a problem. Some people taught that this would be3 all over once President Obama was elected. This is not true. The N word is now negro. The point is that he can speak Negro. This is new. Is it like Ebonics or is it different?
We need to get past this and fast. There are too many people out of work. People are losing their homes. We are fighting a war. Does the N word have anything to do with our real problems? Does Canada have such issues?
We need a better school system to flush these type of issues out in the classroom and not the world stage. I bet some one is having the laugh of a life-time looking at The USA. What should we do? No More N Words or What?
