The only episode of Boston Public I ever saw, was Chapter 37, which dealt with the “N”-word. Couldn’t find a single clip on YouTube, but that episode should have made me a regular watcher (it didn’t, although Jeri Ryan is certainly eye-catching). It really was a good episode.
I’d offer my thoughts, but right now I’m just too exhausted; still wanted to blog the following segments from The View, though:

By the way, this isn’t the first time The View covered the topic of the N-word:
Interesting to listen to how they talked about the topic back then (aired Feb 22, 2008). The gaggle of voices at the end is just frakkin’ annoying. But, hey…what could I expect? It’s The View!
A former fetus, the “wordsmith from nantucket” was born in Phoenix, Arizona in 1968. Adopted at birth, wordsmith grew up a military brat. He achieved his B.A. in English from the University of California, Los Angeles (graduating in the top 97% of his class), where he also competed rings for the UCLA mens gymnastics team. The events of 9/11 woke him from his political slumber and malaise. Currently a personal trainer and gymnastics coach.
The wordsmith has never been to Nantucket.
