RE: Should white people be able to say the N-word

maybe anyone can say anything. Fearing the word, and thinking it offends you, is what makes it bad. If I said “the word, nigger, was used as an insult”, that’s not insulting right?

It’s not insulting because im not directing it AT YOU.

“The word stupid means mentally regressed” is not offensive, but saying “you’re fucking stupid” is offensive, right?

When I make a joke containing the word “nigger”. it’s not my intent to remind you of your ancestors generations of suffering.

I was not the one causing their suffering. It’s just a word, and it only has as much meaning as you interpret. 

Anyone can say anything. The general rule is, don’t be a jerk.
