    Uhhhhh..................................yeah.

    This is why I think liberals are a bit....odd. That's the word, odd(not, "high," "stupid," or "oxygen deprived," that's just mean, odd is much more PC).

    "Today we're not just burying the N-word, we're taking it out of our spirit"

    by making a lot of fuss about it, as well as a ceremony of burial and putting a big headstone ? sure... ~


    edit : from the wikipedia article about the nigger word :
    "The word can be confused with a Mandarin Chinese word "niga," a connective pause with the connotative equivalent of "ummm" in English." << it might create funny situations

    Also, what about all the literature dating from before this word took a negative connotation ? should the books be burnt ? or maybe the future editions will be edited ?

    What the heck? That's almost as stupid as Germany wanting Hitler not to be a german anymore.

    He wasn't.


    P.S. - He might have been a bad, bad, bad person, but at least you can't say he wasn't a good artist:

    Technically he was stateless. When he arrived in germany he was. But since he was quite "popular" among people back then he got the german nationality.
    Edit: Meh, imho the pic isn't that good and it's quite hard to get into the University for Art at Vienna.

    Hitler's work wasn't that bad at all. Perhaps he just never found a patron?


    And getting rid of the "n-word" is just plain stupid, in recent years, black people have been using it in a neutral (if not positive) connotation to identify themselves. Why kill it now?

    Most people think of him as Austrian.
