    The "N" Word

    3 Questions about the "N" word:

    1. Black people on PSU, do you use the "N" word? Do you agree or disagree with the thought that the "N" should stop being used?

    2. White people, if you were black, would you use the "N" word?

    3. If someone white called you the "N" word, would you beat them up or treat it like a normal insult? To all members on PSU, if someone called you a racial slur, would you physically attack them or treat it like a normal insult?

    Racial slurs don't bother me. I don't need to use them either.

    There no reasons to use that word. Unless you are looking to get your ass kicked.

    N****r or N***a? I would never call anyone a n****r. The other one I use among my friends jokingly. But I wouldn't use it here
    If someone uses a racial slur to me and keep saying it to me I'd beat the **** outta them.

    Yeah i have found when ending in a it is more of a joke or bond between friends. I mean look at all the comedies like hangover where he says it but ends in a. The other one dosent bother me much like being called a cracker dosemt bother me and at least here in Fl the wanna be country people call themselves FL crackers.

    Sorry but the n word is so overused these days that it has become more of a joke than an insult.

    I agree with Dave that it has been really overused. I don't think if anyone used a racial slur to me I'd be that bothered to be honest. Someone could turn around to me and call me anything under the sun but I'd be more upset if they'd criticised something I've done.
    I can read your thoughts.

    When I was younger I used it but not as an insult just because of the crowd I was around.

    As I got older I just replaced that word with dude lol

    In stead of this N****a its this dude ect lol

    I relaized it was a stupid word and I was stupid for using it when I was younger. Its a word that's just better not used.

    I've come to see this word to only be offensive when convenient in a lot of cir***stances.

    If your not going to use it all the time in all situations you shouldn't use it

    I never used the word. It is insulting. And if I was black, I would still never use the word and I wouldn't like being called it by anyone black or white. It's a trashy ghetto word. It's like calling someone a crank.

    Knobhead!

    That can be both an insult and an endearing word you use with you friends when they do something silly.

    "You ****ing knobhead!" when you wnt to punch someone in the face

    "what did you do that for you knobhead" when a friend does something silly.

    At the endo f the day it is words and the context is what makes the difference.

    I'm black. SURPRISE!!! I don't use the N word. Don't see the point. I've been called it a lot by a lot of different people, but I never started a fight over it. It takes a lot of work to offend me. I'm pretty much unoffendable.

    The thing is I really don't get offended easily at all and I forget that others do..and even then I have a hard time caring.

    This was the exact same thing I was going to post, most times I did not initiate the fight.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    I treat pretty much everything as a normal insult. As a white Australian it's part of our culture to be easygoing and often insult an rip on each other. It's just how it goes here. So it would take something really really REALLY strong to offend me.

    Also, so many black people in popular culture, tv and music use the N word... Which even though its supposed to be a derogatory term, doesn't help things

    Those kind of words dont bother me, though I dont use them either. Though I do say "****" and "**** on a nearly daily basis, mixed with "*****" - kind of fun to say really.

    It should never be used at all... It is an awful word for any reason and even in or out off context
