I've seen the use of the word n*igga (er) far too often on GaG and I think it's about time the people who use get a written warning... it's pretty vulgar language just like "c*nt" ... and extremely racist regardless of who uses it.
I do not like that word. It reminds me of slavery and all the people getting beaten it bothers me so much. They would call the slaves by that word. So yes I take great offence to those words considering I am mixed.
Yes. Those words annoy me. So I ignore people who say them.
I personally don't really care about the language people use because a lot of people don't mean it in a derogatory manner... It's just a part of the culture now... Maybe a compromise would be made like a profanity filter placed on the site which users could toggle on or off...
We allow GAGers the freedom to say what they want, mostly. We allow people to cuss and use some words some may not like, but we don't allow people to throw them AT each other, so please report those when you see them.
The n-word is actually starred when used and is very rarely seen here on GAG.
Never saw the N-word used on here. In general I am not into cursing. One thing that interests me is that African-Americans use the N between each other so freely and openly and take zero offense. But when used by others they take it as an attack. The word should just be disliked by everyone.
I think since its the n word said in slang, people think that its harmless. But its still offensive to most African-American culture. Its still the word and when black people know where the mening came from, its probably very annoying and hurtful toward them.
Personally, I think words only have the power that you give them. I someone called me a cunt or a cracker or an albino or anything like that I don't think I'd give a shit. People say stupid crap on the internet
