Ppl say strange things to me

Im riding with a friend of a friend. Me and her are getting to know each other. She is telling me about how she grew up poor, dad in prison, etc etc...then she said she never said the n word. And I am like WTF does that mean?

I just okay and went to the party but can anyone fill me in on what she or that meant? lol She is a white girl...I have never had anyone say a statement like that to me.

  • I think she just associates that kind of language with low class she didn't have the best life, but that is no excuse to grow up with hate and no education.

  • I agree, she might of just been tring to say, no mater how she grew up she still has strong value about racism.

  • Agree also with previous posters. In our area, middle class is very diverse but poor seem to have that "stay with their own kind" mentality
