John Lennon got away with it, didn't he? Anyway, I hope that I don't get into trouble due to my co-bloggers use of the term yesterday.

Jesse Jackson actually had the audacity to say that Nas needs to use his talent to uplift people. Well Mr. Jesse Jackson, who has a child outside his marriage, did you forget that Nas is the artist that made I Know I Can. Now if that is not an uplifting song I don't know what is Mr. Jackson. I also believe that if you keep the bad connotation that is associated with the word than people will always view it as bad, but if you start to put a positive spin on it then the word can be viewed as it is viewed in our communities where that word means a friend. The word Nigger means an ignorant person. Ok a nigger can be black, white, asian, or hispanic. But you have all of these civil rights activist that only associates it with the black community. They are the ones that is the blame for it being viewed negativly towards black people. By the way don't think I'm sone uneducated black guy. I am a 27 year college graduate with a bachelors degree in Information Technology and I also served 4 years in the Air Force.
