re: #604 McSpiff

Being serious for a moment, and maybe its different in different places…

Outside of polite company, and perhaps in public in general… Is a white person saying the “n” word that uncommon? I don’t use it myself( same with the “c” word for females), but I’ve heard it enough times by guys around my age (16-25) that it doesn’t exactly raise the hairs on my neck…

Seriously, this “gasp, white person using the n word!” almost sounds academic to me. But I’m completely willing to admit that I might be in the minority.

I almost never hear the word at all, in any kind of company. Grew up in Seattle, live in Portland. Nobody in my extended family uses it. The closest was my grandmother who was very upset that one of her grandkids was dating a man of mixed race, but even she didn’t drop the n-word.
