Dr. Maya Angelou sat down with TheGrio website to discuss her upmcoming specials on BET. During the interview, the controversy surrounding her disappointed in rapper's Common use of the N-word in a song they collaborated on came up. It was during this discussion that Dr. Angelou dropped a powerful nugget of wisdom.

I know people say, 'I can use it [the N-word] because I don't mean any harm,' but the truth is, if you have poison and you bought it in a vile from the pharmacy and it has a little picture on it of skull and bones, you can take that content and pour it into Bavarian crystal, but it's still poison, it doesn't matter where it comes from.
