The controversial 'Slave Earrings"??

According to numerous of blogs and news headlines "Slave Earrings" have been the subject for numerous of topics lately. Vogue Italia has named this jewlery trend after Us slavery era. Many have been affected by this including super model and mogul Iman , she says "They might as well just called them N**** Earrings". Italia vogue editor Franco Sozanni sends his apologies: We apologise for the inconvenience. It is a matter of really bad translation from Italian into English.The Italian word, which defines those kind of earrings, should instead be translated into ‘ethnical style earrings’. Again, we are sorry about this mistake which we have just amended in the website". Personally I think It can go either way bad or good. This society has made it ok for derogatory terms to be used in their every day vocabulary. This raises questions but African American Men and Women can go around and call eachother 'N*****,B******,H***.. And it be ok. But as soon as someone famous or someone in a higher position play off of our ignorance it's racist? Im not saying I agree w/ what Vogue has stated to be a "Trend" is correct however, How often do we as a people offend eachother everyday???
