    Remember in the movie "Lawrence of Arabia" when Peter O'Toole has that "Aqaba" moment... It was the same for me.

    And for the last 30 years, I would say the GOP mantra has been exactly as I stated.

    I'm living in rural Illinois, but we lived in Chicago and then Detroit when I was growing up. When we moved here, that wad my first encounter with the N word, and door to door racism...

    Effin' wow!

    •  Well, for someone asking for respect (10+ / 0-)

      you sure aren't reciprocating it.

      People are telling you to remove it from your title. People come to the site, look at the list of diaries, and see this word.

      It's not your call to determine what is respectful... You are pushing an offensive word onto people who expect not to have to look at that word when they land at this site.

      You have even less respect coming to you regarding your choice of diary titles if, as you seem to have indicated below, you aren't even African-American.

      I'm sorry, as a white boy, I cannot even begin to comprehend using this word, especially so freely as you have done.

      You want to talk about race? Fine. We do that here. But we do it in a way that maintains respect.

      Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.

      Having the word "nigger"  in the title will set off filters on work computers.
      There is a reason for the rules.
