It took Pryor about 10 years to come to his conclusion.
While rappers still utter it on just about every song, men and women still use it in every day language and children are seen using it like it’s nothing on youtube videos, people–Black folks specifically–still get upset with non-Black people use it.
But Pryor took a stance not to give the word power, but to give the respect back to the people that look like him. While this is just one article and it may not change the world, we still like to shine the light and do what we can for our brothers and sisters around the world.
We love you.
