8. What if I said this?
I just watched That Nigger's Crazy. Richard Pryor was a comic genius and he'll be missed.

I used the word but not as an epitaph.

If the word was in Webb's book (a great novel about the Vietnam War that I read years ago) then it was not used as a racial epitaph. It's a good thing that Webb brought up the fact that it's in the book because if he said "I've never used the word," then Felix can turn around and say "but you used it right here on page 250!"
