Straight Talk About the N-Word with Dr. Neal Lester

Like no other word in the English language, the N word spawns leading news headlines particularly when celebrities utter it: comedian Michael Richards, Dog the Bounty Hunter, John Mayer, Mel Gibson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, Barbara Walters, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, or Jesse Jackson, Sr. This word shows up in American childhood rhymes and ditties, in minstrel songs that are now popular Disney children’s songs and in commercial advertisements. It punctuates some rap songs, is euphemized, buried in mock funerals, and bleeped from media broadcasts.
