The “N” word

A foreign friend used the “n” word while commenting about an employee at a hotel we were staying in. After he said it a second time, I slapped him and told him that word was never acceptable, regardless of the reason. I feel bad about hitting him, but entirely justified in motive and intent. I really can’t think of another, more effective way of registering how offended I am in a situation like this. Should I apologize? Should it be a qualified apology? I tried to explain the complex racial history of the U.S. and why the word was so hurtful, but he seemed disinclined to understand. What is the right way to react in such a situation? #LivinUnleashedTwitter: @LivinUnleashedFacebook: LivinUnleashedWebs: www.livinunleashed.comEmail: LivinUnleashed@gmail.comSoundcloud: Soundcloud.com/DaConfessions
