Then N Word meets its untimely demise

As a symbol, the NAACP's ritual burial of the "N Word" on July 9, 2007, and by proxy, its children, pimp,ho, etc. generated an effective media moment, but will it be able to inspire the social change sought by its performance? I doubt it. Those who would have most benefited from the message, the very young, the ignorant, the financially and socially impoverished, were not in attendance. This event was held at the NAACP's national convention. Essentially, they were talking to themselves. Photo: Carlos Osorio Associated Press
