That someone that said it was ignorant was me. You should reply to the post next time. It would be easier for me to see you disagree.
Not once I have called you ignorant. Just wrote that it would be ignorant to say.
I did post this part.
Second : Because It is you that still lingers in the past.
I can be wrong, but I can only learn from it when you tell me.
That's why I write this post. I like learning. That's where I'm here for.
If you felt offended, I'm sorry. It was not my intention to do so.
I'm a white guy and I do not live in the states. I would not use the N word if it meant I would offend others by using it. But to me the word holds
no more weight then for example sandwich does. You are also welcome to call me stupid or whatever. It does not bother me if you did.
We're cool ?
You say that the word has been used to desensitize it when it was used in the past. Right ?
Obviously this didn't really work...
However those that use it idly and are ignorant to the past, they actually grew beyond that point where it has a negative meaning, whatever the
reason. Right ?
That leaves me with a few possible options.
1. They still feel offended but are ignorant of the past. This will make them the racists.
2. No offense and ignorant would be good and simply means one less option to divide / spread hate.
3. They know their history and choose not to use the world at all. Use amongst each other makes others think that it is ok.
4.They still use it while they do know their history. Which is just hypocritical IMO and it makes them to keep up th wall that divides.
Not mentioned are those who offend intentionally...
Please don't feel offended by my post as it would be the wrong response.
I do not intend to offend. Feel free to correct me where I'm wrong. I would appreciate it.
