What if We All Became Niggers?

What if everyone were to call everyone else, "nigger"?

Would that fix it? [Flash]   Would that make it alright?

Could we somehow pile enough usage onto history to raise us up beyond this point?

What if we could put all the colors into the word?

Or, what if we could take all the color out of the word?

Rather than avoiding the word, referring to it by its first character, what if we were to beat the shit out of it and put it to rest?

You know how when you repeat a word over and over and over and over it loses meaning?   Could we do that as a society?   Or should we just bury [mp3] it?

Just so there's no doubt here, La Vida Vegas believes, racism is stupid!

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

Dedicated to the other side of Las Vegas, namely; the sprawling, mad, incoherent underpinnings of the world's favorite destination.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
