    Anyway, to be honest, I am surprised at the # of people who haven't heard it. Maybe it is just because I live in a southeastern state, but it just seems commonplace here.
    How odd. I lived in central Alabama when Obama was first elected and never heard anyone refer to him using that word. Maybe it's the people you choose to be around.

    Possibly - one of the times I've heard it came from a friend of mine. I know a couple of my friends here have some issues with race, and I generally don't talk politics with them because they are conservative and I am liberal. It doesn't usually work out.

    But, you know, even with people I don't know it can occur. It's when a normal conversation turns weird, because everyone leans in real close, and someone starts whispering some **** no one wants to hear.

    With the "uh" ending and pronunciation?

    Or with the traditional and apparently 1000X more offensive "er" ending and pronunciation?

    What about black kids calling white kids "niggah"?

    I get called "niggah" all the time by all of my black friends XD and I'm pretty damn white (75% European origins)!

    I find it harmless and so long as it is between friends who cares?

    There are situations when we can be formal and there are situations where we can be informal.

    I suspect that's the reason a lot of us come to this forum.

    There's a motive here. Be honest and tell us what it is.
    I think this is just intended to be a platform for people to claim that every single one of their conservative friends, family, and/or acquaintances use or have used the word with great regularity.

    Why can't you just take it at face value?

    No I have not heard anyone call the president a nigger. A friend of my mine did tell me a joke about Hallmark is coming out with an Barrack Obama christmas ornament.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The only "n" word my friends, family or co-workers have ever used to describe Barack Obama in my presence is "nitwit".
