Don Lemon says everyone should stop saying the n-word…is he right?

DON LEMON-Very frequently I hear young people of all ages, in public, who can barely get through a sentence without using the word; even calling each other n-words — of all different ethnicities. Clearly Justin Bieber, a young man who by the way, has immersed himself in black, Hip Hop culture should not be saying the n-word. So the question is, if you want people like Justin Bieber to stop using it and to stop making excuses for using it, shouldn’t you do the same?
Lemon is being branded online as an idiot, but what do you think?

Is Justin Bieber a racist?

Donald Sterling made racist statements to his girlfriend in a private conversation. That leaked conversation cost him his NBA franchise. This week two Justin Bieber tapes have been released and he has been casually dropping the n-word. There is talk that there is a more extensive tape yet to come. The first tapes were dismissed as the youthful mistakes of the superstar, but really how long is he going to get a pass? Paula Deen lost part of her empire, Sterling lost his franchise. What is Bieber going to lose?

Class of 2014 Welcome to the Real World?

class of 2014

Every year millions of young people graduate from high school and college. The students change and the times change, but the message given to students has stayed the same. Students are told at graduation that they will now be entering the real world. Gone are the days of good times. It is now time to keep your head down and plow through to reality, but aren’t these kids actually living in the real world? School is no longer a safe haven. Some schools are more akin to a war zone than an institute of higher learning. Guns and knives are appearing with more and more frequency in small hamlets and big cities, Cyber bullying allows perpetrators endless hours to intimidate vulnerable young people. Some teachers have become sexual predators that have easy access to victims that innocently sit in their classrooms. So what part of this is not the real world? Our young people have their feet firmly planted in the real world. Maybe the phrase should be welcome to the work world or welcome to college life. Sadly the Class of 2014 did not grow up in a Utopian environment. They know the world is a cold place and hopefully during their time in school they have developed survival skills necessary to enter and conquer it.

What fuels the rage?

A few days ago two women got into a fight in Baltimore. One woman got so angry that she got into her car and drove it into the woman and two children that were sitting near her on the steps of a church. The woman on the steps and a two year old boy were killed and the third victim is hospitalized and expected to recover. The woman driving the car fled the scene, but she has since been arrested. My question is what fuels this kind of rage? How does an argument go from words to someone getting behind the wheel of a car and plowing into a group of people? What can justify this kind of action in an individual?
