    Either your full of BS or you need some serious mental therapy & some jail time.

    You physically assault people causing bodily harm with very little provacation.

    My daughters boyfriend is black & he uses the term all the time.

    It sounds like everyone will be banned from using it. I wonder how he feels about it.

    I also wonder exactly how are they going to enforce this law?
    It's not a law..it's a resolution...BIG difference...kinda like TELLING someone to do something and BEGGING them to do it.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    I personally have several black friends, and have NEVER used the N word.. Not even joking around.. It is very offensive, and not needed.. I hear them call each other that, but that is between two African Americans..
    Social decency is not conditioned on who is using the word. If society deems a word inappropriate, then its inappropriate for everyone. If a word is used frequently, even by African-Americans, then the word has currency in the language. Its very usage makes the word relevant. If you think the word is vulgar, its vulgar for everyone. When a word is not used, and no one ever hears it used, then it disappears from the language. If its bad for the goose, its bad for the gander.

    Re: NY ban N-word

    There is something inherently wrong with banning a word. Racial slurs and the like are offensive, but banning one word gives it place over all others. Is it more wrong for someone to call someone a f@g than a Ni@2^r? Saying that this particular word is illegal makes it more of a crime to use a word demeaning one group than any other. No word should be banned, except for the safety of individuals, that is a violation of freedom of speech, no matter what good it may do I never want thought or speech police in this country or any for that matter. I do not like this even if it is for "symbolic reasons," it sets a bad precedent something American law is based on.
