Now as for that word Ni-ger well, I once saw this show on TV titled You know you are a redneck when: and it appeared to be well received by a lot of white country folks who wore or accepted that term (Redneck) as a badge of honor. However I'm pretty sure that there were folks who didn't want that term used in reference to themselves because of the offensive and derogatory implications.. The same is true for the word Ni-ger which some black folk seem to embrace as a term of endearment.
Well, I'm going to use another word and that word is Fa-got. Which by the way before it became so offensive actually meant (a bundle of sticks or twigs bound together as fuel).
Now what if there were certain members of the Gay community who decided that they would use this word as a term of endearment in ways of expression.
Yo, what's up my fa-got? My fa-got is down with me. That's my fa-got you talk'in bout there bro. or Yo Yo Yo, my fa-got and me hold'in it down son. Yo dog, why you sweat'in my fa-got like that? and etc. I believe that you get my drift. How well do you think that would be received? Exactly!
Now there is a time and place for everything but personally I don't think that this is the time nor place for the word Ni-ger.. But hey, that's not my call, it's yours.
Bottom line is: What does your heart tell you?
Excellent comment Al D. I remember a decade or two in the past when society was lukewarm about racial strife, name calling and other political minutia with little or no social impact where a great majority of us swore that in some obscure dictionary they claim the word ni**er meant anybody of low quality, even Whites.
