    Default If black Americans want the N-word to die, they will have to kill it themselves

    If black Americans want the N-word to die, they will have to kill it themselves
    By PIERS MORGAN 10 November 2014

    N****r.

    A 6-letter noun in the English language which the dictionary defines as ‘a contemptuous term for a black or dark-skinned person’.

    It’s such an inflammatory and offensive word that for any high profile white person to publicly use it, without abbreviating to ‘N-word’, is rightly tantamount to professional suicide and personal opprobrium.

    I don’t use it; would never use it. But it has become astonishingly ubiquitous in modern American society.

    According to a new data survey by social media analytics Web site Topsy.com, it will be used, either as ‘n****r’ or ‘n***a’, 500,000 times on Twitter today.

    I travel for a living and a few months ago I was at a mall walking around. Walking behind a group of young black guys I must of heard the N word a half dozen times in a couple of minutes. A certain segment of the black community certainly has no problems using that word.

    If every black man and woman stopped using that word there would still be certain sections of this country where that word is as embedded as y'all or reckon. It is taught in areas of the south like the Palestinians teach their kids to hate Jews and until there is a mass cultural shift, it is here to stay.

    The difference is I don't think those pockets of the population are as big as they used to be, while the use by young black men seems to have increased majorly during my lifetime.

    And as long as young black men continue to throw it around, that gives the old white racists a way to justify using it, too.

    I've lived in both the north and the south, and I think this idea that there is some preponderance of racists in the south in comparison to northern states is a leftover stereotype from a bygone era.

    More racist in the south? Sure. But I don't think it is by much.
