I hate when white people use the N word. And I'm not talking about nigger, I'm talking about "The N Word." It's probably not fair that I'm actually mixed and my half white side can be racist because the other half is black. It's great in a way because you can use either race to pretty much get away with anything. But when I hear people say "The N Word" I just cringe. Because, well, because it's ridiculous. The N word doesn't change what you're saying, it's just now you're bringing more attention to how politically incorrect it is but you've also found a way to sugar coat it. I see it on the news, anchormen and women saying "The N Word". But you wouldn't hear them say "The K Word." Instead it's "anti-semitic comments were made today regarding the Jewish faith." And what the fuck is up with the whole Nigga VS Nigger debate? Like it's ok to say one but not the other? That's like a white guy getting upset because I called him a Cracker instead of a Cracka. It's the same God damn word people. White people are not responsible for what happened 100's of years before they were even born. All they're supposed to do is acknowledge it happened and work towards building a better future. It's water under the bridge man. Although I'm sure many would disagree, but I can't help it, I'm half white. So does this mean white people can say Nigger? Chris Rock would say "Not Really". He said it's ok if you're rapping along to a song full of it. Because after all, black americans have pretty much made it as common as the F word. And let's be honest, you've most likely heard it more often than any other offensive word. When you think about it, it's the only offensive word that can be used in a positive context. You can call a woman a cunt or a homosexual a faggot but that's deregoatory and offensive. You don't hear women going on about how only they can call themselves a cunt, because they don't like the word! An offensive word is supposed to be a word that a race/gender/religion is offended by and wouldn't use it in everyday life because it offends them. And yet, any other offensive word seems perfectly fine compared to the big scary N word! So take Chris Rock's advice. This isn't an open invitation for white people to be racist, it's just a way to let them know that words are just that, words. And let's be honest, when a white guy uses it we just feel awkward. But regardles, It's all about context and how the word is used. If you're someone like Kramer then you're just an asshole, but if you just want to rap along to some Dr. Dre with black people in the room, then go for it. And if they give you a hard time about it just point to some white guy and yell "Hey, look a faggot! Let's get him!"
