  • No, but I feel like it. There's this nasy girl at my daughters school who wants to attack her and bulliles her all the time. My daughters been to the counselor about her, but nothing seems to get done. I think that that's and absolute sickening and hateful word but I can't stand this big nasty girl.

  • Never! It's ignorant, rude, disrespectful and most of all RACIST! I would be reporting that student to the principal!!!

  • No. My husband is black. MY KIDS ARE BLACK. Omgosh its a horrible word.

    Plus, the meaning the of the word "Nigger" is a lazy person. If it was used that way, it wouldnt be so bad, but people say it to be hateful towards african americans.

  • No. Never. My kids usually don't say "bad" words, but if they were to drop an F bomb I wouldn't be upset (although I hope they don't do it in front of my husband's grandmother... LOL) but this word is just not allowed in our house, and I won't let anyone say it -- or any other racial slur -- around my kids. Ever. Not without getting an earful for me. Honestly I'm not big on punishment but if a child says it to another kid, I think they should be suspended.

  • i grew up in a house where it was used alot & so yes, i have called an ass hole black dude a nigger, but it's about the same as them calling us crackers or honey's or rednecks.... just something that comes out when you're mad... i don't say it anymore b/c i don't want my dd saying it

  • Never...I've had a black person call me a f-ing cracker though. I was 9 mos pregnant coloring on the sidewalk with my 2 toddlers when they walked by and said that. Completely unprovoked!

    I think it's terrible for anyone to call anyone else something horrible based on their appearances.
