I was invited to be on the Jamie Foxx show with Zo Williams on The Voice of Reason ,and had a blast. What a great group of people--------I am still floating today.
I learned so much from Zo and his other guests who had also written books. One title by Firpo Carr, Wicked Words: Poisoned Minds--Racism in the Dictionary.(1997). It's a relevent today as it was then. This is the link--------he is powerful--his words are powerful. http://www.firpocarr.com/
The second book entitled "The N Word " by Jabari Asim , another of the guests on the show, gave insight into racial slurs and their origins and the harm done. Below is the link to his book and his thoughts.
