Seems that reversed racism isn't a shame or a crime. On any given day there is more of that kind of disgusting display, but obviously it doesn't seem to be newsworthy. Selective reporting is right up there with subliminal suggestion.

Yes you are right. But you shouldn't stereotype people because of what you hear in music. If you want to call it music. The word is being used as a mockery
towards whites. And I guess if your race was called that for many years then you might do the same.What comes around goes around. Blame our ancestors for that.But every one should grow up and forget the Bad Past. Those times should be over with. Its time to move on now.

I am not exactly sure how Bob is completely right? People fought for equal rights and for the N word to not be acceptable. So even if you hear that word all your life and you relate that word to negative meanings (which the meaning is negative) why would you then want to call other people like you that? Time to move on yes I agree. Look through history and almost EVERY civilization that was in power owned slaves, a thing of the past that needs to be put in the past. Unfortunately, it will never be because it is easier to cry racism and that it was because I am black I am oppressed; then to really look at one self and see where the fault may lie. Is it right to write hateful things, of course not, but if one race is going to say hateful things to another, then it should be acceptable vice versa. blacks do it to whites, whites do it to blacks, and so on. This is our country, if you do not like it, change it.

abc, you have a very valid point. When I said I agree, I just meant that it is true that you do hear that word used in music etc.Not saying that is right but just that it is used in music and in my opinion it shoudl not be used by anyone at all. And you are right....there is racisim on both sides which people should just get over things and move on now. And I know what point you are trying to make in that "it is easier to cry racism and that it was b/c i am black and I am opressed." You are right that is used as an excuse rather than looking at where the fault may lie.:)
