Latest forced apology involving the N word in the wake of the current focus on race relations.

In continuation from what was said in the Scampton memorial thread, I understand that the context is irrelevant when it’s applied with this word for many people, as demonstrated by the amount of complaints received by the Beeb.

However, I do wonder if the same people who have complained also feel the same way regarding the extremely frequent use of the word within other media such as hip hop lyrics?
Agree.

I personally find the F word offensive and the C word even worse. As it’s an extremely derogatory and objectionable word for a part of the female anatomy, its increasingly regular use in the media could offend 50% of the population. Therefore, can we also expect to see complaints and an apology on the same level?

My guess is that it's absolutely fine for a black hip hop performer to use any language they wish. The problem is only when either a non-black person, or person representing what the "black community" see as a "white" organisation, use any of the words that they have decreed can only be used by selected people. I've not get seen any move by them to get Nigeria renamed, something that pretty much proves the point about this being highly selective and discriminatory.

in my opinion they are creating more problems than were originally there. They are in a minority of the black (person of colour) population of the UK.
