The N Word [Trio Films]

The "N" word is considered to be a touchy subject - particularly among black Americans - even today. Used in the derogatory sense to refer to black people, as well in eye dialect as "nigga" (an informal slang term), there is cause for debate whether its common use in the modern day is right or wrong.
