Lame topic title, I know -_-

Anyway, why is it ok for black people to use the racist word beginning with "n" & it's not ok for white people too as people get offended? I could class that as racist if I wanted too.

So, yeah, discuss.

That's what i want to know.

Same in England but it's muslims saying the "P" word.

WTFs the P word?

Anyway, presumably as they will be insulting themselves, if you will, by using the word, while a caucasian person using the term is effectively an outsider insulting the race.

Don't be surprised if this topic is closed, for fear of a Flame-War.

I've always loved that word, "flame-war", sounds so epic.

I presume it's Paki. No offence to anyone. :o

Also, yeah.. What annoys me the most is that if a white person is racist to a black person it's all like "OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!" but if I black person is racist to a white person it's like, "Meh."

What the hell is that? Yeah, racism is bad. Bot it's not bad just one way, it's bad BOTH ways. :/

Probably because of the past of racism between white and black people, idc. But now everyone has equal rights, and everyone is (mostly) happy Smile.

True wait for the Second English Civil War.

As said by Cartman "Race war, come on people race war, *Five minutes later* Whites win race war.

It means nothing to call somebody of the same "race" a discriminatory word xD

It's like me calling Lewkie a Cracker. It has no meaning behind it. On the other hand, if a dark guy called me a cracker, I'd call him "a nice person."

But not really.

I love how the whole black and white racism argument is still going around but if I mention what its like still to be a woman in this day and age black or white Im just told to get back to the feckin kitchen and shut up winging.

The issue of gender is to me still a huge problem and we were victims of slavery too! Speak to the hand

Thanx to Craizen for the sig, love ya babe, Hubby for the avi.

ok not all black people call each other ****** lets get that straight.

secondly, I really dont think us as white people can complain over one word that we are not allowed to say considering we did much worse not too long ago.

thirdly, asif try to be black and call one a ******. negro please.

Well, just 50 years ago (possibly longer in other parts of the world), blacks were struggling to even be considered equivalent to white men. Now they can have something to their own, and it would simply be considered racist if said from a white boy.

But that's changing, because some white people like to think they're black or something...

And while we're on the topic, I'd like to migrate over to SuperCheats something that has been occurring on PxE for quite some time:

Stuff like calling a Mexican "Wetback" is very insulting, unless it`s another Mexican. But the history of white racism causes other races to be insulted more when it`s a white person. It`s the white people`s fault they carved that tenet into the minds of every single race in existence. It may not be completely justifiable, but it`s not going anywhere.

(I am a Mexican so to anyone else who is Mexican on this site please do not be offended, I`m not trying to be racist towards white`s either.)

It's entirely possible that, while these terms may once have been greatly offensive in any context, certain groups may have adopted them as a sort of self-depreciating humour. Kind of a great big in-joke, and you're not part of it. So when you try to force yourself in on their joke, they're understandably not happy.

Racist terms applied to a race that isn't Caucasian from a Caucasian or other separate race (although more so from a Caucasian) is more insulting as there's lots of degrading history behind the use of the word. However, if a Caucasian were to be called a 'honkytonk' (racist term used against us whities), they are unlikely to feel offended - the only thing that would pass through my mind if someone called me a honkytonk is "well, I guess I won't be making friends with them." I wouldn't feel insulted.

Racist terms between separate Caucasian countries why are directed at each other exist, but there isn't degrading history behind the meaning of the word, rather it's just an insulting term, and both parties are likely to use these terms against each other openly and equally, rather than when we consider other races.

As for why Blacks call each other the degrading term that is based on Negro, well I'd say CurryMonster's 'in joke' suggestion is as close as you can get.

"Fo shizzle ma nizzle" is a bastardization of "fo' sheezy mah neezy" which is a bastardization of "for sure mah *****" which is a bastdardization of "I concur with you whole heartedly my African american brother."

And that's how it happened.
