If anyone is watching the Early Show right now, discussing the Jesse Jackson drama over the use of "The N Word", you probably caught that they beeped out "Nuts" when he said "I want to cut his nuts off", but not to soon after, you hear him say at a press conference "I am very against this word, 'nigga'.", with no beeps at all.

Is the racial slur now less offensive than a slang word for testicles now?!!?

Discuss.

EDIT- Oh, and anything offensive or racist will be reported, theres no need for that kind of crap in something that can be discussed in a respectable and mature manner.

i'm sure most of you will agree that "nuts" is a little more offensive then ******

Which is the exact point Im making here. We [Well, I did...] just heard 'nuts' bleeped out, but the N word was just said on national television?

Im hoping lots of controversy ensues from this.

It's a situational thing... it would normally but if you bleep it out in that situation then you might as well not show the interview at all seeing as that is the entire point of it.

You're also a backwater hick with a distorted and narrow-minded view of the world, so shut up and go back to drinking in front of the tv.

No, Im not black. Im complaining about how CBS just wasted 10 minutes of my life about a stupid remark about nuts, when they go ahead and splatter the N word on TV.

See though, the N word thing was 2 years ago , so it doesn't add up.

And you don't have a narrow minded view? Someone just said they were racist (and were probably joking) and because you are 'narrow-minded' you stereotyped him into an alcoholic hick.

What I don't understand is that black people can say that word with no fear at all, but as soon as someone who isn't black says it, it sparks furore.

He's just saying "nuts" is used alot and people never really give a damn. But if I came on the TV (being white) and said ****** I'm sure there'd be alot of angry black people on my phone as it's considered a swear word (I guess)

TS, I don't know why they chose to bleep out nuts but they probably didn't bleep out ****** because it wasn't being used towards anyone and Jesse Jackson is black. Black people are allowed to offend their own race.

Yes, actually I am.

JSBud- True, but regardless of whether he is white or black, it should have been bleeped out.

Damn, I love America.
