Well, it wasn't originally, it was a descriptor. But it is most definitely a slur now regardless. It'd be nice if we could walk back the century of racism that created it but we can't. There's no distinction to be made anymore and no one is going to think "Oh, its okay he's just speaking Latin" if you sling the word at them. Anyone that tries that these days needs a smack.

It'd be like calling someone a faggot than saying you just meant they were a bundle of sticks.

It's a slur depending on how it is used and by whom and towards who. Which is kind of ridiculous. Same with the word you mentioned, fag; boy; etc.

Calling someone a coon is a racial slur, as it only has the definition and connotation of being a pejorative towards blacks.

It was derived from the latin word for black...

I have no clue. It's pretty stupid if you ask me. I mean they can say it and everything is all fine, but if any other "non-black" (I hate saying it like that) person says it, it's racist.

I feel I should've asked this before, by N word, do we mean nigger, nigga, or both?

Actually, that one has a number of different meanings and was even the nickname of a political party. So no, it was not solely a slur to start with either. And even as a slur, its used against different groups depending on the country in question.

A friend and I had a highversation about this not too long ago. It's all about the context, some non blacks use it to refer strictly to black people. In that case you may as well use the Hard R. To others, it's actually become a verbal filler for them, like when people say dude or bro. The negative connotation never even crosses their mind

Not always the case, you can try again though. I will say some black people will try and use it as bait to make a racist argument lol

Exactly, it depends on who is using it, even non blacks use it as bro, friend, homie, etc.

I dont say the N word. So I make it perfectly clear to the non-blacks in my circle to not try me. I think its ignorant and I better words in my vocabulary to say to my comrades of the same race.

It's funny, my lil brother dose not like some of the black rap mucic that i listen to becasue some of them say it like 200 times in one song. So he listens to alot of white rap lol. (we are white btw)
It is kind of funny though, like when us whities go to a rap concert we say it alot, rapping along to the songs.

But yeah as said, it's almost become a word like calling someone dude, or mate or homie i guess. (nigga not er).
Amoungst blacks i guess.

But here in Australia the Aboriginal people dont seem to say it. Its funny because they will say "brother" like American blacks and they also often say cuz, but not like the crips in America, they say it because they hang out with their cousins alot lol and i think they call everyone cuz, not just their cousins.
I guess the Poms(the English) must not have called them the N word? But there are some racist words for Aboriginies and they dont call each other that.

Dose not seem like the African immigrants that live here call each other that either. But maybe i just dont see it?


Abos and blacks arent the same race
