Should The N-Word Be Banned…Again?

nword ban

Every few years, a discussion comes up as to whether or not we should ban the N-word. Usually, it happens after some closeted celebrity bigots finally loses it in public and show just exactly what he or she thinks of black folks.

This time around, it was the good doctor and Cruella Deville look-a-like, Laura Schlessinger, who verbally attacked a black woman that called into her radio show last week seeking advice to deal with her white husband’s racial insensitivity.

    Freedom of speech dictates that banning a word is not going to happen. And I think that if a white person are hispanic person are whomever wants to use the “N” word by all means do so, I for one wanna know who my adversary is, and when you do call me out my name please don’t apologize,I have more respect for those who don’t throw a rock and hide they’re hand, that way I can deal with you accordingly.

      I agree with enuff is enuff

    • chaka1

  • AHHHHHHHHHHHSHADDAAP!!!!

    As long as there are rednecks and ignant c.o.o.n.s, you can bet your sweet a.s.s. the word will never be banned.

  • Allie

    How are you going to ban a word? that’s my question, personally i don’t like the n-word but no matter what people are going to continue to use it, so why try?

  • Ms.Drizzy

    yes it should be banned… by white folks !

  • MelT

    I am not interested in controlling the actions of others. Thus, the term “ban” is where you lose me. However, I do believe in individuals exercising self-control. I am tired of the endless diatribes about the word. How about those concerned take a stand to start locally…meaning focus your attention on those closest to you. In your home, at your Church/Temple/Synagogue/Community Cnter/Insert other here :)/, in your schools, on your street, within your subdivision, rental community, senior facility, hospice, WHEREVER YOU ARE..start right there…

    • Tee

      I am in agreement with you. It starts with each individual. I have no love for the word. It is not used in my home, my surroundings. I have been confronted by OTHERS who have spoken it in front of me and have used that lame excuse about rappers and comedians. Well Call the rappers and comedians that and leave the rest of us alone.

  • Sabrina The Teenage Bytch

    IF the N-word was banned 90 percent of the White population will implode into pure Doom and die because they wouldn’t be able to talk shyt about Black people any more.

    Besides you can’t Ban a word, that sounds ridiculous. People are going to say w/e they want to say.

  • yeah OK

    I say let people say what they will…but if u get ur teeth knocked down ur throwt, hey its on u….I said u can say it.HAHA

  • don't ask

    Why not ban it among ourselves? How can others respect us when we don’t respect ourselves? By the way, speaking of free speech, in what way would you use it in a sentence that would be appropiate? It’s a useless word.

  • AHHHHHHHHHHHSHADDAAAP!!!!

    ‘Ban’ the N-word? N*gga please.

  • Cervantes

    Isn’t the term a slur of the Latin for negro, describing a color?
    Whites are called gringos by Hispanics, it’s a slur on the Latin for the word griego, meaning Greek which I guess Hispanics equate to white folk.
    Why not just ban colors and that Sesame street bit “one of these things is not like the others”, that’s discriminatory to point out a difference in somethings existence..I agree with
    AHHHHHHHHHHHSHADDAAAP!!!!

  • uh huh!

    PLAIN AND SIMPLE YES!!! ISNT IT OBVIOUS?? WHAT IS IT THAT PEOPLE DONT UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE “N” WORD.. ANY WAY DICE IT, SLICE, OR FRY IT! THERE IS NO EXPLANATION IN THE WORLD THAT CAN CONVINCE ME OTHER WISE!!!

  • Ms.T

    @JohnD TELL EM!

  • Leethea Boisierre

    Hmmm banning the N word from use is a nice gesture but I wonder why is it ok for others to use it when I have witnessed gays saying thw F word to each other but others would not dare say it or be labeled homophobic I have also seen Latinos called each other Spic but if you do it try making it out the room in one piece so why is it ok to just insult and disrespect blacks about things we do within our own culture? Were not respected and we have no unity and everyone knows it we side with people who look down on us. Banning the N word won’t stop people for coming up with other ugly words to describe people they don’t respect.

    • deesac

      There you go why do we alway have to through HOMOSEXUALTY in with everything that refers to black ppl there no one in here talking about your sexual preference.

  • HF

    How in the name of all that’s not censorship and Orwellian do u BAN A FRIKKIN’ WORD???

    1. Like the article said, u ban n****r, ANOTHER slur will replace it.

    2. We ban n****r, then what word do we ban next? Don’t stop there, what speech and books do we ban next? Keep going, what thoughts do we make illegal? Once the genie is out of the bottle, how do u put it back in?

    Following the ban “logic” we should ban “queer” because gay people say it. We should ban “redneck trailer trash” because whites say it. We should ban b-i-t-c-h because women use the word.

    on and on…

  • deesac

    Well freedom of speach right of course white folks can use it anytime they want. I believe they should un-ban the right to bitoch slap a person for saying something stupid or offensive.

  • Rihanna'sSharpNPointyWitchyFingernailsTookTheOath

    if people don’t have enough respect for themselves and others to not use it, “banning”(whatev that may mean) isn’t going to work. How can a word be banned? This is just ridiculous. Let’s stop giving this b.s. any weight. fu ck a cracka

  • romaro1

    YES! But it crazy that Blacks think they are the only ones who can use and not get mad because others do. Its ignorant, pure ignorant!

    • Ms.Thickness
