As for who would be ejected from a game from calling someone else a slur, I couldn't care less. I don't call anyone by any slurs so it hardly impacts me at all.
Oh and why do I own a book titled n*gger? Because this isn't the first time that ignorance has caused this discussion to surface. The first time I encountered it, I decided to inform myself on the word. And while a silly number like 1/10 of 1 percent may be thrown out there to describe me, it is actually pretty spot on, only on the other side of ignorance. Anyone care to join me and be informed?
I would like to be informed, Ballcoach. I'm spinning with some of these goings-on. I will pick this book up; it sounds fascinating.
Thank you Dingo, please do you will not be disappointed. It covers the history of the word and it gives us many different perspectives on it. One narrow minded perspective is that it is a word of hate. But there are others. And not only the word that the book is titled after, it goes into great detail about other words similar/associated with and what they mean and their impact on African Americans.
Randall is a cool a$$ dude, (no slur intended) and knows his stuff, undergraduate from Princeton, Law degree from Yale, Rhodes scholar, and law clerk to supreme court justice Thurgood Marshal before joining the faculty at Harvard Law. The brotha, (again no slur intended) is down right nasty with his info and experience arguing law issues with regards to law.
Randall also said this "I'm not saying that any particular instance of using the N-word is any more horrifying and menacing than any other such word," he told Daniel Smith in The Atlantic. "I am saying that from a broad sociological view, the word is associated with more havoc in American society than other racial slurs." 
If you wish to debate this issue feel free to bring it over to the Political forum where it is appropriate.
Interesting. So the issue is that its not in the appropriate forum, not that its a slur?
And let's be clear, the word you're talking about is not the word I'm talking about. Of course we can't say which word we're talking about since we're not allowed to write either word or any words associated with them. Pretty silly, isn't it?
I would indeed love to debate it and I suspect that I'd be able to provide a different perspective for you. I can tell you what that book says and what Randall's take is cover to cover. I'm very confident that I understand both the word you're using as well as the one I used as well or better than most. now exactly how will we go about debating the topics if we're not allowed to use either word? You're making my point for me UGLY. If we're too scared to even mention the word, how can we learn and understand each other better? If nothing else, I'm glad to know that you at least see this point.
Let me ask you, did someone complain and if so who was it?
