Watching these clips...White Lenny Bruce talking about the word "Nigger." Black Richard Pryor's evolutionary journey through the usage of "Nigger." White Diana Show who couldn't say it. Made me think of the SNL skit Richard did with Chevy Chase about the word association test at a job interview. Paul Mooney,who is new to me, was on Tavis Smiley tonight and it turns out he wrote that SNL skit that sums this white/black language thing so well.

Thanks Stewart--I added the Tavis Smiley interview

I remember the SNL bit when it first aired on SNL, it was very effective ...

If I may, I would encourage you to read (Race Matters) and listen to Cornel West on the heritage of this word and race relations in America:
