If you can say it about urself, then can u really be suprised when others think it`s ok too?
No not really honestly no one should say the word, if its offensive to an entire race, like chink, spick, juden, etc. how bout we all use the F*bomb cause that alrdy has plenty of uses if you are curious check out this video
*DISCLAIMER*I, in no way, support the use of the n word or any other racial slurs, they are wrong and should only be used as a means to a joke when around those who are comfortable with its use, and are no way offended. And i mean now way offended
That word would have died a death already if people could learn to a) stop using it to make up the bulk of every gangsta rap b) stopped debating the use of it!!!
Now look how much trouble it causes.
I am a racist!
Hear ya Zero. We do. But IAB is a 13+ rated website, and we`re proud of that (or at least I am. All I can say is, I would let my kid surf here).
The swear filter is an annoyance, but come on, we can live with it. But again, yeah, I hear ya Zerocyde.
And thanks for the cool submitted links recently, please keep `em coming!
Because, we weren`t oppressed for hundreds of years and called something that reminds us of the bad times. And WTF @ "whites were slaves at one point to" Whites is way to general of a term to be used to refer to a time in history. Plus cracker isn`t a word made up by black people to oppress white people. It`s a word describing a thin dry biscuit of a kind eaten with cheese.
*goes and watches it again*
Yep still funny as hell! rofl!
No offense IAB, but the filter needs to come down. It`s the modern day equivalent of book burning almost. Just childish to pretend that words are magical spells that shoot out of your mouth and murder people...
You don`t. It`s an important part of history, and should never be forgotten or taken away. The only reason to keep giving the word power is if you enjoy the benefits it gains you. In other words, exploiting the suffering, pain and death of all those who died as slaves for you own personal gain.
To completely destroy the word, to once and for all remove every single ounce of power the word has, would, in my opinion, would be like removing the final symbolic shackle.
I was explaining you AIRtube that there`s a historical difference between white and black slaves to give him a deeper insight to the term of "n-word".
I personally feel like the word should be forgotten about...but then I ask, how can we just erase 200+ years of history? So I`m stuck. That`s my opinion, so now you can use an accusatory tone.
When white people were slaves, it was because you were a political prisoner or conquered by war. And white slaves` children weren`t born slaves...they were born free.
