(I should not go down this road…a wiser dude would press delete)


A few years ago Chris Rock went off about how he loves Black folks but he hates N-words.  We know the history of the word “nigger.” During college, we listen to the great Chuck D of Public Enemy say, “every brother, aint a brother because a Black hand took the life of Malcolm X, the man…the shooting of Huey P. Newton..the hands of a nigger pull the trigger.”  


Change in my community that starts with the election of Barrack Obama is a good time to stop using the N-word.  Obama and his Red, Black, White and Brown supporters grew up in sweeter parts of the nation than me or the southern ones are the next generation of less bitter people—that’s wonderful. 


Reality dilemma: what do we do about identifying and labeling actual negative elements and subcultures.  There are sub-groups inside Black, White and any group who should be identified, prayed for, but in the mean time avoided.  “This _______ just robbed his grandmother.”  This blond_____refused medical treatment from an Asian paramedic and bled to death.”  “I have had it with _______ driving in my subdivision with foul music blasting at 3a.m…. some folks had zero home training.”  “_________ never believed Obama could win because they felt ________ are not suppose to be in the White House.”

“Those rotten high school _______ are making school unbearable for good students.” 


Don’t get me started about the denial of righteous sisters about the existence of B-words.  No, people should not walk around calling all women out of their names but we need a word for the worst females.  “That _________ was with that woman’s husband in his wife’s bed and put her panties in the lady’s jewel box.”   “That ______ laughs about getting the money dude should be paying in child support.”  “This stupid ________ killed her sweet kids because her new boyfriend doesn’t like children.”


We should have compassion for those who are “limited” for whatever reason.  In doing my little part for “change,” I will refrain using the N-word and I have never been big on the B-word.  I am replacing both words with “fool.”  As children, we could not say fool in my family—which was odd because we clearly had some fools around. 


While we are at it, “fool” should replace “cracker” when referring to the worst White element also.  Cracker is an interesting word in Georgia because the minor league baseball team in Atlanta before the Braves was the Atlanta Crackers and the Negro League team was the Atlanta Black Crackers.  (I had better leave that alone.) 



Obama likes JFK so in 2009 “Ask not what your country can do for you…ask what you can do to deal with the fool subcultures messing up America.”
