Comedian Paul Mooney Gives Up The “N Word,” Encourages Fans To Follow
By Dick Johnson from

Following Michael Richards’ appearance on Rev. Jesse Jackson’s “Keep Hope Alive” radio show, comedian Paul Mooney and others are calling for the ban of the “N word.”

This past Sunday (November 26), the former “Seinfeld” star stopped by Jackson’s show to apologize for his racist outburst at West Hollywood’s Laugh Factory. Mooney was present during the broadcast. The comedian has long used the word in his writing, as a stand-up comedian and more recently as a recurring guest on “Chappelle’s Show.” Now, the comedy vet wants to leave the word behind and is hoping that others will follow suit.

“We’re gonna stop using the ‘N word,'” Mooney declared during a recent broadcast on CNN. “I’m gonna stop using it. I’m not gonna use it again and I’m not gonna use the ‘B word.’ And we’re gonna put an end to the ‘N word.’ Just say no to the ‘N word.’ We want all human beings throughout the world to stop using the ‘N word.’

“We gotta take our power back,” he added. “It’s not an equal opportunity word and it’s not a very nice word.”

When asked how he plans on convincing rappers […]

In similar headlines did anyone see the interview with Sinbad about Michael Richards? I think he sums it up perfectly. If anyone has to deal with hecklers it’s Sinbad. Not the funniest man in showbiz…but I do respect the fact that the he doesn’t curse during his act.

    Los Angeles, CA., – Author H. Lewis Smith has written a thought provoking, culturally divided book that will not only spark heated conversation, but can also bring about real change. The N-word is often used in the African American community amongst each other and is generally not a problem when spoken by another African American. However, once the word is used by a Caucasian person, it brings on other effects. The question is “who can use the word and why?” Smith believes it is a word that should be BURIED!!!!

    The book is written in a manner that all can understand. The points are well-taken and the wording is easy to follow. There are quotes from great people in our history including Martin Luther King, Jr., Harriet Tubman, James Baldwin and many, many others. Smith has mixed history with honesty, love with life, education with effects. This is a great book for educators, parents, managers, professionals, newsmen, and anyone else wanting an in-depth look at the N-word, the effects and the solutions. A MUST READ!!!!
