    "Nigga"

    Do you think it's wrong that non-blacks generally aren't allowed to say, "nigga?"

    Re: "Nigga"

    I disagree with your premise, I've hung around a lot of black people who didn't care and also referred to me as "nigga" and occasionally "White nigga" and one time "Crazy white nigga". There are some people who find it offensive, but that's true with any term, I think "Nigga" may have a bit more negativity attached to it then some words, but it's certainly not treated the same way as "Nigger" or any other racial slur for that matter, by most people anyway.

    As with all words in existence, it is only wrong in a certain context.
    i.e. Niggers are inferior to white people.
    Its just a slang word really. Like yank, yid, limey, crout etc

    Exactly this. It all depends on meaning and delivery. It can potentially be real bad but its also used pretty casually and in a friendly context.

    I recently called a friend of me nigger, at first I didn't notice the black guy walking by, until he stopped to see if I was talking to him. Kinda shat my pants for a second.

    Perhaps it's a little different outside the states, haha. Or at least where I've lived.

    I'm talking about not being allowed to say it even if it's "casual and friendly context", though, just because you aren't black.

    Re: "Nigga"

    Well, being a black man, I really don't give a fuck if any member outside of the african-american race uses "nigga" unless they use it in a derogatory manner.

    Still, if someone calls me nigger, I still throw it over the shoulder, because with every insult in this world, you are only offended if you subconsciously accept it in your mind that, "yes, what he said to me, applies to me". It's similar,(not the same) when someone non-Caucasian calls a white man/woman an redneck or honky. If you choose to accept that, in your mind, "I'm not a honky/redneck, i'm not a nigger", then nothing controversially racist can even touch your mental bubble.

    So in short, only niggers get offended by the word nigger.
    Only honkies/rednecks get offended by the latter.

    I personally don't have anything against the word 'nigger' myself, but I do believe one has to be somewhat careful with it. I use it myself quite a lot, but only with people I'm familiar with and it honestly doesn't matter whether the person I'm referring to is black or not, white people get called nigger by me more often than black people most likely. It doesn't seem right to me to use the word nigger to refer to someone black. Just use the word negro for that, it means exactly the same, but isn't nearly as offensive. And if they're still complaining, they're just oversensitive bitches, in my opinion, who are only offended, because they're taught to be offended.
