The N-Word… Let’s Eliminate It For Good! (Mature Language)


A word from Richard Pryor:

Most who stop by “Why O’ Why”, already know my view on this word.  I thought that since you’re (possibly) not hearing a “non-famous person” like me… maybe you’ll hear Richard (one of the many who made that word seem cool).  His statement in that scene is not called comedy– it’s called evolving.  My final thoughts; what I don’t like about the usage of this word is that it appears some black folks have taken it upon themselves to change its meaning as if that is their responsibility.  They are failing to realize– it is the inventors of which that responsibility lies.  We should all abandon this word.  It’s part of history and that is where it belongs.  —  Jazz from the Why O’ Why blog –   August 20, 2010

  1. I’ve been using that word for a while. This makes me think. I’m going to show my parents this clip to see if they know him. I like the comment “what I don’t like about the usage of this word is that it appears some black folks have taken it upon themselves to change its meaning as if that is their responsibility. They are failing to realize– it is the inventors of which that responsibility lies.”

    • Thanks so much for commenting on this particular post. That word has been a thorn in my side since the 70’s! Do share the clip with your mom and dad. I love that Richard Pryor (that’s his name) made it clear that he was actually WRONG for EVER using the word. Feel free to share this clip so that word will finally be squashed!
