One thing I've wondered for the longest time is why the formerly oppressed will often use it in place of such boring, normal words as "and," "or," or most other conjunctions; but when a white dude uses it in the same manner (maybe using it in quotation or in reference to a song that's playing), the person is then considered the social pariah of the surrounding area. White girls can obviously get away with more since they are card carrying members of the estrogen club. Some consider it "backwards" for white guys to use it these days - so, follow me here, maybe if white guys said a reversed version, it would then be socially acceptable. Instead of droppin "nigga," we could drop "aggin" or even go the Leprechaun: In Da Hood route and use ninja (unless the word is so widely used by black people now that it is considered a new racist slur*). By reversing the polarity of the offending letters, I think I have achieved a stable, non-racist word. So for all of the white guys here, you must either cite using MLA citation if you use the original source (nigga) or cite my patent (aggin, U.S. Patent 8,493,290, filed August 24, 2005, and issued April 8, 2010 - I know, it JUST came through). If you use "aggin" otherwise, then a homing dildo will come and rape your entire family, followed by a visit from your local Minotaur sect to collect debt owed to my company, Slurning Experiences, Ltd. *If you're taking this, or anything else in this post seriously, please invest in a woodchipper to throw yourself into for being such a fucking retard.
