You know I am going to try to keep it short on this issue, because it is hot and I get steamy on it. The issue to me in this situation wasn’t that he said the "n" word, because I often wondered if black people could laugh at and ridicule white people how unfair it is that the same can’t be done in reverse. And honestly I think that the "n" word is one that should never be bantered around by any one no matter their colour, creed or race!!!
To me the issue is not only what he said, it was how far he took it and the venom with which he took it. I felt sick after watching the exchange on television. His words and demeanour were so ugly and violent. I almost expected Richards to reach into his pocket and pull out his Klu Klux Klan mask. Good grief what could the hecklers have said that was so heinous that Richards felt provoked enough to want to put them upside down on a fork.
Do I think that the hecklers should get money, I am not sure… but I think that sorrys that are forced because Richards realized he ‘looked’ bad in the press is so not enough!
I do not think that anyone should ever have to experience such hate and I would be up on my soapbox about this issue regardless of the race. Because I so don’t like ugly and this was and is so ugly!
And what did you think?!
