What really upsets me about this story is not the fact that Riley Cooper said the racial slur but the hypocrisy of the main stream media, they appear shocked that someone would actually say that word.
Are you kidding me!
I'm a Latino and somehow folks around me feel comfortable saying the N word, actually my dear friends I hear the word 3 or four time a week, that figure double while the Trayvon Martin case was going on.
Let's not act like this is an isolated incident or something rare, I would bet most of us hear some kind of racial slur in a weekly basis.
Most minorities know the score, most of us understand the -wall of silence and the behind the back talk- so please lets all get over this and move on , it is what it is, all the media exposure or false concerns are not going to change anything in our lifetime.
No one but God can change peoples heart.
If one uses the N word I believe it is part of his core believes, there is no crime in that folks, he has every right to his opinion.
A racial slur is like a bullet, you can't take it back, if you shoot somebody dead , they're dead no matter how many apologies one makes.
We can agree on that.
The best thing we can do is to move forward, including the media, dropped it, let it go, his problem will be resolved among his peers.
Once again I want to make it clear - is not a crime to have an opinion - period, he has every right to say whatever he wants, of course there is always a time for discretion. Using a racial slurs when you work in League where Black folks are a majority is just not a bright thing to do.
Now is it?
As always this just a fan's opinion and from what I understand everybody has one and I'm thankful for that.
