Stupid legislation. And i mean it. Totally ridiculous.
Here’s the link
And short explanation: New York city council banned use of the N-word. They say it ain’t good to use it in songs, stand up comedies, write it on walls, in your scrapbooks, ask whats up nigga etc etc etc.
1) USA claims itself to be the most freedom-of-speech country in the world.
2) What is even better they just banned it. Yes. That’s it. No more acts. No penalties. Nothing.
And that’s where we, polish, have something in common with them. We also like creating laws, that have no administrative acts (one of the many examples is Act of Profession of Psychologists – it just exists, but without anything that would drive it). I mean – guys – we are Tiger of Europe and stuff, but give me a break ;-).
So what is racism ? Is banning any using of anything going to help ? I don’t think so. People will just laugh. At least I will.
What does it mean ? That every country is just the same. Every bunch of idiots, that rule it, just create some irrational legislation. It doesn’t matter if you’re a continent-wide country as USA or small one like Poland :-). And that’s nice.
