It was just last November that the incessantly offensive by former CNN host made a big mess when in an article titled: “If Black Americans Want The N-Word to Die, They Will Have To Kill It Themselves” he explained “N****r” as:
“ ‘N****r’ : A 6-letter noun in the English language which the dictionary defines as ‘a contemptuous term for a black or dark-skinned person”
Backing up his claim for the disdain for the use of the word, Morgan interjected social media statistics into the picture by asserting that according to Topsy.com, the word ‘N****a ‘ or ‘N****r’ is tweeted over 500,00 times a day.
Like many non blacks, it’s not so much as his disdain for the word extends such that he feels the plight of any African American offended by being referred to [as the version ending with ‘r’–specifically] but rather, his stance on the need to eradicate the word is pretty much for the same reason most non-blacks feel about the word and seem so obsessed with wanting ‘in’ on the ‘privilege’ to use it: ‘If you (as a race) use it, why is it so offensive when non-black races use it?’
However, Piers took it even further than that as, his concern was not only of [the typical: if you use it why can’t we?] kind, but added to that detriment (of non blacks not being able to use it); his concern was that non-blacks are even ‘reduced’ to being forced to literally call it: “The N-word” while (by contrast) blacks simply use the word in its entirety (as if it’s black’s cultural privilege and advantage to and over non black’s disadvantage and detriment).
“It’s such an inflammatory and offensive word that for any high profile white person to publicly use it, without abbreviating to ‘N-word’, is rightly tantamount to professional suicide and personal opprobrium.”
That long-winded argument has long been, and will continue to be a hot button debate about as much as a black woman will always be perceived as angry at the turn up of one octave in her voice and passionate speak or a black man perceived as a threat or menace. As Piers defined (yet again today), although not “The N-Word”; #BlackTwitter is defined as merely a mob of black people in search of real or perceived threats while online—however he defined as:
