  1. Thank you for introducing me to the Nigga Theory: Contingency, Irony, and Solidarity in the Substantive Criminal Law, by Jody Armour. 2UrbanGirls are to be commended for pointing out this very good chronicle on the N—– word and its various impacts on our society.
    This presentation is philosophically and legally insightful, and as the dialogue continues caution is advised with over using ‘black’ as an adjective. Too often we loosely interchange black when saying things like black wrongdoers, black criminals, when in actuality they are wrongdoers and criminals, respectively. A black politician, black lawyer, black doctor, black entertainer, black athlete, etc. are considered highly respectable as professionals, and rarely is there a need to impose a leading descriptive qualifying adjective, black, which is presumably used to strengthen or weaken their functionality.
    Thank you 2UrbanGirls for working to help empower community awareness.
