    Yes, I find it just wrong the way the NAACP is abusing nigger in such a niggardly fashion, especially in comparison to its use(or, more specifically, misuse) by members of their group. I would snigger, but I can't quite bring myself to empathize enough with the stupidity of it all. Why are they so up in arms about such niggling matters, when there are much more important things to worry about? The sheer idiocy of it all...

    it's like the NVidia cascade demo which is supposed to show the possibilities of DX10 but it is in fact coded using OpenGL : marketing !

    I think just can't find any clear lines to fight for anymore so they are making shit up. Instead of working on relevant community building issues in the inner-cities. Instead we are going to try to change history like shit never happened it's just stupid on their part, the history of what the accomplished and fought for was a good thing.

    Hmmm...

    *revels in how pointless their effort was*


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    I fail to see how this would matter either way. There is no real meaning to a symbolic funeral, other than making a point that it's offensive to call someone a nigger, and the general message that racism is bad.

    On the other hand, there's no real harm done either. While I personally think that the NAACP can be monumentally retarded at times, they haven't done anything that bad this time. If they want to make a symbolic gesture it's their choice.

    What makes this so futile is most of these kids running around calling each other nigger, dont even know what it means, where it comes from, and the people that are fighting to change it... these dumbass kids don't even know who they are. Hell little shitheads probably cant spell NAACP.

    >.>

    I don't know who they think they're influencing...

    If this works whatever lobby group there is for women should go about trying to ban the word "bitch".

    This is unbelievably stupid. What kind of morons would come up with such an idea?

    this reminds me of book-burning... absolutely pointless and wasteful way to retaliate against something you don't like.

    It's kinda hard to kill words considering that you don't learn most of your words from reading, but from what you have heard other says.

    Correct. I am as liberal as the next person, but god sometimes things are done so oddly. I mean you can't abolish a word. You know it exists. people say it everyday. It is used in book, music, media etc. The website is called abolishthenword.com my teacher for SS gave us an assignment related to this and we had to write whether this was a good idea or not. As I wrote before it wasn't and it still isn't. How are you going to abolish a word your own people use...
