NAACP wins on "nigger" in dictionary A Small Victory...A Giant Step (Thanks NAACP ) There has been a change in Webster's Dictionary. Kweisi Mfume, President and CEO of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), recently gave a speech at Virginia Tech.
Everyone was informed that a landmark decision was made last week with the people at Merriam-Webster Dictionary. They have recognized the error of their ways.
So, beginning with the next edition, the word nigger will no longer be
synonymous with African-Americans. It shall be duly noted that it's a
racial slur and not what African-Americans themselves are. Along with
this, all racial and religious slurs will finally be indicated for what
they really are - cruel and evil slurs too often used to degrade people.
Please pass this information on to others. This change should serve
notice to people, corporations, etc., that when individuals stick
together to right a wrong, a change is gonna come. This wasn't just a
victory for African-Americans, but for everyone.
Now if we can only get ignorant young black men to stop using it then we
will truly win.
