    I hangout mostly with young ladies between the ages of eighteen and twenty four. Because they like to do what I like to do. And ladies my age have all settled down and are not into what I am. So these ladies are always texting me. And most of them call me "nigga" or use that word somewhere in text. And I have a myspace page. And I see people (white) in open forums posting that same word in various types of spellings. I am thirty nine when I was younger you had to be black to use that word. And then it was said to another black person. I find the word disrespectful no matter how you spell it. I am polite when asking my lady friends not to call me that. It is just so freely used now by all races from what I see. My question is this progress?

    Good question you pose and the answer is no, that isn't progress, its the condition thats indicative of the deterioration of society and morals. The Bass' father said back in his days as a kid you would never see women on TV in their panties because it was considered as vulgar and pornographic, today its seen as normal and as a sign that society has "progressed" from being backwards and closed minded. The same can be said about use of the N word, it has always been bad, no matter who uses it.

    The infamous "N" word... If you follow Chris Rock, the comedian, you will see him use the "N" word very often. If you happen to have some racist as friends, you will hear the "N" word very often. There is a double standard when it comes to using the "N" word. If you're black it is generally accepted that their use of the word is just fine and dandy. If you are anything other than black, especially white, use of the "N" word will create an outrage and if you are a well-known or famous person, you will obtain great wrath from the likes of Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton on tv, who, by the way, are only trying to get their face on tv and could care less about any real issues. So, in the case of the "N" word, what's good for the goose is not good for the gander. In simpler terms, what's good for the ****** is not good for the cracker.
