The NAACP Buries the Racial Slur

By: Ben Preiss - Published:   Updated: Apr 14 2011 • References:
Pulled by two Percheron horses and ensconced in a pine box adorned with a garland of flowers the N-word was laid to rest in Detroit. Will other minorities follow suit and bury racial epithets?

Implications - Hundreds of people gathered to witness this symbolic burial. Adorned with black roses and black ribbon, horses transported a pine box full of racial hatred to its final resting place. The coffin of the N-word is going to be placed in Detroit Memorial Park Cemetery and its resting place will be complete with a headstone as well. This NAACP burial is a great way to put racism to rest once and for all and provides a sense of closure after a long history of discrimination.
