Amidst the fallout of the Michael Richards incident, a group of activists are calling for a boycott of the "n-word." Lead by Reverend Jesse Jackson, Rep. Maxine Waters, comedian Paul Mooney, and rapper Paul Wall and other African-American leaders, the group gathered in Los Angeles on Monday (Nov. 27) and voiced support for an upcoming NAACP campaign to "just say 'no' to the n-word."
Paul Wall? Isn’t he white? C’mon, he shouldn’t be using the damn word anyways!
Mooney has even vowed to never use the word again during his routine…and he loves that word! "I've used it and abused it, and I never thought I'd say this," Mooney said. "Richards is my Dr. Phil — he's cured me."
Hilariously, Queens rapper Noreaga, who is black and Puerto Rican, is opposed to the NAACP ads.
"Man, Seinfeld was my show and Kramer, he was my favorite character," Noreaga said. "But f**k him. Why run to his aid? There are neighborhoods in the U.S. and in Puerto Rico that look like Third World countries. I definitely don't plan to change my vocabulary or speech pattern because of this incident. You never hear from these leaders until something controversial happens."
