Texas Mayor Singles Out N-Word for Ban

Mayor Ken Corley: “But it is a national issue, and I would like the city of Brazoria to take a leadership role throughout the nation in banning the use of this word.”

I covered the city of Brazoria as a young reporter at The Brazosport Facts, and much of my family comes from the area. I still can say that the city has not taken “a leadership role throughout the nation” on anything. Banning words is probably not the best place to start.
