    I don't use the word mostly because it's not necessary and there's a big chance you're gonna offend someone so it's easier to just rip it out of your vocab.. but I personally think telling someone they can't use a certain word due to the color of their skin is more racist than the white person saying it.

    Let's be real, most people these days have never owned a slave; and I can't speak for others, but I've never wanted to.



    This may have been originally fashioned specifically for African Americans, but it would be hypocritical to say we can judge one race by the color of their skin and not the other.. so I think it's particularly relevant to this subject.

    I personally think anyone who uses the word shouldn't have the right to get mad at another doing the same; regardless of skin color, as that's exactly what they're fighting for, right? Equality.


    What kind of equality allows one set of people to do something, and not another?


    SIDENOTE: I find it very awkward and uncomfortable when a white person says it, so I'm moreso suggesting the death of the word completely.. but if the black community keeps it alive, I think it's unfair to expect others not to be affected by it.

    I don't think people of any color should use it, because it's a hate-filled word.

    I agree to an extent, and it's no surprise that this word has been adopted by some people of color. But I think it's sad that it's used as a pejorative among the people whom it was originally intended to subjugate.

    No they don't... It's usually the exact opposite.

    in short, no white people should not use that word even tho all of them have said it at least once in their lives.

    real talk tho I never understood why most white people feel the need to say it. It's even worse when you come across those white people who try to argue why they should be allowed to say it

    Like someone else said, if you a grown man say what you want. Just be prepared to handle the consequences..

    Me personally.. Growing up in the places I did/having alot of black friends/living the same life they did every day.. When you around black people referring to you as nigga all day, you pick it up eventually.. Never had anyone I knew take offense, I guess because they watched me grow up in the same struggle they did..

    I have been "checked" for it twice.. Once at a job I had back when I was 16, by some 30+ year old guy that obviously grew up with that word having alot more power than it did in my generation.. The other time we was in a club about 15 deep.. Shit was like a skit off a comedy or something. Group of 3 black guys hear white boy say nigga as they pass by, get offended & talk shit, then get stomped out by that white boys black friends before the white boy even had a chance to speak.. lol
