As a black man, I totally agree with the jury and damages awarded. And to be honest, Anyone who uses the n-word needs to be called out on it. I understand that psychologically, it makes sense to take the word and turn it into a positive instead of letting others use it as a negative to bring you down, but in all fairness, then it would be fair game for everyone to use it as a positive. Hence, that double standard. But that doesn't make the use of it any better, especially when talking down to someone. Use of that word needs to stop outright, and hopefully this is a good first step. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=218430235 BL.
