    Black folks! We've lost the N-word debate!

     
    It is silly for black people to get offended when other people use a term that we popularized. If we really want to get upset with others like Gwyneth Paltrow, we have to stop publicly using the word ourselves. It's really that simple. We degrade our own culture like it's a hobby and so we can't be upset that others feel comfortable using a term that we popularized.
