This is what erks me; black people degrade themselves everyday in songs, movies, or in person calling each other the "n" word, calling their enemies ' or even calling other races that word'. Yet, black people say thatt other races cannot use the "n" word due to racism.i understand the background of the word and it's origin. So isn't tgat enough for blacks to realize? You are litefally degrading yourselves and carrying on it's past origin everytime you call each other that word. It has no ownership properties tied to the black race, black people shouldn't say it anymore than other races should. I'm not taking Paula's side here but if blacks wants other races to not use the "n" word then they need to quit showing us that word is okay by calling themselves that.

I'm biracial, very light-skinned, & most people can't even tell by looking at me. But I will claim my African roots before I claim white blood. I guess we figure, hey, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. It's sad, but white people will never see us as normal people, we are "black people"; so in your minds, we're different, & many of you go out of your way to treat us that way. When really, the only thing different about us is our skin tone. When we started using the N word, it was to show whites that we embrace whatever hatred you have for us, because we don't need your support to be who we are. We didn't even come up with the words "cracker" or "honky" until we got tired of taking your sh#it.

And that train of thought is why things are the way they are. "Whites will only ever see us as blacks"... You just completed your own circle of racism... And by the way alot of "blacks" do need the "whites" support to be "who you are". It's called welfare...

Okay, Emerald. Who sees you that way? Is this just from experience or from how you was raised? Honestly feel blacks use that as a pity party approach. You, our generation is not treated differently. Our president is black, the richest woman in the world, Oprah is black, Tyler Perry, etc... Rhis is not the 1800's, the black community does not suffer. Last time I checked white people are not eligible for a scholarship based on color as african-americans are. White people do not have a television network called WET but there is a BET. Why? Because the black community would sue the station for racism. How is that fair? It's not!
You also claim racism in my first post for calling you black, yet you call me white and that's different? I don't get offended. I am white, it's my origin, I embrance my color. It's not racism we are a color, I could however say,"how racist of you I am Caucasian!"
Why choose your black inheritance over your white? To fit in? Be different? So you can bi**h about something?
I freel white people are now the victims. Myself from being called white girl, honkey, etc...
7The white community in todays world did not punish blacks, we did not own slaves

Jealous of what? Being 400 pounds and looking like a giant? Having 3 kids out of wedlock? Having a man that cheats all the time? Having a man that won't marry you? Having a man that won't even live with you? Yes. You have me figured out. I'm jealous of all that. SMMFH

I wonder how many of the sponsors, food network executives have ever said the "N" word? Hmmm??Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Paula Deen grew up in Southern Georgia in the 50's and 60's. So does it shock me that at some point in her life she said that word? Well NO it doesn't. Many people grew up with parents that used the word , like me, but when I became an adult I knew it was wrong and never say it, ever! Have I in my life? Yes, when I was young and stupid. She was being honest and it is disgusting how she has been pounced on. Goodbye America, it was nice knowing you!

This is so stupid. My daughter is biracial as well & no one has ever called her black. You choose to be referred to as black to "fit in" and be able to behave in that manner, such as using the N word. I'm white & I have always told her that the first time that word ever came out of her mouth it would be the last. Just trashy.

I do not use the N word, I was simply offering up a reason as to why blacks defend their right to. I also don't claim to be 100% African American. I'm biracial & proud. But, like I said, I just don't see the pride in being white. History tells us that whites are treacherous, selfish, dishonest, ornery, lazy, and arrogant. If you don't allow your daughter to interact & learn about the black culture, being as that's half of who she is, then you are foolish.
