As we count down the days to the event, we want you to share your thoughts about "N-word's Past vs N-word's Present" by using the event hashtag #NwordPast-Present on Twitter or posting to the Foundation's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/honeybrownhope). We've included some questions below to spark the conversation. Sound off and let us know what you think!
Why is community activist, Tammie Lang Campbell who buried the n-word on national TV in 2007, redefining this racial slur in 2013?Should media use the sanitized n-word version while children are exposed to “ni**er” in educational materials? Why is Samuel Jackson fighting to be called the n-word in “Django Unchained”after his ancestors, like Buffalo Soldiers, refused to be called the n-word and fought and died for dignity? In 1966, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said that he wondered if he had a new name after being called the n- word in Chicago so many times. In 2013, how do you think our first African-American president and former Illinois senator feels when he is called the n-word? Do you think Americans agree or disagree with Senator Robert Byrd’s 2001 “there are white ni**ers” statement on Fox News?
