I'm going to side with black people here.
Black people can say the N word.
White people cannot.
Think of it as reparations.
The only time white people can use the N-word is when they are greeting
white friends and NO black people are around. Then it is permissible
to say in greeting...
YO!...What UP *N* !
To you black people...We white folk actually do that all the time
Think of it as a compliment...
I don't quite understand your use of sarcasm when you said "since you have experienced it, it must be true."
Are you trying to say I'm extrapolating my personal experiences to the entire population? Or are you saying that, even though I experienced these things, it does not matter or is somehow irrelevant.
I'm not trying to be contentious, I'm just asking for clarification.
Also, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply you were accusing me of those things. Again, I was just ranting because every time I do my job, I get accused of those things. It's almost like I'm conditioned to defend my opinion with disclaimers of "I'm Not Racist."
Please understand, if I so much as discuss an issue with certain minority employees at my place of work, I have received comments from every angle of the intolerance spectrum. It gets old fast.
