      Alphonso Henley

In the Merriam-Webster dictionary the definition of the word "Nigger" reads: Usually offensive; a black person, a member of any dark skinned race. A member of any disadvantaged class of persons. All non-white skinned people are not offensive! All non-white people are not disadvantaged. It is offensive to ME an African American male to have my child look up the word "Nigger" and to begin to cry! What has been printed in Merriam-Webster needs to be changed to what it previously read. It referred to Ignorance not color. It is Ignorant to hate another human being just because of their skin color! I am offended,
