    Don't liberals argue that all speech is legitimate and that our founding forefathers created the 1st amendment to defend unpopular speech?


    On the other hand, I do understand why black men are trying to reclaim the word, and to put some neutral/positive meaning into some of it's usage amongst themselves.
    That is a load of crap hypocrite excuse. IF you do not like the word then do not use it other words do not bitch or scream hate speech just because other people use the word.
    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Blacks and whites get along better in the South than they do in the North. We are actually friends who get mad at each other and fight and go to weddings together and baby sit for each other. A lot of yankees have never even met a black person.

    Dude, I'm from the South.
    I was born here, my family's from here, we've been here for centuries.
    We owned slaves.
    I know perfectly well how "blacks and whites get along in the South".

    And they're making a big mistake by doing that. All you then see is others who enjoy the idea of calling black people by that name say "see? they do it so why can't we?"

It is hypocritical for race parasites like Jessy Jackson or Al Sharpton to bitch about white people using the the word nigger when black people use it all the time.They need to shut the hell up. The oh they are just taking the power of hate out the word is a load of crap and a hypocritical excuse. If you think it is racist offensive and all kinds of other **** then not only would you not tolerate people of other races using the word, you yourself wouldn't use word yourself nor would you tolerate people in your own race using the word.
    Yeah, the gays never took an insult like "queer" and made it their own.

    He used "Tu quoque" rather than the free speech fallacy, but you did call it.

    "one can not consider calling a black person a "nigger" to be racist" ... what exactly are you asking here. Do you mean that a person who uses the word "nigger" must be racist?

    I'd say so. The word is negative and based on a characteristic of a whole group and not the individual.

    It's not illegal to say it, it will just get your ass kicked.

    No one is saying you can't use the word, they are saying it communicates racial hatred, and if said in front of the wrong people they likely issue an ass kicking. Put feel free to say it no one will arrest you.

    It's a pejorative and derogatory term that no one should use anymore, including blacks.
