Yeah but the saying "Stick and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" Is BS to me.I get offended.I got called n****rs at school used to cry and hide out in the bathroom.In high school the hispanics would call me mayates,chongas,n****r ect..I got jump by a group of mexicans during tge race riots here.I have been through alot.I am sorry if i take offense to the word n****r.

Exactly. I know my kids won't hear any words like that at our home. DH and I are VERY particular about what we say/do around our children. Too bad words like that can't just be dropped all together, then no one would have to worry about any of it.

still kind of confused why you stated that it did not matter though, when black people or rappers say it. you still haven't addressed that.

I may have worded it wrong.I was trying to say just because rappers/black people use that ugly word does not mean what paula deen said was justified.I hate that word.I should have put nobody has the right.

I'm sorry that you've gone through that. Honey I've had rocks thrown at me, been spit on, had my scarf ripped off my head and have had people try to run me over. You know I won't even leave my house on 9/11 because neo-patriots decide to get all nutso on that day? Everyone has struggles. Women, gays, Jews, blacks, Hispanics, EVERYONE. But you can't be sensitive cuz you're giving the racists what they want. Be strong in the face if racism. And I won't bother with the argument that black people use it in lyrics/comedy/movies cuz obviously they don't mean the same thing when people say it with the intention to hurt but at the same time it shouldn't have two meanings depending on who is saying it. When a black man says n***a it basically means "bro" but when a non-black says it it's hurtful?

i agree. giving in does give mean people what they want, the power to hurt you. i really do hate that there are such mean people out there these days.

There's way more awesome people than shitty people. But the masses tend to only focus on negativity.

Thank you hun.I am sorry about what happened to you.My best friend is from lebanon and she lies about her race because since 9/11 Her family was treated badly.I am getting over it little by little.I used to punch someone in the face for calling me a n****r now i just walk away.I am also married to a mexican man with two almost three biracial kids.I dont have hard feelings against a whole race because some morons out that race are racist.Other than me being jumped at 14 it's just been words.

So how come when rapper says it they make millions of dollars and when Paula Deen says it her entire empire she's been building since '89 falls apart??



If no one's going to throw a national fit about other celebrities using the word then I think no one has a right to attack her. Obviously somewhere along the line using the word n****r has become acceptable. People want equality? They want gay marriage? Women's rights? Black rights? This is no different. It can't be acceptable for only black people to say it and unacceptable for white people to say it.

I wished i had that mindset then.It also did not help that my parents did not believe me and told me to suck it up because my dad grew up in tge ghetto and did not have a chance at a good school and a nice house like my brothers and i.

I have never heard a rap song with the rapper saying n****r.Please give me an example.As someone stated "n***a" and n****r has different context.One is more like buddy,friend ect..The other has a bit of history towards it.

If I got all up in arms every time I heard someone say "k**e" here in Tx, I'd spend my whole life angry.
