Re "Is Paula Deen toast in N-word controversy?" (Tribune, June 25):
Certainly the N-word is disrespectful, but what about the G-word? It is as disrespectful to those who look upon profanity as ugliness, aggressiveness and a negative message.
The most offensive profanity is the use of the name of deity that we hear everywhere as an exclamation, not adoration. Unlike the N-word, we hear it every day.
