Kinder Words 


I read the letter from Mr. Cortez, ("Mailbox," Jan. 9) and while I respect his right to express his feelings, I feel compelled to explain that not all black people use the N word. Mr. Cortez, have you met someone from another country? Be assured that this word is not universal. And as for those rappers who use it, there is and has been a movement to get them to not use the N, B or any lyrics that demean. This has been going on for a long time. I have never subscribed to the term PC. I do, however, feel that it is way past time for some common courtesy.
