Andre Iguodala & the "N" word


What's your take?

1) Should the NBA have fined Andre Iguodala for using the word [N word snip - luv4u] recently during an in-the-locker-room-interview?

2) Do Black Americans who use the same word amongst themselves err, and do they err
when asking others, primarily white people, not to?




*It is not my intention to cause an offense by typing out the word; I'm just working from the
vantage point that it is ultimately just a word.

Words have to be seen in context of their usage. And the fact of the matter is that a Black person using that word is a different context from a non-Black person using it. So it has to be examined on a case by case basis.
