I disagree totally. I think richards is merely channeling the "whitey is racist" rhetoric in the public race dialogue put forth by every black "leader" and pandering politician and entertainer out there.
It's official: if you drop the n-bomb you are a racist. Using it as ammo in a verbal attack makes one a racist.
it is a completely illogical argument. totally nonsensical. richards used the word as invective, nothing more. he wasn't making a prejudicial statement about blacks as a whole.
