Rush Limbaugh Exclaims Rachel Jeantel Gave Him Permission To Use Ni**a
Rush Limbaugh crowed on Tuesday that, after hearing an interview with Trayvon Martin’s friend Rachel Jeantel, he was now allowed to use the word “n—a.” He then used the word.
Jeantel, who was on the phone with Martin just before he was killed by George Zimmerman, told Piers Morgan that she thought “n—a” was a non-racist term that could be applied to any man, whereas “n—-r” was. This view is, to say the least, not universally shared, but Limbaugh happily dove in.
“So, n—a with an a on the end,” he said, before adding, “I think I can now. Isn’t that the point? Because it’s not racist! I could be talking about a male.”
