Jesse and the "N" word...why?
July 19, 2008 9:12am CST
I am a person who thought it was good to bury the "N" word in the first place although I knew it wouldn't work the intentions were great. There is still too much ignorance in the world for that to work; however, the last person I thought would be "caught" saying that word is Jesse. Don't get me wrong I feel that he's one of the most hypocritical, idiotic, racist person's in this world, but I did feel that he was smarter than that. He can support whomever he wants but to speak with Fox in the first place isn't very smart and then to be "caught" saying that is just stupid and he should be driven out of the country. I'm not sure who made him a black-activist in the first place but he was never elected to be the spokesperson over the black race and I wish they would stop allowing his opinions to be realivant regarding any cause concerning African Americans.

He has always been controversial and I couldn't agree more with what you said. The "N" word, however, has in recent years resurfaced. But it's now used among African American teens, who seem to think it's fun to address each other with these and other racial slurs. They think it's okay for them to use, but don't dare to be white and use it. There have already been many confrontations over that. I can't believe it's being done, especially after all the hard work we went through to get rid of it in the first place. Jesse seems to use this term regularly and I guess it slipped out when it shouldn't have. He has lost a lot of support from the older generations, and this shows he is trying to work with the youth to garner support from them. After all, without supporters he wouldn't be 'important' anymore. How would he make a living? lol
