Jerry.k’s Facebook update:
Show me the Money broadcasted two instances of the N-word in last week’s highlighted scenes. Let me ask you. Do you not know what that means, or are you doing it on purpose?
While the producers stay silent, Jerry.k speaks up. In no way, was what the Show me the Money production team did excusable. I’m relieved to see that Jerry.k shares that thought. What’s so sickening is some of the comments: ‘It’s a black-only word, and you’re not black so why do you care?’, ‘other black people use it, it’s not offensive’, etc… It’s so frustrating to see this kind of mindset spread. It hardens if not perpetuates the ever persistent racism and hate towards another group of people. I haven’t given up all hope, as I see those that share my thoughts, but I desperately hope that everybody accepts all people as equals. Why is this not a given by now?
