People think it's cool when U call your friend *****, The origination of the word isn't even considered. They say it's different cuz U put the A on the end, But if a white person says it, we go on the defense. Why is that? Cuz apparently it's wrong... Even if they put an A where the er belongs. But who's 2 blame, except us 4 trying 2 use it as a term of endearment. But if we use it when we're angry, hostility is clearly meant. So U know it's complete garbage... How can a word that shows love also be what gets fights started? People take brother/sister & replace the E-R with an A, Even though it's spelled differently, it still means the same thing. If it's really a term of endearment, call your grandfather that, Then watch the look on his face & note how he reacts. There're hundreds of nouns that express friendship & love that exist in the English language, All of them can be used by the people who made it, Unlike *****.
