You’d think a man who has been called the “n” word via social media, as well as being called a thug – which he said himself was just another way of calling him the “n” word, would be on-board with the NFL banning the “n” word.

Think again.

In an interview with themmqb.com, Seahawks cornerback  Richard Sherman voiced his displeasure with the NFL and their attempt on trying to ban the n-word.

“It’s an atrocious idea,” Sherman told themmqb.com. “It’s almost racist, to me. Why wouldn’t all curse words be banned then?”

Sherman added that using the n-word ending in “-er” is racist, but using it with an “-a” ending is not, when used among African-American players. He also stated that it’s common to hear the word used on the field.

That is, until someone like Richie Incognito uses it, right?
The NFL competition committee’s plan is to penalize players 15 yards for using racial slurs. Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome, who serves on the committee, told ESPN.com that homophobic slurs are also under consideration.
The issues will be addressed at the owners’ meetings, March 23-26 in Orlando, Fla.

    @bk chick That’s a good point. I’ve heard stories about the racist things white players say on the field. Its crazy to me that players would be ok with that going unpunished just so that they can use the word themselves. Is it really that hard to not say it while on the field? Most people can’t go around calling people ni**as at work…its really not that unreasonable of request
