Donkey of the Week goes to Sherri Shepherd of The View. They were discussing GOP Presidential contender Rick Perry‘s ranch called “Niggerhead” when Sherri got mad at Barbara Walters for saying the name of the ranch.
I understand the terrible meaning/usage, and the sensitivity behind the word. I don’t think its right for anybody to use the n-word.
But it wasn’t like Bab’s said it referring to somebody or for no reason. She said it when they were discussing the name of the camp, which unfortunately has the word nigger in it. DOTW goes to Mrs. Shepherd for turning the conversation into something else and making herself look bad.
