In this episode Bernard Hankins answers the frequently asked question of why black people are allowed say the word nigger but white people are not. The "N-Word" is a topic that resurfaces everytime an incident involving racism comes to the forefront of American culture. Celebreties such as Don Imus, Paula Dean and Donald Sterling create a buzz around the overall discussion of race, however the root causes of our problems continue to not be addressed. Ratings driven by contreversy, sensationalism, and the easily promotable soundbyte do not allow for a true examination of the issues.
