Well I feel sorry for the english teacher that tought you how to spell the word. xP

Anyway, I've encountered Racism too, Since I'm not exactly white.. or christian. It really sucks and its hard to get past. >.> Still, You get through life. I'm not sure if Obama could do it, he might make an influence on others that black people aren't that bad.

I dunno. >.>

Why does the use of the 'N' word only bother you when white people use it? It's a terribly offensive word and thanks so to fantastic civil rights leaders it had become a "bad word."
But suggesting that only white people can't call you that seems to demean what African Americans have fought for - especially in the later half of the 20th century.
What if a Latino called you that? Or a Native American? Yes it's still a racist country, but until you recognize what actions facilitate discrimination and racism - it will continue. Not by people like me, but people who just can't or won't understand.

Lol, its not that. But people expect you to spell the simplest of words, or you kinda seem like a moron. xP

Yeah, Discrimination is pretty harsh. Blacks give it a name for themselves. Being Gangsta is their home-life. They chose to be rather more rough and rude than anything else.

Onward, the "N" word is used by just about every kid in my school with a bit of a crowd. Blacks say it to each other, Latinos even though their brown. Only when whites and some latinos say it its considered racist, but Heck I know if someone in my school said "Sup Mah N_____" No one would care. As long as the speaker wasn't white.

Bah. I don't believe in all this PC bull. The "N" word isn't a bad word. No word is really a bad word, it's only the connotation that makes them socially unacceptable. The historical connotations associate it with racism, but no one alive today ever owned slaves. No one alive today was ever a slave or ever MET a slave, at least not from this country. Why is it that we are required to be so careful with our choice of words? We shouldn't have to worry about offending anyone, and the fact that we do only proves that racism still exists - and the MOST racist people are the ones who believe they are being "discriminated" against.

Yeah, I guess. But not all the times. I would knwo. >.< also, your right, not all words are bad. But I'm not going all out with that, since, I'm pretty sure the "F" word is pretty socially unacceptable, at least, when your in the real world.

Its not about slaves, since, the N word was far after slavery. I'm pretty sure you can meet someone who's been discriminated against.

Look, most of the reason there is racism in America is because of stereotypes, both personal and those presented by the media. I mean, if I showed someone a picture of a young black man and asked him where this person lives, he probably would say "South Central". Why? Because when they think of South Central, they think of black and hispanic gangs in a turf war. It's just sad because I have too many friends that could be in the picture in my analogy.

Honestly I don't think that there is much racism anymore!
I mean the only people that are racist are the ones that are scared to change or are use to the old times.
Society today believes in equal rights and I think that everybody is treated the exact same.
Having a black president just shows you how blacks are just as equal as a white president they can express their views in the exact same way as whites so I think that the racism is really really low and may not even occur in a handful of states.
So in all reality racism isn't anything to be scared about you could just be over reacting bc your teacher thinks that you can't spell and you think that they're just being racist but in reality you just can't spell!

Its still racism if a black person calls another black person a N****. So weather ur hurt because u feel that only black people are entitled to say that word you are wrong. Im not a racist but i find it really disrespectful when another black person calls me a n****, im not a slave and i never was and neither were you. Its not like im going to call an English person a limey or an Italian a wop. Black people in general are putting racism on themselves by calling each other a n**** when there not, its just stupid(rap music doesnt help). I dont se white people going around and sayin "whats up ma skin head", or "yo sup whity" like f*** have some respect for yourselves.

Words have more power than you would think. In the U.S., elections, the canidates give a speech, and they try to convince the viewers to vote for them. so words have power jrvc92 ( and sometimes the canidates haveno political experiance so you get the point with my example)...(hopefully)
