Oprah Winfrey's new movie "Lee Daniels' The Butler" is sparking a new debate over the use of the "n” word. Oprah told Anderson that she doesn't use it partly because that was the last word some of her ancestors heard when "they were strung up to a tree." But plenty of other people use it freely. Wolf discussed this with B.E.T. editorial brand manager Michaela Angela Davis, and Andre Perry, the founding dean of urban education at Davenport University.
Hi all, I was wrong 30 years ago. And I apologize. I used the 'N' word. I used it 29 years ago and also 19 years ago and even yesterday. I would like to pull out my race card at this point. It might help for me to get over on all past transgressions in not being PC. I will forever us the word 'NEGRO' instead of the 'N' word.
