N Word!

Quick what's the first thing that popped into your mind?

Was it the actual word itself? Or was it "Nappy Headed Ho?"

Duane "Dog" Chapman got angry at one of his sons and left a angry, N-word (Didya think of it again?) tirade on the boy's answering machine. And in true celebrity fashion, it has turned up in the news. Heck, even TMZ, who is apparently incensed by the use of the N-word (Didya think of it again?) even let's you listen to the N-word (Didya think of it again?) rant as many times as you like.

First, I expect anyone in Dog's generation to think using the N-word (Didya think of it again?) because it was so common in the South before the 60s. I'm sure my parents have to stop themselves from using the N-word (Didya think of it again?) when they get angry.

Second, if the N-word (Didya think of it again?) is so vile that anyone who uses it must be dragged before the court of public opinion, why do we let CNN use "N-word" (Didya think of it again?) in a headline? Doesn't that just draw attention to the word?

So, when you have those two things together, an older person will just drop the N-Bomb.(Didya think of it again?)

I'm not going to lambast Dog for his angry outburst. Show me one person who hasn't said something he regrets in the heat of anger. Just one. Now if he says it everytime time he talks about his spiritual advisor, Dr. Tim Storey (who CNN quickly points out is black), I would be angry and disappointed.
