When you write N****as, you put the word "Niggers" in the readers head.
That's what writing a word IS.
You write "N****as" and i go "oh he means niggers". You're making ME said it in my head.
Why don't you fucking write it and take responsibility.

Yes, because only niggers are allowed to talk about niggers. And only faggots are allowed to talk about faggots...

#1 I'm not getting into that debate I'm sure someone else will though.

This sketch has been around for some time now and I have to say it's absolutely brilliant. Of course it works just the same for any nationality black while yellow green 'Green!!? okay maybe not green but wherever there is a side of society that will rob you, stab you, sell drugs etc this can be applied. I'm not scared of standing outside a cashpoint at 2am with a bank manager behind me in the queue it's the group of skinheads with hate tattooed on this foreheads that worry me. 8-)

I have no problem with the word 'nigger' or 'nigga' . Words commonly referred to as profane do not bother me. Replacing letters with asterisks however, does irritate me. For example when I see the word 'f**k' I immediately think of the word 'fuck' of course, which is. naturally, what the writer intended, though he or she lacks the courage to present the word in its full form.

@ #3: Who the hell do you think you're fooling? You're looking over your shoulder at 3 AM in fear of japanese or norwegians to rob you? Get real and lose the politically correct drivel. No one is buying and you just look like a fool.

#7 The only one on this debate who is looking like a fool is you Bucko!

I'm a little confused as to what you are suggesting? If you are saying that the only people in society that I and everyone else should be worried about are Black then not only is that a really stupid observation it is also inaccurate and very racist. Take a look at some of the members of the Nation Front (maybe you are a member?) take a look at some of the idiots that support certain football teams take a look at gang members (The none black ones). I repeat just for your benefit that I would be as worried about having any of those behind me at a cashpoint at 3am. ::(|)

Yet # 5. thefox you say you [have] no problem with the word 'nigger' or 'nigga'. Ok. So you feel comfortable writing and using this word – does this extend to discourse? Do you feel comfortable saying it? To others? In the presence of black / brown people?

A question to all.

Where do you personally draw your ‘comfort line’ with words such as nigger, faggot etc? When would you not feel comfortable using / saying them? Does this extend outside the anonymity of the internet? And if not – why not? Thefox may have no problem with using this word but replacing letters with ** sets him/her off? I imagine he/she is not alone in this. The semantic content, which is to demean and degrade or offend remains regardless as thefox pointed out with f*ck. I find it troubling that some apparently have ‘no problem with the word 'nigger' or 'nigga' – we should all have some trouble, pause or concern for any use of that word no?

#11 Whilst in total agreement with you there is still no explanation as to why it is perfectly ok under any circumstance for a Black man to use the word any time he/she wants to and no offence is taken.
I have said this before and will say it again.
Now i do not hate any race but for this explanation, I can for instance say i hate the French, I hate the Aussies, I hate the Polish, I hate Canadians and that is acceptable and the only reason it is acceptable is because i am White and people perceive those races to be white but holy shit if i say i hate the Turkish or Pakistanis then everyone calls me a Racist as i can hate any perceived White race but not a colored.

#12. Scotsman50 - I respectfully disagree with you. There is a very good explanation if one views the roots of racism as being anchored in power (as in cultural, political, economic power etc.) and as a way to help organize, sustain and perpetuate a systemic order whereby those in power and authority in a society use the sustained degradation of the ’others’ in order maintain and preserve their status and dominance. This starts at the most basic level by conceptually and semantically framing the ‘other’ in derogatory terms (i.e. racist categorizations), as sub human, less than, inferior and not worthy of equal status, membership, rights and thus role and agency. This creates a the situation that you have observed with frustration whereby it is ok for a black man (for example) to use this word because he doesn’t have access to that power (power being institutional power) and thus it loses its force within that community and in fact, over time, it can come to symbolize membership and solidarity and even identity through semantic reappropriation. Yes, members of the black community have taken ownership of a word whose base etymology stems from a derogatory slur designed to humiliate and remind them that they are lesser people. If you are in group the idea is that you will share the same experiences of having to live in and with black skin and all of those implications and presuppositions with respect to IQ, ability, intent, threat… etc. It is not an equal playing field. Just let me ask – is there any equal slur for all white people? Not the cultural slurs (e.g. Irish, Polish etc. etc.) but a term as equally powerful and degrading and all-encompassing as that word for all ‘white’ people? I would argue no. No offense is usually taken when said in group, the other black person doesn’t have the inherent power to make use it in the way a white person can. But this rule clearly does not apply to whites addressing blacks thus the inequality you commented on. And yes, anticipating push back, black people can be rich and powerful but they will still suffer the same suspicion and harm when addressed by this word. Barack Obama was the US president, an intellectual, and the most powerful leader it the world for 8 years but to some he was still just another (insert slur).

Hey Geekster , do you think you could add a "comedy" category to the list? I think it is really needed. :)

#10 in the context of a discussion saying certain black people cause problems is not racist (see below). It's not a requirement to qualify a discussion with 10 minutes of add-ons of every knucklehead in every race.

From my link at #9 above, they hit well above their weight to be of concern. When I walk around my community I rarely am concerned about the people around me. When I walk around Los Angeles, I am. That's not racism, that's being pragmatic.

rac·ist /noun
a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another.
