Nigger is a fun good word that i like it's a very good word that is fun and good and I like it it. I don't hate all black people but nigger is a fun good word to say like when you say nigger it's fun and cool and fun
It's just a word. Words change meaning depending on the context. If you're literally singing a song with the n word in it, You're not racist. If it's being said to be used in a deragatory way, Then that's terrible. If not, Then it didn't affect anyone unless they're lying.
I don't see why a race should have a hold of a word. People don't get nearly as upset over other derogatory words. You can't say it's because the n word has history, because all slurs have some history to them. Either the word is offensive and no should say it, or people stop being so hurt by it and everyone can say it. Keep in mind that the word isn't used to keep people down, because it doesn't have the capacity to. Insults only have as much power as we give them, and it is a choice to be hurt by them.
If you aren't hurting anybody, threatening anybody, then that free will to speach is the reason why we have the right to say whatever we please. We can make it a positive word about brotherhood & sisterhood or we can demonize everything, everything seems racist to you, Feck off, if any stupid feck calls me racist, I'll ignore them. We're one race, human race. If you hear stigma, speak out.
The word is something that was used as a racial slur towards blacks during the dark period of slavery and more. But now, if it is a bad word, why do black people say it? Saying that its because they have been through struggles is pointless. Why? -->
Think of the word fa**ot. Highly offensive. Gay people have faced so much discrimination. Yet, do you think its okay for a gay person to sayit either? No. Because that word is derogatory.
So if someone believes that it is a slur, NOBODY gets to say it. Or since many people say its just a friendly term nowadays, EVERYBODY should get to say it.
Whatever it may be based on, oppression or privilege or anything else, allowing only a certain race to say something is racism. And whether you like it or not, everyone, even black people, can be racist.
Any one should be able to say it. It is sole mindedly a word. A word rather used in today's society of addressing a person. Not use of a racial term. If black people use it in this way, a white man can too because they aren't putting it up for a racial term, simply just saying the word in the context of today's society.
Saying the n word is not racist. It aint like u tryna murder someone with words. If u cry because someone called u a nigga in a non-offensive way then u deserve to cry for being a sensitive bitch. Unless u took a whip to the back i dont wanna see niggas crying bout it
You simply can not say that somebody can not say a term, racist or not, due to their race. That in itself is worse racism than the term can ever succumb to being and furthermore if you are white, asian, or hispanic, there is no problem with you saying the "N" word. It's a racial barrier that's being created. I often hear people who protest with BLM, or Black Lives Matter, say that they want racism to stop, but these are the same people who say only blacks can say the N word. Those don't match up. Another argument given is that white people cannot say it because their ancestors did, which is ignorant at best, since therefore people may not speak because their ancestors did.
It's not even that you should be allowed to
It's that you shouldn't have the right to say what you want taken away from you. A big point that people in general, more specifically african americans, make is that "white people are racist," which A) In itself is racism and that "they can't use that word because their ancestors used it," which is about as retarded as saying that "Hello!" is off limits because our ancestors used to say it. You can say it if you want. There's no problem. It's not politically incorrect. Don't be dumb. Say nigga if you want.
We should all be able to say it if we are talking to anyone who is in any friend group of "gangsters"- colored or white or any race- as long as it's not an insult. 1. Because it's free speech, 2. It's not meant to hurt anyone if it's used as a friendly word, and lasty, 3. If you tell someone white not to say it, you're just a liberal hater.
So, free speech. It's free speech, and free speech is one of your First Amendment rights; if you're at all familiar with the Bill of Rights, it states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the FREEDOM OF SPEECH, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." So, now you know that not letting whites say it is violating their Amendment 1 rights. Violating rights is also against human ethics, "Nothing in this Declaration may be interpreted as implying for any State, group or person any right to engage in any activity or to perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein," quoted from the UNDHR, or Universial Declaration of Human Rights. Next, being racist. This is being racist because the 33% on here that say no, and a majority of the general public, are saying that only blacks can say this. If that's not racist, I don't know what is. It is also humanely unethical to be racist, "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood. " and "Everyone is entitled to all rights and freedoms ... Without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status," both quoted from the UNDHR. So, that's being racist for you, now, the liberal haters. You're just a liberal hater if you say that people can't use this word. You're a hater, not only to who says it, but to, essentially, every black person in the country- as it symbolizes their history, though cruel. The liberal part comes in because, in order for no one to say it, it's gonna take a lot of money to make sure no one says it, not to mention the part where they would have to remake all the dictionaries, and all that good jazz. Just, everyone should be alble to say it. GIVE THIS WORD A NEW MEANING AND SAY IT IN A FRIENDLY CONTEXT! Besides, why can girls call each other their bitches if men can't cal each other their n****s?

Go back to the history books. If black slaves did not act the way White folks wanted them to were punished, and in many cases, murdered. This word was invented by White people as a pejorative for blacks, used every time a black person was beaten, insulted, raped, lynched, whipped, and mistreated. It was a tool of oppression.
Not everything should be "in bounds" to us as white people. White women can hopefully begin to (though never fully) understand this when you think about the ways in which you are denied voice and space by dominant men.
Just because we are not welcome to use one word in the English language does not mean that we are being discriminated against.
Just because we cannot say the word, but a black man can, DOES NOT mean it's a DOUBLE STANDARD. It's something that society must expect already. It wouldn't be bad if I kissed my fiancé, but if YOU kissed my fiancé, that would be. . *That* is not a double standard. Even though I can kiss my fiancé, doesn't mean you can too.
You guys are acting like there's no history behind the word. You can't say that it's racist because it's not offensive to white folks but you guys offended and insulted others with that word. So it's not white people's who get to decide wether they can say a word with a lot of history. I mean you guys can call each other gringos or spic and claim it's friendly. We suffered and got called niggers and now we embraced it. You guys are just mad that we embraced it and you guys are forgetting that we have different skin colors so called someone a nigger in a "friendly" way is utter bullshit. It's like calling someone who's homosexual a "faggot" or "gay in a friendly way. They embraced the word and they call each other that (some of them) and you guys don't bother them. So I think black people have the choice to say it or not but if your not then keep it out of your mouth.
Just because something happened ages ago does not make anything OK. Saying the n word should not even be considered a privilege, but a restriction. It does matter if something like this happened years age, we managed to enslave a whole race, but if the tables were turned and whites were slaves there would be a big problem and controversy. Saying "cracker" is taken to offence but yet in today's age we spit on blacks and curse them out, for what? Do you curse at plants when a new species is discovered? Were all equal but yet were so far from it. In reality I believe that it should be turned and speaking as a white teen I believe whites should experience the horrors blacks went through then try to say the n word again.
Black people have been oppressed for centuries. The word Nigger has been used to do so. It is a human right for black people to be able to say it and other races not to be able to. It is not racist, if you are white you simply CAN NEVER SAY IT, AND IF YOU EVER DID IF YOU PUT ER AT THE END. THAT IS RACIST
Who paid for the word with their blood, sweat, and tears? Who suffered years of physical and mental abuse because of slavery? You see, the controversy over being able to say the N-word isn't about how it's said. It's about the history behind it. All we ask is to simply don't say it. Those who aren't black just don't understand why the word means to much to the black community. After years of racism, prejudice, and discrimination we have finally taken the word back. White people are privileged with white supremacy and the benefits in the American society. What more do they want? That word is one of the only things we finally have and they want to take that from us too? It's a shame. I don't care if you mean it in a "friendly context". It's disrespectful. It's not just your ordinary curse word. It's part of black culture and we'd like to keep it that way. "Besides, why can girls call each other their bitches if men can't call each other their n****s?" You can't compare the two different words. N**** DOESN'T MEAN A MALE FRIEND. THERE'S OBVIOUSLY A REASON WHY IT'S SO OFFENSIVE. *sigh* White people and their ignorance. When will they understand?
White people used it as a slay towards black people for hundreds of years and they still say nigger towards us now. Black people took the 'er' off of the word and put an 'a' to make an obvious distinction between the two words. We use it as a friendly term towards each other, so I feel that white people shouldn't be able to say it since they had it for hundreds of years anyways. Just my two cents.
