I don't know him at all.We disagree on the complexity. I don’t think I need access to the word (along with plenty of others) period so I find it relatively simple.
I also think Flom is sincerely apologetic. Maybe you know him better than me though.
You think there are other words that are more complex than the n-word on when and who can use it under what circumstances? I really don't think you do.
Do you think Leonardo DiCaprio should have to apologize for using it in Django?
Do you think the coach at Eden Prairie should have to apologize?
Do you think an African American rapper should have to apologize for using it?
Now, I'm not disagreeing with however you come down on these questions, I'm just saying that it's a nuanced rationale. The most nuanced analysis has to be given to this word than any other word in the English language.
