In The Woodpile

One of the problems with the n-word is that young, and increasingly not so young, African-American men use it, thereby influencing global youth culture.

Thus, Anne Marie Morris seems somehow less shocking.

Those who spatter it around need to consider that as their fairly near ancestors were being lynched, a word was chanted at them by their murderers.

They need to consider that as their fairly near ancestresses were being raped, a word was shouted in sexual ecstasy by their rapists.

Do you know what that word was? Of course you do.

It is not OK. It will never be OK.

If you cannot see that, then you have lost touch with a lot more than the streets. And losing touch with the streets is bad enough.
