When I look around I see a lot of people going to extraordinary measures to distract themselves. They talk on Their cell phone.

They type blogs on their iPad. They do all these thing while the world passes them by. The most interesting photos I see on Flipboard are ones of people engaging with other people. We are slowly, or quicker than we where five years ago, becoming comfortable with the notion that cyberspace, the net, "The Matrix", the world of Tron are more acceptable ways of human inter action.

It is ok for African Americans to use it in context between their friends. They may be careful in using it in public around others they do not know (especially if someone feels uncomfortable hearing the word). Is it ok for white people to use the word.... never!
