Common sense rules: Black boss pays price for using N-Word at work

There are few social ills in the African American community that can’t be solved by listening to a little bit of old Public Enemy. There’s a great song on the Apocalypse 91 album called “I Don’t Wanna be Called Yo Nigga.” The song is pretty simple actually, it’s just Flava Flav (the pre – Flavor of Love version) rapping about how he and most black people don’t want to be called “Nigga” by anybody, under any circumstances.
