There are some people who complain that it is not fair that it is not socially acceptable for white people to use the "n" word. My question is, why on earth would you (general) want to use that word? What possible good do you (general) think could come about by the "n" word being socially acceptable for white people to use? Will it cure cancer? Fix the economy? Decrease crime? Make sex better?

I don't think the word serves any useful purpose when used by anyone, which is why it is perplexing to me when people whine about it not being fair it is not socially acceptable for white people to use it.

 In a way I understand where they are coming from..we hear fair, fair, fair or equal, equal, equal in everything these days. . except you can't do this..or you can't do that, that word can only be used by us, etc..

Certain words don't need to be used by anyone, imo.

IDK I'm just disgusted with ppl this week.. I'm sick and maybe a bit ornery..But c'mon ppl..why???

Can you tell my fever is 103? lol

I find it absurd even people try and say it's just another word. You know she looks over her shoulder before she says it.

I get that people think it's unfair. What I have yet to see anyone who whines about it is explain what good it could bring.

stupid thing to say even when the AAs use it. Makes one sound ignorant as hell

You bring up a good point, though. In what context would a white person want to openly say that word for?
