Who wants to use the “N” word?

I am well aware of the rhetorical grenade that I am tossing here. The question is very important, and it deserves a serious discussion.

If ATS were to suddenly remove its content restriction, then the “N” word, as well as other
“colorful” expressions, would flow like beer at a college frat party. To some people it's as natural as belching.

But today, in 2014, there is a pervasive, controlling rule of political correctness that was absent in the recent past. You can rarely utter the “N” word (as a white person; more on that later), without sanction or recrimination. This leads to bitterness and resentment of rights that are perceived to be lost.

To me, it is a mark of progress that we all seem to react with holy indignation at any accusation or suggestion of racism. Until recently, it would have been scoffed at with a chuckle.

So back to my question. Is there anyone here (whose skin is as white as mine) who freely uses the word (in certain circles)?

By the way, I can recall no post on ATS that convinced me that I was witnessing a racist.

Also by the way, please do not bring up the idea of blacks using the “N” word.
That's another thread altogether.

I am sure that I will get the grenade tossed back to me.

Only to a few select black friends (old friends)
Honestly, we laugh about it and they call me names back too. Just good banter.

Its just a bunch of letters. Its not the word that is insulting, its the way it is used, in my opinion.

I would never use it on a stranger though, I value my teeth.lol

I hate it more when someone says "N-Word" more than the real "N-Word" itself.

Because you are really saying n***** without actually saying it.

When people use "N-Word". They make me think " n*****" in my head.

I agree, its ridiculous. People have no backbone these days.

Sticks and stones.......

You can call me whatever word you want, I'll probably just giggle.

Extremely derogatory words are intended to induce emotional response and veil common sense.

I never do it. When I hear others using it around me I stop them and ask them to explain why. Once the rational brain kicks in, they stop.

Two suffixes
-ga
And
-ger

Whatever you do NEVER use the - ger version. Shame on you if you do. That's all I have to contribute to this

The only time I use the N word is when discussing how rediculous the perception of this word being a bad word is. I've been called a few names in the past that I won't name, but I don't try to cram not using these words down people's throats. I do understand that down south, the N word was misused, also in some big cities up north. Here they are just black guys and women/girls. No big deal. I don't even think there are very many blacks around here that are the type associated with the N word. Most blacks here are students or professional people. There are a few that are trouble makers but there are also increasing numbers of all types of people getting in trouble.

Some of these new drugs are destroying the youths ability to comprehend things correctly. It is much worse around here than when I was that age.

If used in that way. Its all about how they are used. When I use them, its usually to get a laugh from friends who reply with a fitting insult as a reply. Male bonding usually involves some friendly insults. No harm at all.

sorry, had a thought.
Why are there not any good slurs for white people???
This is offensive to me, all we get is honky,whitey,white bread, gringo...etc.
none of these are even that offensive sounding.
I want a good one darn it

Don't "want" to use it, but I have in certain discussions when the topic is that specific word. I have never used that term to belittle or degrade someone based on their race.

I live in an area that has a pretty good mix of people. White, Black, Asian and Mexican. I usually hear white women and young white males using the n-word. The younger black folks around here used to say it quite a bit, but they have mellowed out over time.

But the young white boys are bad about it.

So much going on in the world and you want to talk about the N word!

FFS!

If I were engaged in the discussion of the book Huckleberry Finn, it's an extremely useful term to be able to add to your vocabulary. In addition to its uses in general discussions about racism.

I don't use it ever and don't want to, I don't know why anyone else would want to either except to cause anger or harm or for attention and I don't understand people like that.

I don't think another thread on this topic is necessary. Stop stirring the pot.

I use the word.

One of my best friends is black. The first day we met and his 1st sentence to me he called me a "cracka ass". I called him a big ugly n****r back and his scowl broke into a smile and then a laugh. He was probably laughing because he's the size of a small car and.....I'm not. We became friends instantly and still remain close today.

We call each other all types of racist names; it's all a game for us.

He agrees that when blacks choose to stop using the word then whites should follow suit out of respect. But until then, in his own words..."if n***as gonna act like n***as call em' out.

Do I use the word with my white friends? No.

Well let me be honest...Maybe an occasional "n***a please".

Political correctness is a method to self police. Never before have I seen relatively intelligent people froth at the mouth over some PC nonsense which in reality was (and still is) a non-issue.

It's like a funnel, the funnel is political correctness and what goes through the wide end is critical thinking. What comes out the small end is an accepted belief which we've all been conditioned to.
