    This thing over the "n" word...

    I look at it like this:

    If I hear a yt person calling another yt person a "honkey", I don't figure
    that to give me privilege to call that person a honkey. Unless I meant
    to be offensive.

    Or if I hear one of my friends call his girl/wife by a pet name, that does not
    give me province to call her by that pet name.

    thats a nice version.. I broke it down to this one dude like this:
    "I can't pat your wife on the as*, can I?" Why not? you can pat it,
    how come I can't pat it?".. after the redness passed he understood
    what I was saying.. I don't use the word on a regular basis, but when
    I do use it it's contextually appropriate.. Paul Mooney is talking about his
    role in making the word cool.. and he's talking about his personal role in that
    going back 40 years.. Richard came to the same conclusion.. and it really
    had to do with recognizing how their art was being used against their own
    people.. you know, how you talk different when you have company or when
    white folks is listening.. Their are things we can say and ways we can be
    within the relative privacy of our own communities that would be completely
    misunderstood out in mainstream culture.. so it's about context.. that's
    why I can't pat his wife on the as*.. well I could but it would most likely
    be misunderstood.. or not. :)

    lol

    black anglo saxon lol the massacard lol hahahahahahahaha. In his early days i guess he wanted to kill the bite of the N word, but now realizes it's not good in any form. When you look at the true basis of the word and the origin of why it was used, one should refrain from using the word. Out of respect for the ancestors alone, if nothing else.
