    Saturday Night Card Game (I Hate That Word)

    Saturday Night Card Game (I Hate That Word)

    This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:

    I will not use that word even to talk about the word.  I will not say the word even in condemning people who call other people the word.  I also will hesitate to say words that sound like the word even if they mean something completely different, because the word is that bad. 

    If it were up to some people, the word would be removed from the dictionary, as if the word, and not the thought behind the word, were the problem.

    I hope we all can agree that no one ever should be called the word, even by comedians or people who are not comedians but are trying to be funny.  There is nothing funny about the word.

    Anyone who uses the word should not be on television or radio.  Because those airwaves belong to all of us.

    The fact that some people who are called the word have used the word themselves, in a different context, makes no difference.

    Do not use the word.  Period.

    You know what I’m talking about, don’t you?

    I’d tell you myself, but then I’d have to use the word.

    It won't save you from being called a racist for opposing any Obama policies … your skin color is all that some people require …

    I had assumed a referrence to the growing list of letters (formerly only F and N) with a "-word" following it…I truly hate those expressions.
