Black Americans Betray Forefathers with use of the N-word Black America's present day use of the n-word is symbolic of an 18th century slave mentality and has no place in this 21st century for liberated-minded people. Descendants of those victimized and dehumanized by this pejorative term who want to keep this word alive in this 21st century by embracing it are committing blasphemy to the sacred memories, struggles and sacrifices of their forefathers.

Boston Celtics' KG and the N-word Kevin Garnett, of the NBA Boston Celtics is a resounding success story in monetary terms; spiritually, however, he is a perfect example of someone floundering through a sea of confusion and mental chaos, and with all due respect needs to stop degrading his Black community with his prolific use of the n-word.

Music's Influence on the Human Mind In any sense, music serves as an influencing factor on the human mind. In the sense of overcoming, music is a powerful tool that can encourage anyone to believe that they can accomplish anything. To the contrary, music--still with its mighty persuasion--can discourage, disappoint and destroy.

UN Treaty on Children's Rights: The Dawning of a Conspiring New World Order? Experts who have studied the document say: "...the treaty, which creates 'the right of the child to freedom of thought, conscience and religion' and outlaws the 'arbitrary or unlawful interference with his or her privacy,' intrudes on the family and strips parents of the power to raise their children without government interference."

Michelle Obama: The true Image of an African American Woman Radio host and political commentator Tammy Bruce's recent tirade labeling Mrs. Obama as 'trashy and fake' because of a personal speech she delivered to a classroom of students in Washington, DC, confirms the fear and anxiety that consumes the hearts of such racist desperadoes.

Black America Under Siege: Without and Within Blacks scream "No Justice! No Peace!"; they march, rally, and protest; they call the police and mayor all kinds of names and demand their resignations; they voice outrage at all the injustices. Yet they think nothing of the injustices they perpetuate upon themselves. They disregard the continual slaying of their ancestors' memories by affectionately and endearingly invoking use of the n-word.

Nas, Genius or a Classic Ninny? For an African American to utilize the n-word says that they do not respect themselves or the constant struggles of their ancestors; for a non-black to use the idiom expresses their disrespect for the African-American culture, and keeps alive the inferior mindsets that have oppressed the black community for centuries. No benefit comes from the use of this term. If it is not good for one group, it is not good for anyone.

African Americans Are Spellbound African Americans from all walks of life-ranging from doctorate degree owners, academia professionals, ministers, politicians, or corporate executives, to ill-educated people-share a commonality when it comes to the n-word: They are mesmerized by its hypnotic influence.

The Pulse Beat of Buffoonery The n-word is a surviving remnant of a psychological warfare conducted to eliminate self-sufficiency; create dependency; manipulate emotions and attitudes to support achievement of an inhuman national objective: mental enslavement of the African American race. The devious objective was effectively attained and continues to live on. The proof: African Americans refer to their brethren, as well as themselves, as 'N**ger.

"CANONIZATION" OF THE N-WORD Through their use of the word, African Americans permit use of the n-word by others. In this same regard, African Americans have no place to be upset with others using the term, nor should they become angry when they find themselves being slighted or disrespected by others-it's human nature not to show respect to someone who has none for him/herself.

AFRICAN AMERICAN'S WATERLOO...THE N-WORD Many African Americans argue and downplay the seriousness of the n-word's ramifications on the black community. They have failed to understand the consequences of defining themselves with such a word.
