Nigger Was NOT One of Carlin’s “Seven Words”

I just watched the two-part documentary on HBO Max called George Carlin’s American Dream. I was almost going to pass on the documentary. Although George Carlin’s comedy was an indelible part of my teenage and young adult years, I kind of felt like I knew everything about him anyone needed to. So I certainly didn’t need to sit through the more than three hours running time. But I thought what the heck, if I watch a few minutes and it’s boring, I can stop.

Educated, but averse to sophistry. I write about what I know, what angers me and what moves me. I ponder about race, politics, and whether true love exists.
