When someone says the word "nigger" I immediately lose respect for them. I'm not talking about saying "what's up my nigga" or something of that nature, but the derogatory use of the word n**.
I'm white, but the use of the word has always offended me, so much so that I won't date a guy who uses it and I've gotten in arguments with family members who use it.
Other white people I know claim not to be racist but don't mind the word being thrown around. I don't get that. Its a nasty, hateful and derogatory word that was used to degrade and dehumanize black people for years in this country and there's no way to just passively accept its use.
Other white ppl: does it bother you? If so, do you say something?

It's one of the most nastiest and derogatory words in the human language. The "n word" is one word that should have been buried decades ago, but unfortunately we still have racist ignorant people who continue to resurrect it.
When I hear someone use that word they lose all respect from me.1
