Sticks and Stones
Asher D with an interviewee
Is it ever okay to use the N-word?

Sticks and Stones is a sixty-minute documentary presented by So Solid Crew rapper Ashley Walters (aka Asher D). Inspired by the furore created by Ron Atkinson's comment about Chelsea captain and French international, Marcel Desailly, Ashley goes on a mission to find out why one little word - in this case 'nigger' - can cause so many problems.
