I've heard this said a lot and I call bull on that. Now I do realize at times the n-word gets used in the same type of way someone might say 'dude' or a word starting b that rhymes with witch... but that's definitely not the only way the n-word is used in among black people. The N-word is also used as a "put-down" by one black person towards another black person. The meaning in the put-down being someone who ignorant/acts without class/etc...

I think Cooper deserves a suspension and honestly I wouldn't have any problem if he had been released when it happened. Doing it now looks weak IMO, but Cooper should know what he can and can not say... However, I also have no idea what context Cooper has heard in locker rooms from fellow teammates who are black when they used the n-word among themselves.
