Michael Eric Dyson And Russell Simmons Discuss The N-Word
Harvard professor and Hip-Hop intellectual, Michael Eric Dyson, filled in for Ed Schultz on MSNBC’s The Ed Show. On the show, Dyson discussed the “N-Word” and the infamous Gwyneth Paltrow “Ni**as in Paris for real” tweet.
Dyson debated the “N-word” topic with Russell Simmons, who actually defended Gwyneth’s use of the word on his blogsite, Global Grind, earlier this month.
Simmons told Dyson:
“That reality seeps out into the communities, outside of the black community, and some people mistakenly use the word [...] I recommend anyone who doesn’t have a direct blood line to a slave not use it.”
