NFL Proposes N-Word Penalty
The really funny thing is how black players N-word each other. Which they will tell you is ok. It’s only when the white guy uses it does it become a problem. Would this be another example of reverse racism?
Check it out:
Have you heard about this? The NFL wants to penalize the use of the N-word — 15 yards — when used by the players on the field during the game. It’ll be a 15-yard penalty for use of the N-word in a league populated by 75% African-Americans. Seventy-five percent of the players are African-American. Therefore, 75% statistically of the use of the word would be by black players. Fifteen-yard penalty. Now, there’s a bunch of ways of looking at that.
The NFL wants to now police the speech that occurs by players on the field during games, and this is not so much because giant, on-field microphones are picking up all these words (other than Peyton Manning and “Omaha”). It’s that they want to clean up the game. They think that there is no excuse for the use of the N-word at any time, by anybody during a game or any time in our society or our culture.
So they are thinking, at the next round of owner’s meetings, of changing the rules to establish a penalty of 15 yards any time the word is uttered. So you’re watching a game and all of a sudden play is in progress, probably during or shortly after the play, a yellow flag goes flying. “What the hell was that?” The first time it’ll be, “Uh-oh, somebody used the N-word, and the ref has gotta go and explain the flag.”
N-word, offense, number 65, 15 yards!
So everybody’s gonna know that number 65 used the N-word. But what about…? (interruption) It’s only the N-word. It’s only the N-word. (interruption) Well, it’s probably not going to be challengeable. (interruption) Because there are slang iterations of it, is your point, right? I mean, it’s not just that cut-and-dried. There are a whole bunch of slang pronunciations of that word by people in the know.
