    So a white person saying nigger on a message board equals systematic racism convicting them of crimes in a court of law because of their race?

    Exactly.

    It is the EXACT type of baseless accusations of racism I am talking about.

    Its true.

    In fact... I am hurt that Black people get Chicken, Watermelon, and Collards..

    I grew up on those things.... those are SOUTHERN comfort foods.... not "Black people food".

    I'm from the south and I didn't grow up hearing it either. The "N" word was considered coarse and vulgar.

    Yes, they are. I would be happy to feast on those things any day.

    Thanks for speaking up. Wouldn't it be nice if we returned to considering the word crass and vulgar?

There is a certain sect of the white (usually heterosexual, Christian, male) population who seem to willfully prevent themselves from understanding that the white experience of race is often dramatically different from the experience of racially marginalized groups. Then, when that sect is confronted with someone who sheds light on one of those different experiences, they cry "racist" and "but what if a white guy said it" instead of actually doing a critical analysis of what was said. It's unbelievable. Educate yourselves.
    And some minorities like Vietnamese boat people come here and seem to be able to assimulate and build new lives from nothing.

    No it isn't. It's just the bastardization of the word 'negro.' In the south there are a LOT of words that are not pronounced in the king's English. That is just one. I could give you a list. When I finally got the opportunity to get an education I became VERY careful what words I used because many that I grew up with were not the correct pronunciation and would get you laughed at. I never gave up my 'expression's though, nor would I give up the accent. Some things are not negotiable.

    As are Hispanics who aren't even tolerated simply BECAUSE they are Hispanic.

    I heard it quite a bit but usually from people who were into rap, white or black. I have probably heard the black variant (no R at the end) come out of more black mouths than white ones in my life.
