    I was giving the underlying symbolism of why there's a double standard. What you're illustrating is that Blacks tend to point out differences and push White people away (by using racial slurs) more than Whites push Blacks away. That's a separate issue.

    She really wasn't fired. They just aren't renewing their contract.

    I wasn't aware she was being charged with a crime.

    Exactly. 'Nigger' means black, and that's why it's ok for blacks to say it but not other races. Black people, by virtue of being black, have an inherent legitimacy to use the word where non-blacks cannot, because they are not black. When a Black person says 'nigger' to another Black person, they are pointing out a likeness between them, bringing them closer. When a White person says 'nigger' to a black person, they are pointing out a difference between them, pushing them away. All instances of anyone using the word in any context boil down to that: is the speaker pointing out a likeness, or a difference.

    This is not a double standard but a universal rule which applies to any attribute the speaker of the word personally possesses. Gays can call each-other fag and that is in no way offensive because it's a term of endearment pointing out a likeness, but if a hetero says it, that's pointing out a difference, so that's rude.

    We generally only see exceptions to this rule among close friends where the issue of race has been transcended.
    I definitely agree with what you stated, however, I would just like to say that we call each other niggas, rather than the -er ending as it is taking a pejorative term and giving it a new meaning amongst ourselves.

    LOLZ! And you call yourself a 'progressive,' but actively argue to use racial slurs. Funny!
