I don’t believe it should be socially acceptable for non black individuals to say the n word. it has a double meaning when coming from anybody that is not of black decent in munich opinion.
Lemme be honest with you,I’m mixed,black with white, I dont think anybody should be saying the n word,its ridiculous that anybody still does,apparantly its racist when white people say it,but not when blacks use it,but it’s a word with no value,theres no reason anyone needs to use the word nigger or nigga ever,but for some magical reason,people still do,and these types of threads cause stupid uproar for no reason, the n word conversation of who should be able to say it or not,is pointless,and my feelings arent gonna get hurt from someone calling me the n word,but I cant speak for others obviously,there are dumb people out there that feel that if you say the N word and your not black you and your whole family deserve to die,There are dumb mother fuckers killing eachother because of that word,,but it’s never gonna go a way,that’s just how this world is,its filled with hate,and theres literally nothing we can do about besides watch it
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.
I dont think anyone should be saying it really. But if I had to choose, no white people- or people of any other race other then black should not say it.
It’s kind of like if you call a girl a “bitch ” simply because she’s a girl. Me, as a female, can call myself a bitch because that’s me. I can in turn call my friends “bitches” as a friendly jab, only if they are alright with that of course. However if a man comes up and says “sup bitch” that is very not ok and your getting punched in the nose.
From a logical standpoint, the word “nigger, or nigga” shouldn’t be used at all by anybody. After all, the word itself was originally created during the Transatlantic Slave Trade as a means of dehumanizing Black People. In addition, Black people became so emotionally, physically, and mentally broken because of their hundreds of years of enslavement, that they continued to use the word amongst themselves after their so called “freedom” in 1862 from the Emancipation Proclamation. This still carries on to this day, however people of certain races are now willing to claim this filthy word for themselves and restrict it from White People. However, claiming the word itself is dehumanizing due to its ORIGINAL MEANING. That’s why nobody should say it all!
Obviously if you’re black, it’s up to you how you use the word. Besides that though, I don’t think white people should be able to say it. The word has done a lot of harm to people of color in the past, and I believe it should stay in the past. That doesn’t go to say that I don’t think we should teach people about the past and what the word used to mean. I think some people will say the word because they don’t understand the meaning behind it. I think by teaching people what it means, and how it’s harmed others we can prevent the misuse of words/labels in the future (or so I would hope). It’s really unfortunate that these meanings and such aren’t always explained properly, it would help to avoid more confusion. I can say from personal experience, that I had no idea about the word’s history for the longest time, so when I really began to understand I was shocked. So since then, I’ve stressed the importance of educating others on history to attempt and prevent repeats as well as offending others unintentionally ❤️
tbh now that i think of it, it wouldn’t even be a problem if blacks didn’t say it either. Why use a word that was used to insult your kind, it just doesn’t make sense and it’d be better to just move on from it. Main message, “ni**a” should be removed from anyones vocabulary.
