    Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, et al would never use the N-word on the air or allow their callers to use it either. I don't know how we could blame them for its expanded use.

    •  Because they convince their white listeners (0+ / 0-)

      that they are the victims of reverse racism.  Limbaugh et. al. scapegoat minorities, especially blacks, for most of America's problems, making it clear to loyal listeners that it is the blacks who are taking his tax money, his job, his country, all as a sort of revenge.  "Slavery reparations" is a common code for the blacks are comin' to GET YA!  Rush doesn't have to say the n-word, all he has to do is gin up anger at blacks, and his rabid listeners do the rest.

      •  Limbaugh et al don't convince whites that they (0+ / 0-)

        are victims of reverse racism. They already believe that. The radio guys just reinforce that belief.
           I think that in a culture that is so materialistic and so focused on money and status, those who don't have it want to blame somebody.
           The resentment is not just directed at ethnic minorities. It is aimed at the wealthier and more educated.
