    To be fair, I know some conservatives who freak out when they hear it too. In either case, however, "not freaking out" is something that has to be taught. The idea that one always has to be offended when hearing it is a learned response that I think is hard to break since not reacting "appropriately" (i.e. getting offended) signals approval of its use to a lot of people. It's just like people who can never walk away from a conflict because they think they have to react whenever an insult is thrown out. That's a hard habit to break.

    My point exactly. So why do blacks insult each other, and get a pass for doing it?

    correct, but after a dozen of so generations, you'd think people would just be "americans". like I said, most of the blacks in the US today have zero cutlural ties to africa other than the fact that their ancestors nearly 200 years ago came from there.

    The same reason it's okay for me to call my brother stupid, but not okay for you to do it.

    It's going to take some time as they are easy to visually distinguish. It is definitely heading that direction. Things have changed on that front just in my lifetime, and by quite a bit.

    Oddly, after the one racial incident I saw when I was in the navy, it was a black guy who basically said the same thing, his point being why would you give some one saying that any kind of power over you, which is exactly what you are doing when you react.

    I will say it was 2 white guys who had to be held back from kicking the ass of the guy who called the guy he was pissed that. I will also admit that I do react, though I try and contain it.

    when this song came out, the PC left went nuts even though Patti Smith was hardly a conservative. She of course was as progressive as they came once being the lover of bisexual artist Robert Mapplethorpe (RIP-AIDS) and later the wife of MC-5 guitarist (the MC-5 was allied with the black panther party)



    reactionary politically correct dweebs couldn't figure out that Patti was saying that "nigger" meant outcast and there was nothing racially derogatory about what she sang about.

    so CONTEXT is everything. I remember as a 18 year old walking into an Italian-American shop in New Haven and watching a 70 something shopkeeper chasing out a would be shoplifter and looking at me saying "god damn niggers steal like crazy" now that certainly was derogatory. On the other hand I remember playing a pick up game a couple months later and dunking on one of my black buddies and that night hearing from another guy (hispanic black) laughing over the "white dude from ohio dunking on a couple of the niggers" far different meaning.

    and I also have seen the term used as a general term of contempt from even black cops

    Re: The Tabooed N-Word

    When I was in the military I had a buddy of mine who was in line at the chow hall. A short black GI walked up and moved right in front of him in line. My buddy's first reaction was to bark out "Hey little nigger, the line forms back there."

    The black GI immediately turned around to face my buddy and say "What you call me?" He then looked over at a nearby table where sat another black GI over 6 feet tall and fairly built.
    He went over to the sitting GI and said,"Did you just hear what that white guy called me, he called me a nigger."

    My buddy thought "oh here we go".
    But to everyone's surprise the sitting GI looked up at him and said, "Well, maybe you are a nigger." The little black GI muttered to himself and went to the back of the line.
    My buddy got his tray and came out and sat next to the black sitting GI. They had a good chat and laugh.
