Can I Have A Word With You?

“Our current President isn’t the first one to use the N-word, but I hope he’s the last. I find the word offensive because of what it stands for. I also hope this nasty word stops being used in songs even with an ‘a’ on the end of it. It seemed to be dying a slow death years ago, and mostly only whispered by ignorant people with anger in their eyes. Now when I hear any form of the word spoken by a person of color, I imagine racists laughing and saying. ‘They use the word and call themselves one.’ Some words just shouldn’t be said, no matter what the intention behind it may be. If I called my wife a ‘biotch,’ all hell would break loose.”
