sorry my causcasian breds, but why do some of your fellow people always try sooooo hard to be able to use that word... its like they want to spit in peoples face and get away with it
I wanna speak on this because I've given quite a bit of thought to why a lot of white people feel the need to be able to say the word.
I think white people wanting to say the word so badly really shows the depths of white privilege in the last 500 or so years (since the rise of Europe out of the Dark Age). The way I see it, when a white person gets mad about not being able to say that word, they're basically saying "what, I can't have something? You know I'm WHITE, right? You know I get everything I want, right?" This is a generalization of course, not every white person has every privilege, I grew up poor, for example. But even in my multicultural neighbourhood, I was still poor and white, whereas a lot of my friends were poor and minorities (this is also my problem with people like V-nasty saying "but I grew up in the hood so I can say it!" No, there is still differences). These white people can't stand the fact that there is something they can't have, and that, to me, says a lot about their state of mind. I truly believe that humans have a lot of commonality and connectedness and we need to realize this in order to flourish. However, not only is there also difference, but there has also been wars in the past based on difference (real or perceived) as well. This past has created cleavages, and I don't see the problem in saying, "I'm not gonna say that word because it was used in hurtful ways and is still hurtful today." I don't see the problem in saying, "I don't know what it feels like to be called that word, but if you say it's hurtful, I'll take your word for it." If you're a white person and you can't react this way, but instead get mad that there is one word, ONE WORD, you can't say, you need to take a look in the mirror.
Besides, after watching and reading a few things about the horrors of the transatlantic slave trade, as a white person, I never want to be a.ssociated with that word. I don't know why any white person would. That's just my two cents on the matter.
