Race Does Matter: Barbara Walters can never say the N word, But Rick Perry cant run for President

See full size image

Let me first start by saying that I don’t watch the view, nor am I really a fan of the show. But this story has been getting a lot of attention and I just wanted to make sure that true issue in this story does not get overlooked.

The issue, if you have not heard was that Barbara Walters decided to you the N word on The View. Now here is the context of what exactly happened and why she said it.  Texas Governor Rick Perry, his family, and friends have been going to a hunting lodge for years. Now this is where the issue comes in at, there is a rock outside the gate of this camp with the word ‘Niggerhead’ on it. Just recently Rick Perry came under fire from the media about the lodge’s name. Now why in the hell would you name any place Niggerhead, and of all places a hunting lodge in Texas, if that is not racist I don’t know what is. What would be the reason for this lodge being called, ‘niggerhead’? I have no issue with Rick Perry going to this lodge with his entire family and all his face book friends, and twitter followers. But you can’t do that and then run for President of the United Stated of America and expect to have the full support of all Americans. Reports are saying that 3 years after Rick Perry's name was added to the lease on the property that the rock was painted over. So it took you three years to decide that you wanted to paint over a rock with a racist name on it?

Now what I don’t want to happen with this story is that the real issue gets pushed aside and everyone takes it out on Barbara Walters. Granted she should not have used the word period, I think sometimes people want to get away with using when they think no one will have an issue. I don’t care if it’s a line in your favorite Jay-Z song, the title of a book, or the name of a lodge just in case you didn’t know Barbara Walter’s: YOU SHOULD NEVER USE THE WORD NIGGER, at least on TV, you can say what u want when you’re at home.  This is just my opinion and you can say whatever you want about black people being overly sensitive, but if the shoe was on the other foot white people would have a problem if President Barak Obama's favorite restaurant was called 'crackerhead' or What if his favorite place to eat when he  traveled was Cracker-barrel? The two words do not have the same historical connotation and do not evoke the same emotion.

Please let me know your thoughts about Rick Perry, The niggerhead lodge, and Barbara Walter's use of the word even in context of the story that was being reported??

Check out this week's Poll Question - How long does romance last in a committed relationship?

How long does it last? I believe it lasts as long as you both want it to.  I also believe you have to try very hard to keep things spicy in any committed relationship.  My husband and I try to have regular date nights for example. What are your thoughts? Answer the poll question on the upper right hand side of the blog and please feel free to leave a comment also.
