I call my black friends nigga sometime. They reciprocate. I hear white people and other non black people everyday be like "wussup my nigga!" And if
your a black male under thirty, you probably do it everyday yourself. I don't hear black people, or many others use the word 'n-word'. I don't use it,
but it sure looks ugly spelled out.
I have been called a chink since childhood, even though I am not Asian. I also been called a wetback, border hopper, even though I am not Mexican, and
was born in Florida.
The people who do say 'n-word', well I have seen them have no shame using the word, an usually do not hide their racism one bit. I did not care to be
called the name I have been called. I have been told to go home (even though I was born in this city), even mistaken for an Arab somehow. I just
started laughing it all off as a teenager, especially when the black kids would call me cracker. But at least when they figured out I was from
Hispanic parents, they'd call me chico. White kids in school at the time, no matter how many times it would be stated I was Colombian (because not
like they care to remember) they would either call me Puerto Rican, or Mexican. When I was in school, those were pretty much the only Spanish people
that existed in America, at least to ignorant school kids.
I have always had a very diverse set of friends from many backgrounds. In my experience, and I do hate to say it because I know it does not apply
across the board, but Native White Americans (those descended from the European colonists) in my experience, even with my own friends, have always
been the ones that said the most racists things. Followed by black people, with their "cracker this, and cracker that". Hispanics tend to be less
racist, but do maintain nationality rivalries for some strange reason.
I notice Chinese, Korean, Japs and others tend to be racist too, but more towards black people again. What a shame. India people to me are the
racist by my experience, and are almost always very polite and pleasant to socialize with. But unless they are second generation
Americans, it can be difficult to break into their social groups. They remind me of Jews, very tight nit and closed up, but are still more welcoming
The only Jews I have ever met always talked down to me as a person, with the exception of a nice Puerto Rican Jew lady. So I don't have the best
measure or opinion of them. matter fact, I worked with a guy that was Mexican and had a Jewish parent too. He was a really nice fellow. Seems the
nicer Jews I have met are always Hispanic lol!
Nigger, spick, cracker, chink, mic, Shylock, pol, fag, bitch, pussy, dick, they are all just words. They will only hurt if you let them right?
Its about to get very hot in my direction
