    Oh come on, all the cool rock bands are implementing classical instruments now. We could feed it through a mic and add distortion and stuff. Trust me.

Somewhere around the mid 1800s it began carrying a negative connotation and it was replaced by the word 'Colored'. Because of the history of the word one can not consider calling a black person a 'nigger' to be racist. Do you agree?

    The derivation is probably from the Latin word, niger, which means black. Many slaves were imported from Nigeria and surrounding areas.

    They were very likely originally called "Nigers." But people misspell and misprounounce words all the time, and so the "N" word was born.

    Is it racist? I would say yes. But then look at the lyrics of many songs by black artists. Guess what word you find repeated over and over.

    In addition, many blacks consider "Negro" and "Colored" racist as well.
