Nigger/'N' Word Controversy[edit]

Is it Wikipedia policy to censor words? It is a pedestal of facts, not political correctness, last I checked. I'm replacing "'N' Word" with "nigger" and linking to the "nigger" article, considering they are considering banning the word "nigger." That needs to be mentioned, and it is being used in a non-racial way, so I see no problem with it. --Captain Cornflake 02:38, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

It was removed the first time because no source was provided that would allow anyone to verify the claim. The next question is, does what you put in the article match what the source says? It really does not. The article gives examples of similar efforts in other locations. The third question is whether it is notable enough for this article. I doubt that it is. 100's of news items happen every day, and Wikipedia is not a news service. Johntex\talk 02:57, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
Hey, I didn't add the news bit in the first place. I was just cleaning what somebody else added. --Captain Cornflake 01:47, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
I was just explaining the removal of this trivia from the article. If we do ultimately decide to include this tidbit, it actually should say "the N word" because that is what the source said. The source never says "nigger". So, the anon that added the info was right to use the phrase as used by the article. I maintain that it is a trivial item that is not on a par for inclusion into this article, as I explain above. Johntex\talk 16:34, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
