@BblackkBbirdd, are you only being difficult or do you really not know what the N-word means?

You mean Negro?

This is a touchy subject. As a black man, I can't say that I'm not sometimes aggravated when I hear white people use that word, but when black people use the word so commonly (I use it sometimes), I'm not sure I have a logical basis for that anger.

If you restrict only whites, that's technically racism too.

To be honest I almost never use that word. I think it is ignorant, and when I do use it it is to prove a point. I've studied the past of that word to see how it went from a racial slur to such a popular word thrown around by the very people it was meant to hurt.

I have no idea why the black community has embraced this word, and don't care. It is oppressive and negative. I have no issue with just about any word, but I could really do without this one.

I agree TBR. I wonder why the black community has embraced this word as well, but I found this article that discusses it very riveting. http://www.tolerance.org/magazine/number-40-fall-2011/feature/straight-talk-about-n-word

@geauxpelicans5 I wrote a longish response that the filter didn't like. Let me try to boil it down a bit. Some in the gay community have embraced "fa**" . That is their business, but I don't like it much more than the black community doing the same with n----r. As a member of neither group, I have a responsibility to respond when others outside the gay or black community say these things, and when faced with the "well THEY use it, I should be able to too" I have little logical response available.

Black people don't want Whites to say it, but if they do, it's all good. Beside the fact that said word downgrades blacks, it was made OFF of them.

Negativity is a bad word.
