I remember when I was racist. I uttered the N word many times. What? I was in primary school at the time. If you don't want your kid to be called an N word you teach him not to harass the only Asian kid in school with pseudo Chinese.

Yep. From Kindergarten to 4th grade, I was raised in a small town of only white folks. Also, my step-father was very racist.

In the 5th Grade, I moved to a much larger town that was roughly 60% black folks and 40% white folks. I learned very quickly that the N-word was not a very nice word. Also learned that being punched by a guy twice your size for saying that word is not very fun.

The move was a little bit of a culture shock, but it did me good. I'm not racist, now. Don't really think I ever was... think I was just a kid who didn't know anything different than what I was told.

The word really irritates me, now. There are a few people around here that still use it casually. They tend to have a narrow vision of the world, in general, not just about race. I try to avoid them.

I probably did and didn't even know it was a racial slur. For example, some people would say things like "you gypped me!" when they felt they'd been swindled or stolen from. It turns out this is a racial slur for gypsies. There are so many more like that.

Well, even though I was "eligible" to utter the n word without getting the shit beaten out of me, and even if plenty of my black friends in secondary school did, in that way that they do, like a greeting or exclamation or whatever, I still never really did. I'd say even as a black individual you'd need a certain level of street cred to say it and not sound weird.

As for any other slurs, nope, never... as far as I can remember.

Funny the n word as you say is not a racist word at all it is a magical mystical word that can be used in any situation. I use it 5 to 10 times a day! Respect the n word.

Pretty much all of them. The only one I can write on this forum without self censorship is "cracker". Us white folk are the only race without a super offensive racial-slur that's perceived as being as bad or worse than cursing. Thanks white privilege

Same. I think alot of people feel the same way as me when I say that I distinguish between what I call a n***er, and a black person. To me that racial slur denominates the worst of their culture such as the gangbangers, hoods, welfare abusers, etc, whereas there are plenty of cool black people that I respect.

Yeah. My wife's cousin dates almost only black men, because that's what she's attracted to, but I've heard her call a piece of crap the N-word, once. So, it isn't like it's about racial hate.... sometimes people can just fit the bill.

Personally, I still won't do it, because I'd rather elaborate than sum it up in with one word.... and I have an aversion to the word itself.

Sure. Not that I've ever used anything like it to be verbally racist while being serious about it. I say it a lot, but I believe how you use words is more important than what words you use.
