NAACP BURIES N WORD
(2007-07-06)
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - The N-double-A-C-P will symbolically bury the
N-word Monday.
The burial in downtown Detroit and a 2008 presidential candidate
forum will highlight the civil rights organization's annual
convention which begins tomorrow.
More than 8-thousand people are expected to attend.
N-double-A-C-P Board Chair Julian Bond says the organization's
youth are taking the lead in fighting the use of the N-word and
other racial and sexist slurs.
The issue has gained prominence following talk show host Don
Imus' derogatory on-air comments in April about members of the
Rutgers University women's basketball team.
All Democratic presidential candidates and Republican Rudy
Giuliani have confirmed participation in next Thursday's forum.
