Nobody asked but …
I don’t like Papa John’s pizza. And I don’t like the University of Louisville Cardinals (I’m hoping to drift back inside the pale now that Chris Mack is there). So don’t come here looking for objectivity.
But objectively, I wonder why a guy who is a CEO and Chair of the Board, a guy who made his company famous by affilating with sports franchises, would use the n-word, even for informational purposes, even to make a point.
We cannot escape it. This country tolerated legal slaveholding for nearly a century, and cockeyed civil rights for more than another century, and stupid prejudices still for 6 more decades.
The n-word, and racial memes, persist because people insist on continuing their use. Why?
