What New Will CNN Teach Us About 'The N Word'?

July 1, 2013 - 12:49 PM

It's dicey to be talking about a program that hasn't aired - but, when it's titled "The N Word," there are very few places it can go. And, seeing how this is being aired in the middle of the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman trial, one can only be suspicious of the motivations behind creating and airing such a special.

Scary promo, right?

I mean, seriously, do you really think it takes Don Lemon to explain the dos and don'ts of using the n-word? All you'd see is what happened to Jackie Chan in "Rush Hour" when he used the n-word in front of a bunch of black folk. If you didn't see it, then imagine saying the n-word in front of black people and not being Jackie Chan.

Sorry, but this smacks of pure blaxploitation (never thought I'd use that word outside of a Quentin Tarantino reference) and setting up a need for yet another "discussion" on race once the trial verdict is in and all hell breaks loose in Florida, which I believe CNN wants.

Would make for great television, you know.

Knowing how liberals do these things, get ready for a deep and probing discussion of who can use the n-word and who can't use it.

If you really needed CNN to tell you this, all I can say is that, depending where you live, you're lucky to be alive and not sipping your veggies through a straw.
