John T. Banks is a frequent contributor to FaceBook on issues of crime, neighborhoods and social awareness. Banks weighed in with a letter to the Times Leaderr giving his opinion on the "N" word as well as Paula Deen. Here's his letter: 
Enough is enough! If the Food Network can fire Paula Deen's contract for using the N word it is time we support her in banning all recording artists from publishing Rap and other forms of music containing the n word. 
As a black senior citizen my generation fought too long and hard to have that word deleted from being used. Now to hear the heirs of our blood sweat tears and even death use it is outrageous. If they want to use the Constitution to defend their right then I ask it be used to defend hers.

Home Run Mr. Banks.

Consider: in a deposition given in a harassment lawsuit filed by a white ex-employee at a Deen family-owned restaurant, Deen admitted using the "n-word" in the past, during a private conversation she reported saying: "When a black man burst into the bank that I was working at and put a gun to my head I didn't feel real favorable to him." Deen says she didn't use the word during the holdup, but "probably" used it later, "in telling my husband."

Asked if she ever used the word again, Deen responded, "I'm sure I have, but it's been a very long time." When pressed to recall specific instances, Deen could not, saying: "I don't know, maybe in repeating something that was said to me. ... But that's just not a word that we use as time has gone on. Things have changed since the '60s in the South. And my children and my brother object to that word being used in any cruel or mean behavior, as well as I do."

Deen has, so far, apologized, apologized and apologized.

That the ex-employee is white, not black, and worked for her for five years did not seem to matter. Nor does it seem to matter that others have not come forward to corroborate her alleged racism.

Does she refuse to hire blacks? Has she mistreated them or paid them below the wages of white workers? And, for what it's worth, Deen supported and campaigned for President Barack Obama.

If Deen's crime is the private use of the n-word, why does the Rev. Al Sharpton, who hosts a nightly hour-long show on MSNBC, get a pass?

Sharpton, of course, rocketed to fame by falsely accusing two white men of raping and sodomizing black teenager Tawana Brawley. A New York grand jury investigation concluded that the whole case was fraudulent and that Brawley flat-out lied to avoid punishment for staying out too late. To this day, Sharpton refuses to apologize to former Assistant District Attorney Steven Pagones, one of the men Sharpton accused of rape, even after a jury found Sharpton liable for defamation.

One of Sharpton's top aides became so disgusted with the farce that he turned against his boss. Sharpton, the former aide said, could not have cared less whether Brawley was telling the truth because, according to Sharpton, "We beat this, we will be the biggest n--gers in New York."

Sharpton called the former Marine, magna cum laude graduate, lawyer, professor and then-Mayor David Dinkins -- New York City's first and only black mayor -- a "n--ger whore."

Apparently MSNBC and the Food Network see the "n" word differently.

Sharpton has called Jews "diamond merchants" and described whites moving businesses into Harlem as "interlopers." Sharpton helped incite three days of anti-Semitic rioting in Crown Heights, where two people died and over 100 were wounded. A Columbia University professor called Crown Heights "a modern-day pogrom."

Then there's Freddy's Fashion Mart. A Jewish store owner in Harlem was accused of driving a black record store subtenant out of business by raising his rent. At one of many rallies meant to scare the Jewish owner away, Sharpton said, "There is a systematic and methodical strategy to eliminate our people from doing business off 125th Street. I want to make it clear ... that we will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business." Later, one of the protestors, a black man, stormed Freddy's Fashion Mart with a pistol, screaming: "It's on now! All blacks out!" In addition to the shooting, he set fire to the building, eventually killing seven before turning the gun on himself.

If Paula Deen is out because of the "n" word, what about HBO's Bill Maher and his use of the "c" word?

Maher, on more than one occasion, publicly called former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin the "c" word. He has called her a "dumb tw-t" -- a derisive slang word for female genitalia. He has described her son Trig, who has Down syndrome, as "retarded."

But, to be fair, neither Sharpton nor Maher -- at least to our knowledge -- has called Palin the "n" word. That must explain it.

Oh yeah but if Rush calls Sandy Fluke a sl#t for claiming she can't pay for birth control to protect her from all the sex she is having - (that's another 4000 plus characters) -

What we just witnessed was intentional Judicial Misconduct, this women is old enough and seasoned as a judge to know what she was doing was improper and was intimidating Mr. Zimmerman and denying him adequate counsel. This will be grounds for having the verdict set aside on appeal, as it telegraphs to the accused that the verdict has already been rendered. My guess is that this judge has been cautioned about all aspects of the ramifications of this case if Mr. Zimmerman is acquitted.

Everybody and their dog is invested in the case including Obama who sent his DOJ down to Sanford to assist the organization of protests against Mr. Zimmerman since Sanford P.D. chose to decline prosecution. To all the race baiters and hustlers like the Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and all the other right reverends who came to pre-judge this matter and demand so-called justice for a would be gangster..

All of the national attention was intentionally done to foment race hatred to the point of the media and leftist progressives creating another hated group the awful and dreaded “White Hispanic”

All so that Obama could energize the black vote who had gotten tired of his pandering. If this was not so laughable but all to sadly true, and a conviction must be had at all cost to forestall race riots which the media will be unable to quell.

Look for some reason to declare a mis-trial or a set aside of the verdict if Mr, Zimmerman is acquitted…we shall see.
