re: #660 boxhead

Do you think it is possible for a culture/society to move to the point where those words don’t have the negative meanings? I grew up in a very integrated neighborhood. My friends and I would talk smack to each other for fun. It was what it was. I don’t expect folks not there to understand, but we all just got along and words lost their power.

I know what you mean. I went to a Catholic high school in the north Bronx that was very mixed. There was no majority there. Race was hardly ever an issue, and if it ever was then that person would get shit from all sides for being uncool. Sadly, I think experiences like ours are in the minority.
