Nothing you said isn't addressed in my post, and like usual you can't make an opposing point to a non-regular without slipping in some condescending comment. I know from experience you're only trying to get a hostile reaction from me and that's not happening.
Holy shit. I was not trying to get a hostile reaction from you, I honestly don't give a shit. I said;
If you can't see how some people would see a white person using the word in any context as offensive due to the history of the word...well, then you're either playing dumb or actually dumb.
not because I was looking to get a rise out of you, but because I feel you're missing out on (or willingly ignoring) the history and negative usage of the word, which is so blatantly obvious and well-known, that you'd have to be 'dumb' not to understand it. You, however, took it as a personal attack and ignored the rest. So, here's the rest, without the dumb part;
Ha. Yeah, except for the white people who still use it with hate and venom...which is why some black people (and people of any race) object to white people using the word.
Which is all I'm trying to say. You and your white buddies may not care that you drop the word, and you may hear rappers and actual, real black people saying it, but due to the history and venom the word carries, you can't act like some people are ever
going to be OK with you using it.
