People spent years trying to get respect and get rid of the word, and now suddenly n*gger is a positive word meaning buddy, friend, or pal to teenagers?

This is not sudden. It's true and sad but it has been going on for a very long time.

 Huh? I mean, among some of the people of the black race, it has been a "term of endearment" for a long time. Do you mean like, all teenagers or primarily black ones?

Last I heard it was still offensive for a white person to say it. but a black person could.

 My teenager told me that it is common now because this generation, black and white have taken the power and negative connotation away by using it as a term of endearment. I'm not saying it is right or wrong......just telling you what my teen said when I asked  about it.

I still hate that word and I'm sick of others telling me that I use the word when I don't just because I'm black.

I think it is a generation thing as well.  However, it wont be said around this house!  I wish ppl would have more respect of the generation that came before them that was affected negitively by the word.

I have only spanked my daughter once in her life and I don't plan to do it again... that said, if she uses any racial slur and I hear of it I'm going to tan that ass.
