Banning Alien, Nigger
Florida state legislators are debating SB 2154 that would ban the use of the words “illegal alien” in all state documents. Frederica Wilson, D-Miami, says the word “alien” makes undocumented immigrants sounds more like they’re from out of space. Wilson also says that American born children of undocumented immigrants find the word embarrassing. Meanwhile, Queens, NY councilman Leroy Comrie has introduced a resolution that would ban the use of the word nigger. "It's my hope this resolution will spark a dialogue in all communities and begin to move our society, especially in our entertainment culture, toward a place where the n-word is simply unacceptable to be used in any context," Comrie said.
Aneros; The Super O
Your key to pleasure or your road to pain, the Anero MGX is a prostate stimulator developed to help heighten male orgasms. Since women seem to have the corner market on adult toys, the Anero isn’t advertised widely. It is said to be extremely comfortable – although men who are not accustomed to anal-prostate stimulation might find it rather intense. The product comes with a safety handle to help manipulate the toy once inserted and hey, maybe it’s that year you (or your man) can try something new. The Anero MGX sells for $48.00.
Ski Trip 2007
This Friday we embark on our 2007 Ski Trip Extravaganza. The theme this year is different in that rather than centering on an R&B Soul theme, it will focus on Salsa and Latino culture. I’m digging through my closet trying to find my Caribbean winter wear – oxymoron, huh? Well, we’re all excited about the planned parties, shopping sprees and yes, even attempts at skiing. I’m definitely taking my digital camera, so stay tuned for the ‘approved’ pics from our ski weekend.
Should government step in to stop the use of certain words – nigger, alien, etc. – or will society evolve to abolish these words as politically incorrect words, unacceptable in any context?
Keep passin’ the open windows…
