Is anyone surprised? Bringing up something that has been brought up on this forum before; why is it okay for a black to call someone the "n" word, but not a white person to utilize that name?

“Meh.”

Whenever I hear this argument I can never tell if the person is honestly that thick or is just trying to complain that they can't use racial slurs through a passive aggressive question.

You think, surely an average adult would have a working awareness of context, weight and tone. There's no real way that a moderately educated white American can't understand why they're actively discouraged from the use of racial slurs.

But then again, it seems like more and more of my time is spent being quietly amazing at the lack of knowledge and awareness that dwells in my peers.

1. I would never use that word to describe anyone, white or black
2. I get offended when I hear that word utilized, regardless of connotation and race.
3. Your pompousness of your brilliance compared to others on this forum is nauseating. You are not all that.
4. Continuing to squelch a conversation, albeit, it may have been had before, does not allow us to move forward. Possibly with different thoughts, which leads to education. The way a sentence is worded may change the way someone responds thus leading to more discussion.
5. Not thick...get your head out of the sand and digest your surroundings

aula Deen has come under fire for allegedly using racial slurs in the past, but according to her lawyer, she’s not a racist.

“Contrary to media reports, Ms. Deen does not condone or find the use of racial epithets acceptable,” her lawyer, Bill Franklin, told ABC News in a prepared statement.“She is looking forward to her day in court.”

The celebrity chef and her brother are being sued for racial and sexual discrimination by Lisa Jackson, a former manager of their restaurant. According to The Associated Press, in a court deposition filed Monday in federal court, Jackson’s attorney asked Deen, 66, if she’d ever used the N-word. She allegedly responded,“Yes, of course.”

Deen reportedly added that she likely used the derogatory term decades ago, when a black man put a gun to her head during a bank robbery.

Aula is the pseudonym she uses when going to that famous muslim owned restaurant on the outskirts of town. All the rancid camel butter she desires whipped up by sand....you know.

Working with your claims that you're not thick and not just casting about for attention, working through this logical process should be fairly straightforward.

As we can (hopefully) assume you understand concepts like context, tone and gravity, from here we can unpack some basic ideas to navigate the question you've posed.

Try asking yourself why you find the term offensive? Why might others? How might the historical and modern uses of the term vary between different users? What other kinds of dual status words or phrases can you think of which are connected to other minority groups? Have these words or phrases evolved in ways that mirror this term? Why or why not? Why does this term remain powerful? In what ways is it powerful? How are these ways different when it is used in different contexts?

I don't really imagine that this will be difficult for you to puzzle out, but if you do need any support through the process or help finding resources, just ask!

It aggravates me when Yankees make the attempt.
And it's even worse with the gaybois' affectation and accompanying limp-wristed gesture.

Calling someone a "racist" is part of the whole White Guilt nonsense, to make those who built powerful civilizations feel guilt for the treatment of the aboriginal people who exterminate each other on a regular basis - Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, Haiti.
White Guilt arises from the concept of something called "The White Man's Burden" and term coined in 1899 as regards the obligation for White Europeans - Americans, British, Portuguese, Spain, France - to uplift all aboriginal people to the standards of European Culture regardless of the will of the aboriginal peoples themselves.
