Interesting perspective, thank you :)
Exactly! But I only use the N word when I am quoting what someone said. I always hesitate when I try to say it.
I stopped using it a few years back. It just never felt right.
Don’t ever change! You rock!

You never answered my question... lol
By answering those, you'll get your answer. You want to say a word an entire demographic is uncomfortable with you saying... so why is it you want to say it? Are you that entitled? Are you that pathetic you can't be an adult and control your urges? You can't respect people?Tell me what mental issues you have so i can understand your inability to respect people's comfortability levels.
Wow someone is condescending and aggressive.
@ATLAS-1 How is it condescending? I refrain from using "fa***t" because it makes LGBT people uncomfortable even though they say it. I refrain from using "cracker" bc white people throw a fit. Same with "retarded". If you have.2 IQ you can manage to respect another demographics wishes. Am i wrong? No.
Obviously this question triggered you. I don’t want your opinion.
Right well it was clear you already made up your mind. those were rhetorical questions and now it's obvious they were leading questions. Don't even bother with this one @Asker. Just a troll.
Because i asked you to think about "why" you want to say it, you get mad? No wonder lmao
@ATLAS-1 My initial questions were not rhetorical. I tried to open the convo, but she shut it down.I think it's stupid whites can't control their mouths and when they ask why they can't say a slur, and a person answer with offense, it's suddenly "OMGGGG SO TRIGGERED".No shit? You want to use a slur. You want me to kiss your ass? fomf.
I'm not mad I just know when someone engages in fallacies, they aren't serious thinkers or interested in discourse. And yet you present yourself like one it's a bizarre contradiction. I want to give you credit and believe you knew what you were doing because the alternative is you lack self awareness and that's just bleak.
@ATLAS-1 It's not a fallacy. My reply wasn't an argument. I was ready to go into the origin and history of negus and niger with her if she had answered. That's it.If some says: "Why can't i call a bunch of gay people fa**ots to their face?"Most likely someone will say: "Why do you want to say that? Do you know the origin? Because it's a dick move."
@ATLAS-1 Yet, a bunch of people not wanting to be called a slur is sensitive, and it's racist to be offended and not want people to say it (the words of another reply).
We get offended when a white person say it because it is not a word the white can just say. I don't think it's racist for us to get all angry and start to actually beat up the white person. If I hear a white person say that word, I will act like I never heard the person say that word, including I will just avoid that person until I die.I've had a white girlfriend who asked me permission to say that word because we were the only two in my room. She was also quoting from what someone said. I let her say the N word, but it was just a one time thing.
@Youryeodongsaeng exactly what I’m talking about. If you can, why can’t we?
Also, us blacks don't see the phrase "actions are stronger than words" whenever it comes to a white person saying the N word.
@Youryeodongsaeng lol just give me the damn actual reason why it’s bad for white people to use it. Because I can’t see the reason.
I have no idea why, I'm just one person who is uncomfortable with the word. But it probably has to do with Slavery and those white people called us the N word.
@Youryeodongsaeng okay. But there is no more slavery. It’s 21st century. It’s just a word that is used in songs even. I’m gonna sing a song and there will be n word. So what you gonna do? Beat me? Lol
I was talking about when slavery started.And no. You are safe to sing songs with the N word in it, as long as there aren't any blacks around. I don't fight. I ignore and pretend you never existed.
@Youryeodongsaeng if they don’t like the word, it’s their problem. I’m gonna sing whatever I like and I don’t care what people are around me
N word goes for both variations. Why do you think the terms "hard R" and "soft A" started to be used?
Yeah that sucks huh
