I am not trying to start drama but I have a question. Last night my DH & I were in a bar playing pool and the DJ was playing hip-hop/rap music. i am curios why it's okay for the "N" word to be used in the "songs" and the young black men can call each other that word BUT if I, as a 52 yr old caucasian woman called one of them that word I would be considered prejudiced?

It is just wrong period. If you want the word going from our vocabulary then no one should say it. I can't justify the N word as a term of endearment---it is a vicious racial slur. I'm not going to let someone call me a bitch nicely for crying out loud. I don't find your post offensive in the least, but this is a now win no change situation. When the word was symbolically buried--the Detroit mayor used it to incite anger over his behavior. You can't use it when you want and tell others they can't. I would never use it, but to be gone with it---all races need to stop saying it, which sadly won't happen.
