In Memory Of "The 'N' Word"...LOL.

"....in the closet, that's ma stuff - yes if i bought it, nigga please don't touch..." -Beyonce

Its been about a year since the NAACP held a mock funeral for the "N" word, complete with a casket and a hymn singing choir. People called it a waste of time...some said it was rather pointless; Others even went "nigga please"...they were all right.

Was it a faked death? Are we facing a ghost, or a zombie?

Truth is, the "N" word is anything but dead and the funeral didn't change shit. The word is no less alive today than it was before it was buried. It sure as hell isn't dead in the entertainement industry which was the NAACP's target...The cartoon show The Boondocks uses it like a conjunction, and if i remember correctly, rapper Nas wanted to title his new album "Nigger".

Honestly, for a word whose derivatives cause harm solely to a group of people, i find it strange that they are the very ones against getting rid of it. One day people throw it around in everyday conversations and the next, somebody's ass is on the line because of "racist remarks".
