Show Halted over N-Word...

MIAMI -- A performance by stand up comedian Eddie Griffin was stopped after he used the N-word repeatedly, a magazine's spokesman said Wednesday.

I am glad to see that organizations out there can and will take action when ANYONE uses that word or any other word that is deemed inappropriate. I also hope that this spreads so that the people in the black community can understand that the word is terrible regardless to who is saying it. I have heard the many excuses as to why they can say it and no one else and that they have been the people of shame and that the use of it is ok because their the ones using it and no the white people. A friend of mine who is black agrees with me that this definitely has to stop now, even if it means canceling a performance.
