My SO isn't racist by no means, and this I know because I know how he talks to people of different race, and how he talks about them. However, various members of his family like to use the N word to describe the african american race. I come from a family that has a lot of different races married into it. So to me, color and race should never be an issue. They say they aren't racist, but they use the term to describe a race, and I frankly don't like the word. So how do I at least get them to stop using it around me without being rude and causing riffs?

I'd just tell them how offencive it is and how ignorant it makes them sound, ridiculously ignorant!! As pnwmom said... I'd tell my kids, right in front of them how ignorant they are being. They should be ashamed of themselves.
