Who Can Use The "N" Word?

I'm sure you've heard the buzz about Gwyneth Paltrow's recent tweet.

Ms. Paltrow felt it appropriate to tweet "Ni**as in paris for real @mrteriusnash (the dream) tyty, beehigh," along with a picture of three people at a Kanye West and Jay-Z “Watch the Throne” performance.

Now, as for me, I'm offended. Others might say, what Gwyneth said in response to critics, "It's the title of a song!"

Sorry, but as far as I'm concerned, she still doesn't get to say it. I love popular culture, but this is where it gets a little "fuzzy."

Call me "old school" but the "N" word is always offensive when uttered by the "other folks."

What do you think?

Social media strikes again.
