The N-word and nursery rhymes

I am still busy trying to finish my degree, and currently nursing a cold, but here’s a piece I wrote for Independent Voices: “Yes, call out Clarkson for using the n-word, but it’s pointless stopping there” .

I must admit, Below The Line is a bruising place. I have to consciously steel myself, see if I have the emotional energy to take it on. This article has the most comments of any piece I’ve ever written. And as you will see, that’s not necessarily a good thing (!)
