Black leaders unite in call to end use of the 'N' word

"Reverend Jesse Jackson and Congresswoman Maxine Waters are spearheading a national effort to help eradicate use of the 'N' word in the wake of comedian Michael Richards' profanity-laden tirade at a comedy club."

I'm not afraid to call Rev. Jesse Jackson a "Johnny-come-lately" on this blog, because a few years ago I wrote a personal letter to him in 2004 calling him just that when it came to the slaughter of Black Africans in Sudan. (I wrote that I have never seen him protest that bloodshed like he protested apartheid in South Africa or even when he bussed 2000 people to Decatur, Illinois to protest the expulsion of some Black students from a high school. Then after that, I brought my camera to take pictures at the protest he organized against the slaughter of Black Africans in Sudan.)

The "N"-word existed before Michael Richards was born. If Michael Richards could not perform because of illness, the "N"-word still existed. Ask any gangsta rapper. People, including myself, have always been offended by that word.

Why was there no call to ban the "N"-word a long time ago? Whites and Blacks have been saying it for decades and decades.

Again, Rev. Jackson, is a Johnny-come-lately on this issue too.

Booker T. Washington said:

"There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs....There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."
