No one (that means blacks, too) should use the "N" word

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s race baiting columnist Eugene Kane writes out of both sides of his computer when it comes to the “N” word. Witness this portion of a November 2006 column:

“Why is it so wrong for a white guy to use the N-word when so many black
comedians and rappers throw it around with impunity?

It's a topic I've addressed for years, including regular conversations with teachers in Milwaukee and elsewhere who express their dismay at hearing the N-word used so frequently by African-American students in the hallways and on the fields and playgrounds.

My standard answer is to acknowledge the word's awesome power to demean and dehumanize when uttered by white folks but also to attempt to explain that for many blacks of my generation and younger, it's never been considered an insult when a black person uses it in greeting or even with affection.”

That’s sheer, unadulterated hypocrisy right there.

Eugene Kane needs to pay more attention to 11-year old Jonathan McCoy…..
