ok, i saw boston public last night and it was about how "******" is a really bad word. i was just wondering(since i'm malaysian and have NO CLUE whatsoever about american history)why its so bad. and why is it ok for blacks to call other blacks niggers and not whites.

i dont mean to offend anyone in here!i just wanted to know why its such a bad thing. it would be nice to hear it from real people instead of tv characters.

well a black to a black will usually say "nigga", which is a friendly term... they took a racial slur and turned it around... like the gays did with "queer".

but ****** has been seen as a racial slur since slavery first existed in the states. painful past. the word has finally been taken out of the dictionary, thou i dont think that will happen any matters. just an attempt to cover up the dirty past.

LOL SJW! My mom told me that last week she was driving and she was in traffic and some guy tried to cut her off, but she would not let him, so he was stuck. He caught up to her, wound down his window and said to her, "Lady, you are a fucking bitch!" And my mom smiled, nodded, and said(very matter of factly) "yes, I know I am!" LOL. She had me laughing as she told me that.

lol saz!i get your point, but being called a bitch and a nigga is two different things. because, according to boston public, it has a whole different connotation when a white person says it, even if they arent racist. i just want to know what this word really means and how it came about and why its so offensive.

btw, SJW, you're a total bitch! :p :devil: LOL!but u know i luv ya! :kiss: :angel:

[email protected]!!! go keiths momma, its ur birthday! :D

Veronica....i know but u get my point right? being called a nigga by a nigga.....wheres the insult??? :confused: like DL said its used on friendly terms

if a white person says "nigga" its either as an insult, or someone trying to be smart (ie "whassup my nigga") which is just as insulting....

i get the point, but WHY is it insulting?whats the real meaning of the word?
i'm not trying to be smart or anything ok, its just that when i saw the show esterday, it was hard to come to a decision whether the teacher(white man who discussed the word ******) should be fired or not.

well ****** and nigga are two different things really

of course its a word for a black person....but ****** is basically a racial slur (like spic, wop, paki etc) while nigga is used in songs ("aint no nigga like the one i got"-Foxy Brown and Jay Z ;))

i dont know how else i can explain it :confused:
