Scruffypup saidDepends on what "n-word"
failscarf saidI wonder how much the n-word has been said. #GodOnlyKnows.
I wonder how many times the n-word has been said by Blacks versus Whites.
You don't find very many black people calling each other niggers.
I'm sure you don't see a difference though. Right?
Oh sure, I see the difference. "Nigga" is completely unrelated to "Nigger." But I think "the n-word" can be either.
Well yeah the n-word could be either but I tend to decouple it in this way:
Nigga - term of endearment used almost exclusively by black people
Nigger - hate speech used to degrade people of African decent, generally used by people not considered black.
If we tossed these separate phrases into the ol' stat machine you'd probably find more white people using the latter variant of the n-word. Though as it turns out.. we don't view the "n-word" in the same manner so none of this really matters. Blehh... well we've wound up needlessly off topic.
