But what about the A-word, the B-word, the D-word, the E-word, the F-word, the G-word, the H-word, the I-word, the J-word, the K-word, the L-word, the M-word, the O-word, the P-word, the Q-word, the R-word, the S-word, the T-word, the U-word, the V-word, the W-word, the X-word, the U-word, and the Z-word? Shouldn't they all be discused?

And while we're at it, what about ?

VV @Jake_Justice: You've forgotten the "J-word" or is it a Canada-specific cuss?

"Jingerbritzen" Does it slip past the IAB filter?

DromEd,
I understand your point but, based on the history behind the words, I can't agree. The term "ni@@er" has been used for so many years to denote someone of such low class, just on the basis of skin color, that he was only worthy to be a slave and of less value than the livestock. The term "cracker" denoted a person of higher status - the boss, the whip-"cracker". It's demeaning because it really means that the person is someone who values another person less solely because of his skin color.

DromEd, no the comparison is not the same. The words and associated groups are what's important, their majority/minority status, that's what gives the power, not the specific individuals using it. At all. So, no, any individual white man stealing from any individual black man is not more of a relative problem than the other way 'round. But, yes, whites as a group discriminating against blacks as a group *is* worse than blacks discriminating against whites because of the power of the numbers, history, the system, our society, just about everything. Sure, there are exceptions for individual anecdotes, but not in the overall.

I actually saw parts of the show, and they definitely said the word. They also had flash cards with the -er and -a versions of the word, so this caption is a fail.

SmagBoy1, by that logic if a white guy steals from a black guy it's worse than if a black guy steals from a white guy.


As an aside. Up until the Z trial the only time I can really remember ever hearing the term cracker was as a kid watching Sanford & Son and The Jefferson's.

When a member of the majority of people uses a derogatory term about a member of the minority that highlights that minority status (in other words, talking about race, gender, sexual orientation, etc.), of *course* it's more offensive, worse, more bone-headed and wrong than if a member of the minority says something about the majority.

If you can't figure that out, perhaps you should excuse yourself from voting and concentrate on breathing.

I think I mentioned it once before, but I said nigga once and a black girl wanted to fight me right there in the Denny's. Can't even say nigga, the calmer, more everyday, friendlier version, which is exactly how I had meant it!

Who cares who is offended by this. They are WORDS. If you get offended by a word, then you have problems.

The very phrase "N-word" is juvenile. That's how children talk -- "Oooh, he said the N-word." When adults become afraid of words, and sound like schoolchildren because of it, communication is dead. If you're having a mature discussion on race/language, simply say what you mean. Growing up Italian-American in the 60's, I heard the word "guinea" often enough. And I would feel like an idiot going on about "the G-word" if I were speaking about it to another adult. Again, say what you mean. Reasonable adults will know you're simply referencing an unsavory word for discussion's sake. The others, the professional offense-takers, can go back to their coloring books.

Which is worse?

Whichever one the white guy said, of course. (and should a black guy say it, not a problem, it's only racist when a white guy says it.)

Why is one worse than the other? Can't they both be just, words?

They are both words. Black people choose to be very sensitive to the word ni@@er. White choose to not be offended by cracker. Simple as that.
I don't care if blacks were once enslaved. That was along time ago, and not my problem. It's definitely not an excuse for a racist double standard where blacks can say what they want but whites are not.

Then again, you've got to factor in both the P-word and Q-word, which both signify cultural shifts. With the E-word having undergone a metamorphosis in recent months, that leaves only the K-word and X-word as viable alternatives. Conversely, the H-word has been used in place of the M-word in some areas, thus altering the demographics even further.

George Carlin, come back!
