Ever wish someone had something insightful to say about the use of the N-word? Well, look no further:
The N-word is a grotesque, odious, evil stain on the English language. … Yet far from receding in society, it’s spreading; out of the once clearly defined confines of private usage in the black community, into the public hallways of every school in America. This has to be wrong, doesn’t it? Better, surely, to have it expunged completely. Eradicated, obliterated, tied to a literary post and whipped into such brutal submission that it never rears its vicious head again.
Those words are from the world’s leading expert on race relations–drum roll, please–Piers Morgan?
Not surprisingly there has been lots of backlash. And also not surprisingly, Mr. Morgan can’t seem to understand why.
Team Blackness also discussed net neutrality, how street harassment is a two-way street (?), and the no memes no #CosbyMeme.
