Race Matters: Sports Commentators Admit To Using The N-Word “All Day, Every Day”

Entertainment, Sports

In the wake of Matt Barnes’ n-word laced tweet Wednesday night, sports media has been forced to rehash the age-old debate about the word, who should (or shouldn’t) be allowed to use it, and more importantly, who should police its use.

On yesterday’s episode of ESPN’s Pardon The Interruption, Chicago native co-host Michael Wilbon shockingly admitted, on live TV, that he uses the n-word “all day, every day of my life”

It’s not often, if EVER, that you hear a black media member speak so candidly and honestly about how they use this word in their daily lives.

Similarly, TNT’s Inside The NBA co-host Charles Barkley echoed these comments and even took it a step further by admitting that he uses the n-word not only with his black friends, but with his white friends as well.

How do you feel about white people attempting to dictate how black folks (or friends) communicate with one another? Are Charles and Michael wrong for continuing to use the n-word in this day and age??
