It’s great that you all have opinions. Really, it’s fantastic. But learn to have the maturity to keep some things to yourself. It’s called respect. Regarding religion, just because you are adamant about how much you don’t believe in a certain faith (and it’s fucking always Christianity), doesn’t mean you should be a complete asshole and try to break someone’s faith by telling them that what they believe is horse shit and there’s no proof. You just look like a dick with internet access. Have respect. I know plenty of Christians bash people too but it’s 2014. I thought we were past making sweeping generalizations about groups of people.
I mean damn, that goes to say with anything. Have respect for other people. Not everyone is going to agree with you, and just because they don’t, doesn’t mean you should hate them.

And they don’t even think about it. Don’t talk too loud, don’t make too many requests, don’t complain too forcefully about shitty service, put up with weird ass slightly racial compliments. And sometimes we joke about it like “lol! Better not do (normal human thing) cuz then people might think we’re uncivilized niggers” but it’s a painful constricting way to live. And not a type of way of living that non-Black people will understand
The question not being asked is why do we police ourselves? Not a simple question to answer. But plenty to think on.
for people who believe that anyone who isn’t black should not say nigga, what do you expect them to do when they’re bumpin their music and rapping alone. Do you think they should skip the n-word? When they go to festivals and shows, should they not say nigga with the performer? Honest question.
Also, what’s the argument against black people who don’t believe anyone, including other black people should say nigga either?
For me, it’s more of an issue of respect. Have some decency to not boldly yell the word when there are black people around you who may or may not take offense, where or not you believe they should. What you do in your privacy, that’s on you. That’s just how I feel.
