Undressing the N-word examines how is it that those who were once victimized by a word now embraces it as a term of endearment, offering explanations as to why such demeanor is unhealthy not only for the Black
community but our nation in general.

How did the Black African American community come about seeing and using the n-word as a term of endearment?  Just what is the true significance of their use of the word n**ga?  The answers to these questions and much more are revealed offering insight into how it is that the Black African American community is a walking contradiction relative to their use of the N-word adding fuel to misunderstandings, confusion, chaos and disrespect.

To demand respect one must have self-respect, the history of the n-word dictates that it is not an honorable or respectable word, thus not all African Americans embrace the term.  Nonetheless, far too many Black Americans do use the term, bringing disrespect on all Black Americans. This creates tension and misunderstandings, and the matter needs to be resolved, not to just assume it will evaporate into thin air all by itself.

Undressing the N-word tackles the issue offering solutions emphasizing why if the United States of America the greatest country on earth is to make even greater strides in human relations, both Black and White America must be able to respect one another, and to  not allow itself to be held hostage by the n-word.

Keeping that word alive keeps its history alive, thus making everyone uncomfortable. Bury the word and its history is buried right along with it.  This is not to suggest that an attempt is being made to make the word vanish into thin air...that’s impossible.  It's as much a part of American history as the Boston Tea Party, Civil War, slavery, etc.  But it can be made to vanish from everyday speech.

To get this accomplish that word must be undressed and shown for what it is.  It can be tantamount to having an aching tooth pulled, you hate going to the dentist, but once the tooth is pulled the tooth ache goes away. Undressing the N-word exposes the n-word for what it is, why it's not a term of endearment, and why it needs to be buried, banned, eradicated and abolished.

No stone is left unturned, whatever, questions are concerns you may have as a white or black person relative to this issue is addressed and dealt with.
