    I hardly ever use it. If I do it's in a joking manner and only among people who I know will not be offended. I never use it in a racist manner, and even when joking it's something that I say extremely infrequently.

    Re: The Tabooed N-Word

    I picked never only because it is the closest one to the truth. The absolutely only time I use it is when I am telling someone about it being used by someone else or somewhere else. Usually I actually do refer to it as the n word. I have no need for that word or the c word. They are not a part of my normal vocabulary. They are used less often than antidisestablishmentarianism, but generally in the same way, which would be a repeat of someone else using it and not used in its own context.

    On the other hand PC is a attempt to control peoples boorish behavior. The bottom line in my point of view, PC just makes people fake. If some one has something to say, then say it. The ultra right/ultrleft/Donald Duck/it has nothing to do with it, it has a lot to do with some one telling me what I can and can't say.

    A nigger is a nigger--white, black, read, yellow, or otherwise--and I think we need to stop dancing around the word like it's an actual, "taboo". The day we do that, is the day we get miles ahead in race relations in this country.

    Actually, they don't. It's rarely used anymore except on BB when people want to forward a racist attitude. You never here "PC" used in conversation anymore. The concept of politically correct is stupid to begin with.

    But first and foremost I am a freedom loving American and a strict conservative when it comes to the constitution. Everything we need in life and the pursuit of it is already written into the constitution for all men and women. The constitution serves all regardless of what party one a affiliated with, the one thing that bothers me today is that we are trying fix something that really isn't broken, and because of it we find ourselves dying within.

    I tend to think of "PC" as the same as the "race card". The two terms are most often used by people who are unwilling to take responsibility for their own behavior.
