Re: The N Word
I'm on the opposite end of most in the thread. I'm black, and I absolutely hate the word.
Never used, get annoyed when anyone uses it.
It's not just the racial undertones that bothers me about the word, it's also that when anyone uses it, they come off like either a dumbass or a douchebag. Usually both.
The first thing that pops up in my head when someone uses it isn't "they are racist" or "they're a bigot". It's, "you're being an idiot". Much like when someone uses gay in a derogatory way.
