One step forward, two steps back

If this story is true, it doesn’t look too good.

You’d have thought, with all the technology people carry with them these days, and all the technology people nearby have, that people would think before they open their mouths.

I mix with a lot of young black men in a social setting, they are part of a club that I help with. Some of them call each other ‘nigga’ quite often, they refer to each other as such on FB, which kind of puts out a mixed message which I’m not down enough with the kids to extricate. I  don’t think because they use the word, that anyone not within that group can use it. I have no desire to use the word, much like I never use the ‘C’ word either, whether I understand the social moires of is street-culture banter, or not.

I guess anyone who does, and gets recorded doing it, is setting themselves up for a fall, big style.
