We are a sick, sick society when we have to act like children rather than deal with the issues at hand. Pee-pee. Potty. Now we can adults can add the N-word into the equation so we can act like children. Give me a friggin’ break.
This isn’t directed at you, just the stupidity of it all.
Not to get too far off topic, but unfortunately when talking about QT, the word nigger is always on topic. And that's the problem. If it were just in this movie, it wouldn't be an issue. But it's in all of his movies, and way too often.
Now, as to how I feel about societies shunning of the word, and using the first letter in it's place. I can't say that I agree or disagree with it. I do agree however, that once the sting of the word is gone, saying it won't be that big of a deal. But then you're at an impasse, as saying it will lessen the import placed on it, but you don't want to say it because of the anger it engenders. I don't think society is being less adult by avoiding saying it, as much as being not forward thinking enough. But, when do you forego sensitivity to maybe solve the problem? Because, while you as a white male sees things one way, me, as a black male see it totally different. To you, the word may just be a hurdle to get over, where I see the word as merely the vocalization of a number of feelings, emotions, memories, and a reminder that the world is very different, but still very much the same.
Anyway.......I liked the movie, but it was too long and not awesome enough.
