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.
“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.
