I believe if you are not African American you shouldn't be able to say it. You simply haven't earned the right to say that word. Two blacks people can use the word with love but others can use the word with hate. How would some one feel if i said" look at all those redneck crackers". They would probably feel the same as if i was called a racist name. I believe that since the ongoing problem hasn't truly been solved there has been almost no progress, like blacks and the white police officers.....

Thank you Con for instigating this debate.

First, Con should uphold the BoP. Con must show us that using the N word is beneficial for African Americans to say to one another. Con must then show us why Causation people should not use the "N" word.

Easy to say when you're white Deathbydefault. Way to appropriate.

This debate is hilarious.

"Nigger" is a word that used to be a neutral term for black people and eventually developed into a racial slur. Now it's slang within black communities, which, considering the word's meaning as a slur, is pretty funny.

You probably shouldn't say it to black people if you're white, but otherwise it's just a freaking work. Don't take it so seriously, call me a cracker and a backwoods incestuous hillbilly all you want. I think it's funny.

My real viewpoint: Use as slang = okay. Use as insult = not okay.

Racial slurs are funny.

Honestly, racial words shouldn't be used in everyday talk, but seeing from how straight forward pro is on round one, pro might win.

Lol.

Just use the word nigger in the debate. It makes the debate more interesting.
Trust me, if the front page was fixed, this debate will make it there.
