questions regarding race

something happened last night and i wanna get as many peoples' views on it as possible

1) is the term "black bitch" racist? (no, it wasn't said to me )
2) if you're white, would you use the slur "n!gger" around black people, or at all? (no, this wasn't said about to me either)

thanks

1) Seems both racist and sexist to me.

2) *pass*

This is my reason too as I'm sure my post will be interpreted ambiguously. There are so many troublemakers as we all know.

The only reason anyone would post a thread asking these questions is to cause friction

I think so... why else would it be necessary to include "black" in there if it was not meant in a derrogatory manner?

I don't understand why anybody of any race would want to use that term, so there certainly isn't any excuse for a white person to be using it.

I think that statement is more appropriate to your contribution. But I don't want to get into a polemical discussion about race, so I'll say each to their own opinion. I've got my fingers burnt too often in the past.

Oh my lol...I hardly ever speak English in real life so I would never say ****** and I never heard somebody being called a 'black bitch' either (I do think it's racist though. Bitch is referring to a person. Black bitch is referring to black) but two nights ago I ordered a 'black bitch' at a coctail party. It was delicious Coke, rhum and lemonjuice
