I suppose I'm all alone on this but I'm really tired of media and others calling something a " 'letter' - word" instead of just coming right out and stating the word. We are all humans and know the score. To me it just sounds lame.
On CNN right now they have two sub headlines with "N-word" in them. What what!
Instead of stating the word and upsetting people they use the the first letter then "word" .
I think others understand what I'm saying as there is this movie about a community softball league where oneof the white players is continually gigging a Black friend on racial jokes.in oneof them he starts it off with " A rabi , a priest and an N-word walk into a bar...."
I don't know what to call it. Why do it. .
Are we going to end up using the expression "mother F-worder"?
If we don't count our blessings We are just wasting our time
