    That's not at all what I'm saying. It's, "taboo", because of political correctness, it's, "offensive", because black people don't want to be thought of as, "niggers". They didn't used to, at least.

    You know that poltical correctness has run amuck when, "niggardly", is hailed as a racial slur.

    Context is critical, so as I'm da'wite maAn, I only say it in the racist jokes which include it, or when referring to certain friends in the familiar who first called me 'nig'.

    Even then timing can be key. If my battle who's going though a divorce calls me because he needs to be serious and talk about real ****, even if I know it's him calling, if I greet with "whaz up nig", that tells him that I'm not very serious about life right now and it's probably not the best time to look for a solid battle to talk to.

    So, it's a art.

    In my country there are hardly any black people. So, the connotation is quite different in comparison with the US, e.g., meaning that "nigger" is not insulting. It just means "human with black skin". I guess the name has something to do with the Niger river and Nigeria. I have had a Nigerian colleague once and I must say he was a very decent man.

    Re: The Tabooed N-Word

    I rarely use it, and typically when I use it its in a manner of reference. IE, if I'm singing along with a song (Lets say "Party Up" or MSI's "Bring the Pain"), talking about a comedy routine, etc. The other times it tends to be from a more debate/discussion oriented avenue, such as discussing the use of the word and its impacts or other such things.

    I never use it, except on the internetz occasionally.

    I don't use it, because it serves no purpose. I can use the term black, which won't offend anyone. The ones who get offended by the use of black are idiots anyway.

    It also has nothing to do with the political correctness. PC is to shut down non-racist opinons the political elites dislike. For instance a person who disagree might lose his friends, his job, banned from speaking in public, beaten up or sent to prison. They also sometimes try to reduce vocabulary to make it harder for political opponents to express their opinions. This is a real problem in the western world.

    However, the n-word got nothing to do with PC. If you are not a racist, then you are not expressing any opinions. Also they are not limiting our vocabulary, since we can use "black", "colored", and "afro-american".

    I was in my 20's before I realized what he meant. I learned that there are alotta niggers in the world and they ain't all black.

    It's the niggers in the world that make life tough for the rest of us black folks. Every time we get something good going, a nigger comes along and ****s it up for us. Or, some white Liberal do-gooder.
    Aren't you simply redefining the word to suit your personal views? Much the same way that you or others may accuse the "PC" crowd of making all sorts of words up for black people hoping to find one that isn't offensive.

    Imagine two black guys, one guy is acting in a way that you describe as a "nigger" and the other is acting in a way you find acceptable or in a non-nigger way. Now, if I were a non-black racist / BNP / Nazi or KKK person - do you think I'd think both black guys were niggers or just one of them? I find it strange that people think they will be seen any different by those who would use that word with real intent simply by their actions: the point of calling someone "nigger" is as a racial epithet, no matter how well behaved the victim.

    I think the word is very racist so I do not use it. To each of their own.
