N-word under attack in NYC

More in the continuing saga of the word nigger.

A Queens city councilman is on a mission to abolish the N-word.
Democrat Leroy Comrie is so disgusted by the rampant use of the racial epithet that he has submitted a resolution to the Council calling for the "symbolic moratorium on the use of the N-word in New York City."

"Stop using the N-word," Comrie (D-Jamaica) demanded yesterday. "It's racist, it's negative, it's demeaning. It boils my blood, the usage, even in a personal tone between people."

Comrie said the resolution will be formally introduced to the Council Feb. 1, the first day of Black History Month.

"The timing is right," he said. "Monday is Martin Luther King's birthday. February is Black History Month."

We have waddle in the sea of ignorance and the self-infliction of demeaning and degrading one another long enough. Kudos to Councilman Leroy Comrie. We need more pillars of strength around the country to stand up, take a stand against what can be catergorized as acts of self-hate the abominable practice of African Americans referring to each other as the n-word.
