    I caution you that you're not supposed to use it. It's their generational trauma and their way of dealing with it.


    I would never call someone that word but again I find it more than odd that the word is so controversial, so divisive, so laoded that I cant even use the word on the forum apparently in an informative sense but I hear it being bandied about in Brooklyn the same way I would hear people use the word bro in South Africa. Either the word is the equivalent of an atomic bomb or its not. Again its not that I never swear but I wouldnt drop the f-bomb infront of kids, at work and def not at customers.


    The meaning of words can change based on who is saying it and who it is being said to. For instance, if you call your friend a dumbass while joking around, as opposed to calling a random person a dumbass for rear-ending your car - its the same thing, just without the generational baggage.

    And to be clear, that word said with a hard R means a very different thing than the word said without an R at all.

    I'd also like to point out that many of these people's parents and grandparents lived through the Jim Crowe era, that many of them have generational memories of being actual slaves, and that this exact same discussion happens in that community of PoC pretty regularly.

    The simple answer is: because of history, that word has a different meaning when said by a white person.

    :rolleyes: Either a word is fit for everyone to use, or no-one. Segregating language leads to segregating people, not bringing them together.

    I'm happy to never hear it again.

    End of.


    People that have uninformed opinions on things they don't care to actually understand is messing with my grove.

    The Old Testament is not apocrypha, itís as canon as biblical canon can get



    I'd not heard of the series, or apocrypha. I google image search'd Apocrypha and it comes up with a ton of books just like the one I drew, except with the word 'apocrypha' on them.
