I do not think the N-Word is the ugliest word. I think F word F-ur momma, etc. it is just a word. NO I am not Black or a Negro or Mexican, etc. It IS JUST A WORD. I know it has something to do with slaves from back when. What is worse is using Jesus name as a cuss word. But people just throw that out there with no thought. I have heard one black man say to another black man say it to them selves. I have heard it on TV, in person. THEY put nude on TV that is more offensive just like using Jesus names in Vain. When your raised around a culture who use it you are bond to say it, or if your around people. I try not to cuss because it is wrong. But I am around people who do & I fight myself everyday not to but in my mind I want to because I am around it all the time. A slip of a tongue is NOT A HANGING OFFENSE. IF IT IS THAN THE WHOLE WORLD IS OR SHOULD BE HUNG. Paula should be brought back. SOMEONE IS OUT TO GET HER OTHER WISE THIS WOULDN'T HAPPEN. EVERY DAY THAT WORD IS USED ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. I HAVE HEARD BLACK PEOPLE SAY IT TO ANOTHER. To tell the truth I thought that was a race Just like Mexicans, Chinese... I love my friends who are both, etc. Someone is out go destroy her. Wal-Mart, food network are STUPID AS ANY OTHER COMPANY WHO CANS HER FOR THIS. WE all MAKE MISTAKES. THIS IS REALLY STUPID. SHE DID NOT RAPE A CHILD, OR KILL SOMEONE. BUT PEOPLE GO OUT THERE AND HAVE ABORTIONS, ETC. IT IS NOT A CRIME THAT SHE SHOULD BE Destroyed. THEY ALLOW WOMEN TO BE NUDE ON TV, WILL GOOD PERCENT NUDE. SAY THE F WORD ON TV, ETC. BRING HER BACK WITH AN APOLOGY…. Apology from those companies who WERE STUPID TO LET HER GO…. I AM NOT A FAN BUT I DON’T HATE HER, I ADMIRE THE WOMAN SHE IS A GOOD PERSON NOT EVIL. people pay money to hear it, they make movies that people go see using it. Those who direct movies, actors who say it they aren't shamed... SOMEONE wants her destroyed because they don't like her or for some reason. I am not a fan of hers but I have watched her, I don't worship the woman only God, but I do admire her, She is a good woman from what I have seen. This world is crazy allow abortions, but condemns a woman for a slip that others say who aren't famous. She has apologized that is good enough for me. n word is just like the F word to me. THIS is a civilized nation to make a word destroy a person. I have friends who are black, white, brown.. underneath we are all the same but the skin and the cultures. Those who are condemning her should stop to think what wrong have they made in their lives that should have been judged but wasn't..
