    I don't get that, either, unless they really want to stay as divided as many of them are acting. Maybe one of our resident persons of color can explain???

    Because we can. You can go into public and call blacks, *******. It's not illegal.

    Chris Rock explained it best...


    Two fat girls can joke about being fat and it is no big deal
    If a skinny girl jokes about them being fat......its just plain mean

    Two poor people can laugh about how poor they are
    But if a rich person does it......it's just plain mean

    Same goes for blacks calling each other n*gger

    Thanks for the laugh! It's an "ethnic thing" as well as context being king. An Italian guy can call a friend of his a "fucking wop" or a "fucking Guinea, Dago, or Wop" but let someone outside of that ethnic group call them that amd there's a problem!

    It's a term of endearment between them.

    I think it's a filthy word that shouldn't be used by anyone. Wipe it from the lexicon, it won't hurt anything.

    Afros can say and do things that whites are not allowed to because no one thinks their species has any ability to act like human beings.
