"View" Co-Host Debate Who Can Use The N-Word

If you are unfamilure with the underling storing read this and this. I think the story makes for some splashy headlines, but there is not any substance to it with even Perry's (R) Democratic opponents coming to his defense.

As for the question of if there are certain words that only one race can use, I think that is the very essence of racism. This is America and you can say what you want to. That said, there are certain things that you should not say. Dropping an 'N-bomb' is pretty high up on the list of things you should not say. That should not change based on the color of your skin.

Video embedded below.

"Host Barbara Walters used the n-word while explaining the story, causing co-host Sherri Shepherd to take offense. Shepherd says she didn't like the way Barbara Walters said it. However, Shepherd was okay with Whoopi Goldberg, the main host of "The View," using it. Shepherd explained herself:

"When I heard you (Whoopi) say it, it was fine. You said it a different way. When I heard you (Barbara) say it, I didn't like the way you said it. Because when you say it, you say [inaudible]. And I don't like [inaudible]," Shepherd said.

This left Barbara Walters confused and wanted to know the proper way to say the n-word. However, Shepherd told Walters there is no right way for her to say it.
