Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh announced today on his show that he can now use the word "n*gga" because Zimmerman trial witness Rachel Jeantel explained the difference between "n*gga" and "n*gger" on CNN last night.
Jeantel told CNN's host Piers Morgan that "n*gga" could mean any male, while "n*gger" was a racist word.
Limbaugh took this as a green light that applied to him personally, notes Mediaite.com (audio below).
“So, ‘n*gga’ with an ‘a’ on the end. I think can [say it] now, isn’t that the point? Because it’s not racist. That's the point. I could be talking about a male–a Chinese male, guy at the laundromat. I could be talking about a man, that’s what she said it means,” said Limbaugh.
