Burying the n-word

N-word burial

Yeah, this should do it. Judging by the crowd at The Essence Fest in New Orleans this past weekend, ‘pimps’ and hos’ ain’t going anywhere either.

The coffin is to be placed at Detroit Memorial Park Cemetery and will have a headstone.

“Today we’re not just burying the N-word, we’re taking it out of our spirit,” said Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. “We gather burying all the things that go with the N-word. We have to bury the ‘pimps’ and the ‘hos’ that go with it.”

He continued: “Die N-word, and we don’t want to see you ’round here no more.”

With all of Detroit’s problems, you’d think the money that went towards this ceremony would be better suited going towards almost anything else.

Kwik-E-Mart

Unfortunately I don’t see any Duff…

Here is a Kwik-E-Mart set up for The Simpsons movie promotion. Opened on 07/01. It’s in Burbank, CA at the corner of Olive & Verdugo in the 91505.

update: Apparently there are only a dozen 7-11s that made the switch. The only one in Florida is in Orlando. Looks like there is also one in Seattle. Here’s video from an Orlando station.
