The Battle Between Slurs Continues

I usually don’t post entries here, but I found something that might be worth commenting on. It’s the traditional comparison of the n-word to the f-word, but it’s done in a way that I found condescending, as well as ill-informed, and I believe others could find it offensive. I wrote my opinion about it on my blog, and since my piece is more race-heavy I decided against cross-posting here.

Listen to the clip here by clicking on the last link (about Boston nightlife and “is the F-word as bad as the N-word?”) and skipping ahead in the clip about 45 minutes.
