Have to disagree. That word is loaded with centuries of hatred. The way blacks use it is completely different. It should be avoided by any non-black person with a shred of humanity.
Oh, please, don’t try to sell that stuff to me. The way blacks use it is “different”, LOL? It’s the same WORD. You might be willing to fall in line with politically correct demands of overlooking black behavior while condemning the same from whites, but I reject double standards.
A “shred of humanity”.....please, spare me the dramatics. Besides, if the n-word is so loaded with hatred, shouldn’t you be rushing off to the black community to preach to THEM about using it?
Like "cracker, whitey, or honky"?
Most Caucasians I know have been civil for decades. I don't see anyone else coming around on that point.
Not, mind you, that I will be less civil, but enough of giving one group a pass and holding the bar higher for another.
Double standards do nothing but cause enmity in the future--one of the reasons relations are deteriorating instead of improving.
