    This is an amazing young man doing a positive thing for black people. I think he not only deserves our respect but our support. I think about how many times growing up (in the 60’s) I had to fight because of this word being hurled at me in hatred. It sickens me to think that anyone would use this word as nonchalantly as people do today. I hear people of different races using the word,as what I’ve been told, a term of endearment. This word is anything but a term of endearment. There is no way to ever use this word in love. This word was not created to show love. Let’s not kid ourselves. Let’s not be fooled into thinking that is ok to use a word that spews hate. when they were directing fire hoses at our grandparents and calling them n’s this was not love. This young man is trying to wake us up. Money means nothing for making a record if you are selling you soul!!!!

    • I appreciate your perspective and you are right. It was created out of hate, …but what dont kill us only makes us stronger. We got to take the good with the bad. If you can follow me. one

    The N-word should indeed be banned in everyday speech. However, we should not abolish study in school of literary works that use the word–for example, Mark Twain’s HUCKLEBERRY FIN. Class discussion could and should make clear that these words, totally unacceptable today, were commonly used in the past, that they were emblematic of deeply entrenched prejudices and discriminatory practices. School reading assignments and holdings in school libraries should NEVER be censored but should instead be used to foster “teachable moments.”

    • Very well put Alma. We should not just “banish” words, its not going to solve the issues of prejudice. I agree; we should use these moments to educate not only our young blacks, but all races that hate isn’t a way that is productive and only limits us “all” from growth as a world.

    A friend of mine emailed me a link to this video. I am speechless. Tell him to keep striving for greatness. The term “Each one reach one, reach one teach one.” This is what makes me proud to know that all of our kids are not trying to fit in with the crowd but be pioneers on their own path. That young man truly has blessed a number of people down here in Alabama and abroad. I had to post it on my facebook page. Again, I am truly blessed to have heard such profound words from a intelligent young man. May God continue to bless you and yours.
