World News: NAACP wins on removing the ''N'' word from the dictionary Black Habits Articles A Small Victory...A Giant Step (Thanks NAACP)!! There has been a change in Webster's Dictionary. Kweisi Mfume, President and CEO of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) recently gave a speech at Virginia Tech.

Everyone was informed that a landmark decision was made last week with the people at Merriam-Webster Dictionary. They have recognized the error of their ways.

So, beginning with the next edition, the word nigger will no longer be synonymous with African-Americans. It shall be duly noted that it's a racial slur and not what African-Americans themselves are. Along with this, all racia l and religious slurs will finally be indicated for what they really are - cruel and evil slurs too often used to degrade people.

Please share this information with others!!

This change should serve notice to people, corporations, etc., that when individuals stick together to right a wrong, a change is gonna come. This wasn't just a victory for African-Americans, but for everyone.

Now if we can only get some of our young black men/women to stop using it so freely...then we will truly win. Pass it along so we make sure that we all know the deal.
