H. Lewis Smithabout this book: This book is about the n-word n**ger/n**ga. Its purpose is two-fold, to educate and inform. It examines Black America's use of the pejorative term, with the clarification that not all Black African Americans embraces it. An element within the Black community claims the word as a term of endearment, and that they've taken a negative and turned it into a positive.
Albeit, man can change the definition of a word on a whim, he cannot change the history behind the word for it is indeed STATIC. If by chance someone has the ability by some sort of miracle to obliterate the wrongs done against the ascendants of African Americans all in the name of the n-word, restore life to those dehumanized, murdered, butchered, slaughtered, honor to the dishonored, property to those who have been wronged and force the scales of human and divine justice to recover their equilibrium then and ONLY then perhaps the n-word can be embraced and used endearingly. Unless such a task can be accomplished the n-word will eternally remain to be an immoral obscenity no matter whose lips it flows from.
This raises the question why would anyone in their right mind embrace and use such a word as a so-called term of endearment? Undressing the N-word provides the answers, taking a look at how the tentacle effects of the n-word has spread into many facets of American life and the consequences of it all.
There are many arguments pro and con relative to the use of the n-word all of which are examined and dealt with.
