Here's a question...


Why is it that the spell check can't figure out that I want to spell totally normal words, but If It sees me write

 Nugger (misspelling nugget, as in gold) It will ask me  if I was trying to spell 

N*gger...

I guess the racists need spell check too, lol? They generally aren't the brightest, so it makes sense.

I'm assuming you mean on your phone?

If so, probably because it recognizes it as ni**er. Which means it may be a word you use.

I'm not on my phone, I'm on a laptop . And No, I've never used (or typed) that word in a conversation.

It's a word. I don't understand why this word in the English language is so off limits.

You don't understand why it's abhorrent to use a word created to keep an entire race of people dehumanized in the eyes of the people murdering and beating them into slavery?

A word didn't do that, people did. There's many words that are meant to describe other races. Those are more acceptable to use. This one word is so agreguius that no one dare speak it. It's really stupid.
