    If you're smart, you just never add an "R" period. Just let it end in an "A"

    Re: Philly WR Cooper racial slur and McCoy's reaction

    The fact that the word ****** is used in popular culture and in music doesn't immediately make it ok for someone to yell that he is going to "fight every ****** here". I think this is being blown out of proportion to a certain extent as well, but to say that it's not a big deal because you hear it used in music or in movies is a little silly.

    If he had used the word "black" or "African-American," it could have been just as racist (although perhaps not as inflammatory).

    The only mind numbing thing about this is that people are somehow shocked and surprised that some hillbilly cracker in a sleeveless shirt dropped an N-bomb at a country music concert of all places.

    I agree, but is it not also silly that you hear such an offensive term so often in pop culture? I mean, at some point, guys like Jay-Z should forfeit the right to get angry at people saying it. He's one of the icons who have made it so popular.

    Re: Philly WR Cooper racial slur and McCoy's reaction

    What bothers me is that I would expect most white people never to use the word. I can honestly say I've never used it or thought it. It only comes out if you are drunk if you've used it a lot.There are cultural issues with African Americans using it and I don't understand them but I wouldn't be happy with anyone I knew using that word out of anger, drunk or not.

    Maybe, you can't expect everyone to abide by the rules and not use words that are considered vulgar. The kind of language used in movies and music and on tv today would shock someone from 50 years ago, not even including the use of the n-word. It's a little different because that word is specifically demeaning to a specific group of people whereas the f-word for example is just a general swear word, but same principal.

    It could also be quite racist for certain people to enjoy hearing the word used in songs, even if they never say it themselves. I think plenty of this is going on with those who listen to some of these songs, especially younger kids who are just emerging in their own personal racism.

    No, it's totally a PR thing to announce that "you're seeking counseling." Counseling for what? Either he's a racist, or just stupid. There's no "counseling" for that...

    Actually, there is counseling for both of those things.
