My mom uses it, and I get on her case every time. She tries to justify the use of it by saying "But white people can be 'n' too!" My grandpa also uses it to refer to black people. I'm ashamed of it, but he's in his 80's and he grew up in a very different world. I can't even bring myself to say it out loud, it just sounds so dirty to me, and I can cuss up a storm if I need to.Answer Question
Oh yeah! Around here is rather prevalent! I hate it. My BIL uses it all the time! I live in an area where you still have Black neighborhoods and white neighborhoods... It's a cluster of small towns and out of the 5 towns 2 are around like 95% black and the others are all 95% white. The black people in the area use the word CONSTINTLY!!! And the majority of older whites (30+) do as well. My generation is really the only one that tries to censor... The rest just don't care. It's really sad!
**On a side note, this area also has it's own KKK chapter - largest in the state... So, again, words like that are common. I really hate living in an area where color comes first, but that's just the way these small towns are. If you aren't the white Christian daughter of a hard working good named man, you are seen as trash... It's a fight for everyone!
