Lingo Episode #8: The N Word

Lingo is a show that’s about our relationship with language, how it goes beyond communication, and the impact it has on our lives, cultures, and traditions. It's in movies, rap, standup comedy...but the word, in some contexts, could be the most offensive word in English. This week, we explore the n-word: its history, its present context in America, and if it should be used at all.
