    Burial of a word...what a pointless symbolic action. If they truly wanted to reduce the use of that word they'd ask parents to please slap their kid upside the head the next time they hear them say it and tell them to watch their language.

    Yup for anyone that watches the Boondocks they know what the granddad does lol. Like I said before you can't bury a word your own people use.

    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

    CPR the banning of a racial slur is not stupid. It is futile but the premise is quite noble. If someone petitioned to ban cracker, kook, chink, etc then it wouldnt seem quite as silly. Although its a flawed comparison since none of those words have any where near the social permeation of "nigger".

    Of course we would love to have no racial slurs. As well as no wars, famine, ect. What they did is too idealistic to ever be practical.

    I will confess, when I read the thread title, I thought it was going to be about Death Note.

    When you try to bring something down like that it will only make people more aware of the subject you are trying to get rid of. i.e you tell someine not to do something 9/10 they will want to do it more.

    So if the word nigger is gone what about sand nigger, my friends dad has called me that since the 7th grade.
