So says a body of probably all white non-native americans. Shocked. Shocked I say!

So the FCC would be fine with "N-word N-word N-word N-word N-word N-word N-word" then? Right? Because seriously, that's not sexual or excretory. Full pass!

The FCC is in DC and most of the people that work in DC either like the Ravens or the Skins. take that for what it is worth. And to be honest it is just as likely to be non-white as it is white. Not that this should really matter.

I appreciate them taking a shot at the Problem via the FCC but in reality they need to attack the problem in a way that makes the NFL lose face. Asking the FCC to ban the word is like appealing to the mean kid's Uncle to get them to stop.

Yeah. It's the FCC. They kinda suck at being the judges of what's actually appropriate for general audiences.
