We live in a topsy-turvy world where people are far more offended if someone says “nigger” than if they act like one. Thus, last week’s sentencing of three black Marines who murdered a fellow white Marine and his black wife received almost zero notice in the national press. (…)
So I suggest an entirely different tack, one more along the lines of “Draw a Cartoon of Muhammad Day.” The only way to strip the word of the “power” that people insist it has is for everyone to start saying it as often as possible. I suspect the only thing that will stop this insanity is for everyone to start saying the word en masse like a sudden populist upsurge of racial Tourette’s. Let it burst forth like an epidemic of niggerrhea. Throw the word right back in the faces of the pious turds who use it to destroy careers through cowardly festivals of public shaming. I’m only half-joking when I suggest that the only rational solution for this ceaselessly embarrassing national moral panic is for people to start filming themselves saying the word “nigger” and posting it online.
Here…I’ll be the first.
