Must not Use the N-word Even in a Joke

Unless you are black, of course. Then you can use it all the time:

"Andy Dick is apologizing for using the same racial slur that got ex-"Seinfeld" star Michael Richards in trouble last month.

Dick, a former co-star of the 1990s sitcom "NewsRadio," jumped on stage during a routine by Ian Bagg at L.A.'s Improv on Saturday night and used the n-word in an apparent attempt to joke about Richards, the celebrity Web site reported Tuesday....

According to TMZ, Dick had been heckling comedian Bagg from the audience and then joined him onstage, when the two discussed Richards. When Dick exited the stage, he suddenly grabbed the microphone and shouted at the crowd, "You're all a bunch of...'" - using the n-word.


It sounds like Andy might have had a bit too much of the singing syrup. A British TV personality, Bruce Jones, seems to have had similar problems with the singing syrup recently. There is a picture of the happy Mr Jones here.
