Using the N-word

Posted By on Tue, Dec 5, 2006 at 12:07 PM

Nigger, what a powerful word. In society, blacks use the word on a daily basis. On TV. In the movies. In music. In real life. With black role models using the word so often to sell their art forms, the word has become almost mainstream. Why is it okay for blacks to use this word freely? Let a white man utter the word just once and he is immediately labeled a racist. Who is it? What person, what governing body, made this one word off limits the majority of the population? If the word has such a negative connotation, no one should be allowed to say it. What is the comparative derogatory term for a white person? Honky? Redneck? Cracker? I want a word to be pissed off about too! Keith Hatton Groveport
