I was talking to my friends and one of them got mad because they were called a negrita. They were upset and offended. Which confused me. They couldn't understand why I was not offended with them.
I mean I looked just like an black person in America. I had told them I was mixed and that my grandmother would use the word often. It was used as a word of endearment.
To me the word was just like the black people around my town calling each other negers.
What do you guys think? Is the word offensive?
