Nigger

29 08 2008

This is the final post, and we all knew this was coming…

Nigger. The word is foul. It is at the very tip top of a tall pyramid of racial slurs used for black people – the people for whom more flagrant racial slurs exist than any other race.

Figure 1: The Big Damn Pyramid of Black Lexical Hate

Notwithstanding the atrociousness of the word itself, ‘Nigger’ has had a very interesting history. It naturally started out as a dismissive term used by whites to describe blacks, and it didn’t even necessarily have racist connotations. It remained in this form until the 19th century, when the term slowly transformed from racial to racist. The racist connotation of ‘nigger’ came to a head during the Civil Rights movement, by whose time the word had gone well beyond descriptive and dismissive, becoming instead an angry and proactive way to harshly degrade blacks (in parallel with the term ‘boy’ applied to grown fucking men).

Then came the hip hop generation, and the shit got complicated. Namely, black people started using the word everywhere from the corner store to the recording studio in what has widely been regarded as an effort to ‘take back’ the word and remove its harmful power. However good the intentions were in doing this, a single clear negative consequence arose…

Well-meaning whites started thinking it was OK to say it, too.

Figure 2: Viacom Viacom fucking goddamn Viacom

Oddly enough, when black people started using the word, non-blacks (whites in particular) wanted to convince themselves that the word ceased to be as a racial slur, and that it was OK for everyone to use it. Ignoring the patent weirdness of so-called non-racist white people being so eager to call black people ‘niggers’, every black person in America has certainly heard a non-black person make the following statement with complete and utter sincerity:

“I don’t get it. I mean, if black people can say it then why can’t I?”

This person is usually named ‘Chad’ and looks like this fucking guy:

Figure 3: Chad Biffington Toddwell IV

Before I address Chad, I need to explain something. Black people, like all people, have what’s called a boiling point. A boiling point is a person’s psychological threshold which, when crossed, causes that person to lose control of his or her normally functioning self. Each time a person is angered, fucked with, betrayed, or otherwise ill-treated, that person gets closer to his boiling point. Interestingly, race tends to be the determining factor in the behavior that results when a person actually reaches his boiling point. For example:

Figure 4: Losing their Shit (l to r): Whites, Asians, Arabs, Hispanics, Blacks

When Chad asks a black person “why can’t I say ‘nigger'”, 95% of black people reach their boiling point IMMEDIATELY. Contrary to popular belief, though, a black person who reaches his boiling point will usually not shoot you, shank you, or date your daughter…he will simply shut down intellectually. A blank, idiotic look creeps over his face, after which he will try to give you a response, but the words simply don’t come. He shakes his head and walks away exasperated, leaving Chad with the mistaken impression that he has a good point.

Figure 5: The goat-like stare of a black man (the author) at his boiling point

Fortunately, I’ve heard the Chad Question so many times that I’ve developed a scripted response to it:

Chad: “I don’t get it. I mean, if black people can say it then why can’t I?”
Me: “Do you have a girlfriend?”
Chad: “Uh, yea…”
Me: “Do you fuck her?”
Chad: “…..yeah….”
Me: “Cool. Mind if I fuck her?”
Chad: “DUDE! NOT COOL!”
Me: “I don’t get it. I mean, if you can fuck her then why can’t I?”

Unfortunately, this response isn’t given nearly often enough, so now we’re at the point where white people are so comfortable with the word ‘nigger’ that it can be heard, uncensored, on television programs that won’t even allow vaginas (not women) to be referred to as ‘pussies’. Abso-fucking-lutely amazing.

Barack Obama winning the presidency combined with newfound white comfort with the ‘N’ word will create the perfect storm of conditions for The Man to declare racism legally dead. After that, the only way we’ll be able to get them to examine their own inherent racsim will be to show them pictures of my friends like this one and demand they recognize how angry/uncomfortable they became:

I would like to say, That I have really, really enjoyed your blog. I am sad to see it go. I love that you tackled this subject. I wondered what your stance was on the “n!gger” issue, especially with you having such a diverse background and circle of friends. I totally agree.. what infuriates me more than white people wanting to use the word, are black people who feel the same way. Nothing highlighted this phenomenon more for me than that ice cube documentary where the black and white family trade places and the black boy felt like it was cool for his friend to use the word and a white girl had to stand up and say that it made HER uncomfortable. We have not acheived equality..Barack Obama is the best of the best: he should be a candidate for president. As long as we have to work twice as hard and be twice as good to get the same treatment we are NOT equal.

Chris gonna miss your blog terribly…I guess I’ll have to find something else to do with my time while I’m at work.

But this part right here:
Me: “Cool. Mind if I fuck her?”
Chad: “DUDE! NOT COOL!”
Me: “I don’t get it. I mean, if you can fuck her then why can’t I?”

One day you are gonna find a white boy that will say sure and ask if he can a) watch b) participate c) film it d) all of the above…

The Sarah Palin pick disgusted me! She’s a first term governer and has no national experience and is younger than Barack. For all the slamming he did of Barack, he goes and finds a younger less experienced white female version of him to get the damn P.U.M.A. dumbasses.

The world is going to hell if this works out for him.

In other words, I love Nas’s album.

Good luck with the book. Also I really enjoyed your blog. 🙂

Regarding Sarah Palin; the conservatives are going to go bonkers over her. She is super pro-life and pro-gun. McCain needed someone to add to his less-than-stellar conservative credentials and she does that.

But……I seem to remember hearing that she is under a ethics investigation. So she has a weak spot that Joe Biden can jump on.

The word should never be used to describe anyone. I break it down to intent whether it’s being said to be offensive of just being said in reference to word itself. You can’t ban a word, doing that only will make it more powerful. Although I don’t if anyone remembers that old ass movie Niggaz With Hats thats a classic.

Ms. Sula, I agree it was a dirty move, but smart? Not so sure.

It is obvious he is trying to go after Hillarybots, but he will only get the few Ferraro supporters Hillary had.

A first time gov, younger than Obama, pro-life, pro gun toting, ultra conservative, ZERO foreign policy experience, and he wants to talk about Obama’s lack of experience? At least Obama had the foresight to not just pick any white person, but one he felt had the experience he so lacked (which is not a bad thing in my book). McCain tried to go that route but his dumbass is just feeling in the dark knowing its not sufficient he is white.

My only thing with this choice is that it is a lot more political ( in the negative sense) that Obama has done. Republicans never paid attention to female voters in the past, she is totally a token candidate and frankly its insulting.

White ppl wanna use the N word b/c of white privaledge. They feel that every thing in society should inherently be acessible to them, including other people’s cultures. Elizabeth Hasselbeck was crying onthe view for that very reason. Not being able to use a word that black people use makes her feel like her rights are being trampled on as an American. Also it reminds them that equality is a fairly new concept in America.

Edumucated, I can see how black people, especially educated ones can get mad at blacks who seem to not want to uplift themselves but we should see them as victims of the system and do our best to give back, or at least try to do as much as we can for the youth.

Most of us are educated because our parents were and we are lucky as hell. If our parents were not educated they did our damndest to make sure we were. Nobody gets anywhere without someone helping them or at least telling them they can do it. Not to mention kids who grow up hearing they aint never gonna be shit. I used to teach in DC public schools and that shit was draining. The stories these kids told…it was a surprise they were looking to the future at all.

Let’s not be so hard on them. There are some folks who don’t wanna do shit, but every society has those, and they don’ have Jim Crow to attrbute it to.

This is him ” There are a lot of racist cats calling me nigger, that is not coll. I will find the nigga who hacked my Myspace Account?”

The cat who hacked his account was a Chinese dude.

And how these people call themselves a hip hop generation, Did black people in 1979 call themselves a Disco generation. Listening to some of these cats who should really be in school you would be forgiven for thinking that black people had nothing before graffiti and beats.

You could make a case for Hip hop generation being the most dumbed down generation. Really they should call the asses, the Madden Generation.

And if Clinton supporters will really vote Republican because his running mate has a vagina, they aren’t really about issues. She is an extreme conservative and her a Hillary agree on…nothing! Only been the governor of Alaska for 1.5 years. And was the mayor before that…talk about inexperienced….

Okay, so I guess I do have a second to comment.

I grew up in a white neighborhood for a large majority of my life. I was usually one of like 5 black children in a school until I got to high school. I NEVER heard the word nigga in conversation until I was around black kids.

NEVER.

I never used the word nigga at all, much less to describe other blacks until I was around black kids, and that is a damn shame. It is a disgusting word, that we ALL need to do away with. There is no such thing as removing power from a word like that by using it ad nasuem, so what the hell is wrong with so many of us?

Yeah, these hardcore women feminists can go and vote for McCain if they want to, but it would be for a bogus ass reason. Just because she IS a woman doesn’t mean she will change women’s lives for the better. She’s a conservative for hell sakes. It’s like saying, I would vote for Larry Elder for president if he ran since he’s black. The fuck outta here. How would his ass backwards mentality toward racism help me?

Hillary Clinton will be put to the test in terms of how much she agrees with the Obama pick and her willingness to ride or die with the democrats. She needs to campaign and pick this VP pick to bed b/c she can talk about how this was a token move and urge her supporters to pay attention to the issues and not the emotions. She will need to do this ASAP. If obama does it, it will play to the emotion of these Clinton robots.
Also, it does neutralize Biden a little bit b/c if he is aggressive as we expect him to be, then the GOP will play the victim role.

This pick was weak b/c she doesn’t shore up his weakness, ECONOMY and McCain already said he is weak in that area. however, I do respect the GOP gangsta b/c they will do whatever they like regardless of how it looks. They finished the last two months talking lack of experience and then picks someone with no experience. Like “yea I said that, AND WHAT”

While my father is an exiled prisoner he did not oppose Castro and Che per se. He happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time (fairly high ranking military official under Batista). He doesn’t blame the revolutionaries for what has happened in Cuba, but rather the United States for their involvement and efforts to control the island. He always says he wishes he could go back there and see his family before he dies. Just remember it is the American Government who also introduced Crack into America so that they could use the drug money to finance the Contras in Nicaragua. This same war is also the reason Iran has the weapons they do. American do or die supporters need to learn their history about Latin America before they speak. Archbishop Oscar Romero was also assassinated with the help of the US Gov.

Let me clarify PLEASE. What I meant by that is that I did not come off hating Castro, Cuba, etc like your average 2520 American (I’m hoping people of color would look deeper).

So are you saying you supported the American colonization of Cuba and the complete control of the sugar industry?

HELL NO! Cmon, my parents immigrated from Africa, I KNOW better. In fact, my lack of anger at Fidel, despite his shortcomings, is that he is not bending over backwards for the US.
This same war is also the reason Iran has the weapons they do. American do or die supporters need to learn their history about Latin America before they speak. Archbishop Oscar Romero was also assassinated with the help of the US Gov.

Trust me, I write dissertations on this stuff. My last article was titled, Enduring Racism: The American Rite. Dude, I know the history of US foreign/economic policy in Latin America, Africa, and the ME. Who supported Saddam WHILE he was oppressing the Kurds and Shia people see to be so concerned about now. I know about the BS foreign policy and what dictates it. The first thing I heard, and what stuck with me the most in one of my first IR classes what that “geography determines foreign policy”.That’s why 19 of the 20 hijackers came from Saudi Arabia (damn that fake ass kingdom…save Mecca) but who did we go after?

From Wikipedia: Details of Palin’s personal life have contributed to her political image. She hunts, eats moose hamburger, ice fishes, rides snowmobiles, and owns a float plane.[13][53] Palin holds a lifetime membership with the National Rifle Association. She admits that she used marijuana when it was legal in Alaska, but says that she did not like it.[10] In December 2007, Palin posed for a photo spread in the fashion magazine Vogue.

I agree with the overall jist of the post.

But I think it’s worth noting that rappers didn’t just start saying nigga on their own accord. They learned it from somewhere. Black folks have been saying nigga/nigger for just as long as whites have been calling them that. The difference is, when hip hop became mainstream, our private conversations became public, and when it blew up folks wanted to emulate and bring out all the “if you can say it, why can’t I?” bullshit.

A forum would be better for the way topics shift on here anyway.

Polls (as much as you can trust them) showed Obama pick up alot of Hillary supporters. If Hillary pounds them on this VP pick it will kill any steam they can get. Palin being prolife won’t help amongst the ladies either.

I just found this blog a few weeks ago, and now I’m really sad that it’s going away. Ah, well.

Moreover…thank you. I’m white, but I have a visceral hatred of this word. For the record, I have the same response you describe above for the question about white people using it…except I might even get the question more often, since (being white) I’m obviously supposed to agree with Chad. When instead I just want to knock him out and remove him from the gene pool.

Again…thanks again for this blog. I’m really interested in your book.

Love the script! What a way to go out Chris! The blog will be missed!

On to other news: WHAT A DAY THE LORD HAS MADE!!!!! McCain picked a White woman. My first reaction: anger, fear, frustration. Salty, stupid Hillary supporting White bitches will vote red. This is a final death knell to Black female/White female realtions, which have always been terse and strained anyway.

HOWEVER, I feel that this will FINALLY teach Black men that White women are no less devils than their male counterparts and, as Black men need to see themselves in power so badly, this White woman represents the potential for that to not happen, as do the droves of cave bitches who will undoubtebly support her. But the sisters, who ALWAYS choose race over gender (this time, for the right reasons) will be right here with you standing strong! Barack’s choice of a Black wife was already doing us mad favors, but this is just icing on my monoracial cake!

She brings a strong anti-abortion stance to the ticket and opposes gay marriage — constitutionally banned in Alaska before her time — but exercised a veto that essentially granted benefits to gay state employees and their partners.

She needs to get her political chips in order. I dont think they will vote red just to see that woman in office. Hillary supporters side with Hil-Dawg because they can relate to her – Her husband CHEATED publically, and she still bounced back. And they have a secrect lesbian thing for her (maybe not). Palin (sp) is a fmr beauty queen and opposes gay rights and is pro life. Them dykes(hillary supporters) not having that.

I do not hold White people to higher standards than those I hold Black people to. People of all races vote their race or gender before their politics. Not twenty years ago, Black men AND women* supported Clarence “What Souter said” Thomas, despite his conservative politics just to see another Black man in the Supreme Court. All this bitch needs is a catchy phrase a la “high tech lynching” to tug on White women’s heartstrings and Obama better watch out. And you know one of her kids is a Corky. God help us.

Meanwhile, look at your STRONG BLACK SISTAS like Michele working to get our Black KANG Obama in office! Guess who loves you more?

Five Stages of Grief

Bargaining: Chris…I’m sorry about what I said before. I was just a little upset and I said some things I didn’t mean. I think tiger woods is cute (if you like big teeth) and it wouldn’t be so bad if your kids looked a little like him. And black women do love you. Some of them are just intimidated by you. I just think….I just think we should be able to work this out. I mean, we’ve invested 6 months in this e-relationship and we’ve had more good times than bad. Haven’t we? I mean…can’t we just go back to the way things used to be…in the beginning? Remember the Fraudulent Four? That was a good day, huh? The forum isn’t such a bad idea if you think about it. I mean, it would be less of a demand on your time and we could all keep the family together. Everybody wins. C’mon Chris, compromise.

For some reason, in the last few years, I started using the word, albeit very infrequently. I really don’t know why. I don’t say it in front of everybody though, because I don’t need to be on campus using the word and have some white folk asking me about it. Hell, it was bad enough I was in a class last year explaining black hair care.

2520s are bold.

Once, when I was a kid, I went to the museum field trip and a group of slightly older white girls in private school uniforms came up to me and my friends, also in uniforms, and said something along the lines of “I didn’t know there were nigger private schools.”

Another time, in high school, a young redneck stole my yearbook, I found out, got it back, called him out, and his best reply was “Fucking niggers”.

what did i do? took my dads recorder to school, waited til after i called him a fat fuck pig looking mothafucker to turn on the recorder, he called me every racial epithet known to black ppl…then i told him if he’d kindly excuse me, i got a visit to the principals office.

@ Chris! I don’t know how to quit you (in keeping with the Palin and Gay rights discussion).

You really have to watch who you use that line with because, as mentioned above, somebody will want to watch, video tape, and perhaps participate.

Down in M-I-A they have a group called the Mandingos that do that mess right? I saw that on Real Sex on HBO LOL.

Ah, a forum is a wonderful idea…and a reunion is even better. When I’m not deployed I’m 45 minutes fro Philly and 90 minutes from NY so either one is wonderful to me…although in support of Chris and the place that resulted in him being so angry perhaps DC would be a better option? It’s just an Amtrak ride away.

That word…I don’t use that word…and I HATE when other folks call each other and others that word like it’s okay. I actually curse out EVERYONE, in a cold polite way, around me who uses it. I got into a serious “I’m not speaking to you for DAYS” argument with one of puerto rican peoples out here because he would ALWAYS use that nonsense and then be like, “Well they made the people on the island slaves first and hispanic is our slave name.” I would just go off.

Back on topic…Chris, I understand you have outgrown this but it’s hard to let go of something I just discovered and keeps me sane at work. Now I HAVE to go on Facebook again. I just went back there so I could just the SBPH group but now I have to be a REGULAR. BTW I’ll buy the book my dear…promise.

OFF TOPIC AGAIN…McCain…BURY YOURSELF YOU SMUG CODE OF CONDUCT VIOLATING HORRIBLE VA CONGRESSIONAL BILL VOTING RECORD ELITIST OLD PERSON! Seriously…Alaska? Cindy…that cast is not from a handshake honey…you and I both know that man is beating your ass. You don’t have to lie to kick it. Cindy is going to Georgia soon right…how is it he thinks it’s okay for CINDY to take this PR trip to Georgia…shouldn’t he send Palin is Biden already went?

I’m rambling…it’s almost 12:30 AM and i have to be at work at 6…and I still haven’t recovered from my ridiculous trip back to Afghanistan from Qatar that somehow involved me flying all over the middle east and taking over 25 hours to make what should have be a 3 hour flight.

I really want to hear Hillary get after McSame for his shameless pandering to the mom-jeans w/sneakers, giant SUV with two kids, blonde helmeted bob, sweatshirts over polo shirts PUMAs.

I’m so sad that the blog is leaving, especially since I just discovered it!! Anywho Chris, I wish you the best of luck I will definitely be picking up your book

I personally dont like when whites use nigger. I admit that I use it way too much an I am making a conscious effort to stop. It’s hard though because I’m in college and some of my black friends just do some outright niggerish stuff sometimes. I try to replace it with ghetto (which isnt much better) but it’s a hard habit to break.

It’s bad enough that white people use but hispanics, latinos, and any other race feel liberated to use it. I was in the club last night just having a grand ol time when I look up at the television to find it on the hispanic station. My spanish is rusty so I didnt know what it meant but there was a news-like setting with the caption in big letters NIGGA. Not nigger or niggah but NIGGA!! I was beyond pissed!! I was so mad!! What made it worse was that the mexicans were doing “nigga” activities that they felt black people would do. I was so embarassed, sad, and disgusted. It ruined my whole mood for the rest of the night.

They are going back and forth as to whether or not the levee’s will hold. Part of me thinks they hope that they won’t so it’ll be a big story.

I lived in Alaska for three years (just got to the dc area a few weeks ago). . .there are a lot of black people up there. . .most of us were military . ..the Blaskans were the native ones that refused to leave because of the dividend.

This time it’s not because of his (extreme) hotness, but because this post hit the nail on the head (except for Figure 1; “pickininny” and “mud person” have to be worse than “colored.”) Bravo, Chris. Bravo!

I only wish more Chads would read this and understand it. Unfortunately though, they – like Republicans – have a strong resistance to logic. The key point, which you summed up so lovely, is why – if they are not racists – are they so eager to use the word? Fucking 2520’s.

Now, back to the real deal: I can’t wait for public book signings so I can start following Chris around the country and putting tiny video cameras in his hotel bathrooms.

Some NPR (of course) person pointed out that technically she has more executive experience than Obama, McCain and Biden combined. His larger point was – so?

Obama was president of the Harvard Law Review, meaning he had more executive experience than her. Since he oversaw more pwoplw ar Harvard than she did in Alaska

What type of judgement does McCain really have? Obama and Biden already called him out on that with their speeches and McCain does it again with this pick.

This guy who says that he loves this country and yet his VP is someone with NO experience. The person who is suppose to be “one heartbeat away from the President seat”, who was a mayor of city that population may be smaller than some high schools and governor where Deers probably outnumber people living in the state. Obama picks someone with years of experience, former candidate himself who has a better chance of stepping in if something happens to Obama (God forbid). McCain is freaking 72 years old and had issues with cancer so youth is not on his side. I am not wishing anything bad to him but REALLY…

I really appreciate the comment about the white girl in class being the one who stood up and said she was offended.

Im sure there are people who will have something to say about it but I am white, have dated interracially quite often and live in Mississippi (where some think racism is on a rampage, I suppose)

However, I am CONSTANTLY the only one who asks other to not use the n-word. Among my friends, we refer to it as ‘the word’ and when they are mad at me or want to offend me, that is the first thing they will say.

I am ashamed of the history of this country but there are some people who do want to change and yes, the word was created for poor use and as long as people accept it as acceptable (esp the Soulja Boy case, that was just ignorant) it will never change.

All we are doing is teaching future generations to continue to hold on to it.

The first time I heard the n-word was also from a black person, as a previous comment mentioned, when I went home to ask my mother about it, she said it was a word that meant trash, and that it crossed all racially lines and was never to be used or accepted in our house but it is quite frustrated feeling uncomfortable listening to music because I have to obviously edit myself from the lack of it being done by the artist…

I have a book called Nigger: The Career of A Troublesome Word by author Randall Kennedy. Its a pretty quick read, but it goes into the depth of the word, the many forms in which it is used and how it effects people. The book also compares Nigger to other racial slurs as honkey, wetback, cracker etc, etc.

As a child and well into my adult years I never would say nigga. Even tho most of my friends would throw it around I could never get that word to come out of my mouth. Lately I have been using the term. Not often, but usually as a way to express my lack of admiration for certain Black folks. Like for example if I see some dude pull up to an apartment in a tricked out Escalade, I would say ‘look at this fool-ass nigga’. As a black person I have never used it as a term of endearment. But I still feel I have permission to use the term. And I dont have a problem with Black people using the word as a term of endearment. But I feel it is absolutely off limits to whites and other minorites. But I can make an exception for Puerto Ricans, if theyre Black.

I’ve been called ‘nigger’ by a red headed redneck, once. I got freckles, guess that makes me a person of color. My German grandpa used to call colored folks ‘darkies’, I asked him if I was a ‘lightie’ or a ‘darkie’.

Did you know that nappy hair and very dark skin are more derived (less primitive biologically speaking) than straight hair and pale skin? From research on human ancestral biology, I’ve found that most likely between 5,000,000 years ago and 200,000 years ago, human ancestors were tan-freckled in spring, brown-black in summer, tan-freckled in autumn, yellow-white in winter, and that local “permanent” skin color only happened as a result of sedentary agriculture in the last 15,000 years. The nappy hair was selected for in tropical humid inland areas where crocs and hippos prevented daily swimming, while long straight hair was advantageous hydrodynamically for daily diving for shellfish at seashores but not for inland boat trips or pastoral goat herding. There’s a lot more to it if interested, check out my sites at the ARC and Coffee blender blogs. Peace. Sayang. DD

ok that’s all pretty fair except the episode behind that south park pic you showed is all about how Randy (the guy in the picture) is alienated from the community because he (reluctantly) used that word.

And Viacom has no creative control over South Park.

I spent 20 minutes on a mile-long post here that was basically a fuck you to the writer of this blog. It’s disappointing to see that there are people out there who want to take away the white man’s freedom of speech.

Anyone can use any word, in any way that they want to.

Black people: you have no right to get violent over hearing the word nigger or any derivative out of a white person’s mouth.

White people: you don’t need to say nigger or any derivative to a black person unless you mean it.

Any if you’re going to cry about a cartoon character saying nigger on South Park, just keep forgetting that it goes both ways.

Watch any all-black sitcom (excluding the Cosby show) that ran in the mid-90s to the present. You are guaranteed to find some sort of hate against white people there.

I’m glad your blog is disappearing, and if it has already, then even better.

You’re polluting the minds of your brothers and sisters with self-serving cry-baby “someone else is responsible for the way I am” slop.

Sorry but fucking someone’s significant other is a completely different scenario. It’s apples and oranges. So the question still stands: Why can black people use ‘nigger’ (and in fact sling it all over the place) and white people can’t? The cause of the ‘goat face’ is simple. There is no good reason. The solution is simple. Either A) stop having a double standard or B) stop using it altogether. Thanks.

“Oddly enough, when black people started using the word, non-blacks (whites in particular) wanted to convince themselves that the word ceased to be as a racial slur”

Oddly enough, you don’t have to be that bright to spot utter hypocrisy when it rears its head.

Many women object to the use of a word that begins with ‘c’ and rhymes with stunt. Its not a word I use very often and never in front of a woman. However I do know one or two girls who will use the word themselves, as an insult. As far as Im concerned the fact that they use it means that Im given de facto permission to use it in front of them too (though I dont actually).

Why do Niggers so love to call each other Niggers? Maybe they know how to distinguish the real Niggers without being racist? Maybe they just know that a nappy flaping lipped Nigger is a Nigger.

dazmo

that exasperated feeling you get is actually the reality of your absurd hatred for the word nigger sinking in on you. deep down you understand that the reason you hate the word nigger is because you HAVE to. in order to keep garnering sympathy from governments and white women you have to have a reason to be pissed at an entire race even if you have to make it up.
face it, you were never a slave, and your parents probably werent either.
your grandparents probably were, because theyre tribe was taken over and sold to another tribe who didnt need the labor and sold them to a ship full of spice traders who had no clue what to do with half of them.
and if it hadnt happened you would have aids, or hiv, or some other horrible disease but you probably wouldnt give a shit so long as you could still trade your prepubescent daughter to your brother for a cow.

white people will never stop saying nigger, just like black people will never stop being mad about it.
white people are the insult champions of earth, don’t be a hater.

in all truth though. . . i understand. no matter what happens people are still going to look at you and see a nigger, at least thats what you think and to a degree you are right.
my advice is to adapt. there are stereotypes that go along with being a nigger that are not all bad. and therye steadily getting better. continue to improve. slang is malleable. the word will not change, but the meaning will.

27 07 2009
dazmo

if you dont believe me, have a look at some other slang racist terms, like spic, and chink.
when i think of a jew i think of someone who likely has a knack for working with money.
when i think of a chink i think of someone whos badass at martial arts, or is really good at math.
when i think of a spic i think of someone who is generally resilient and easygoing and has strong ties to their family, and culture.
but when you think of a nigger, you think of someone who is likely to lose it and murder people if they hear the word nigger. unless a nigger says it, cause even niggers are afraid of niggers.
white people are actually in it with you, when i hear “white trash” i think of overweight mothers who are bad at raising children, halftarded blonds who were malnourished as a child and wears the same size clothes she did when she was seven whether they fit or not, a fat guy with a rebel flag tattoo that goes “WooWee” as he slams his head into a beer can, the weird lanky dude with a goatee and a meth habit. fortunately this kind of thing is funny and we dont care.

these are my biases and im far from alone in my views on them. kick my ass why dont ya.
