Sighs....clearly. The Okay Finn part was sarcasm since he felt the need to come in guns blazing about derailing the topic but didn't contribute at all. I just checked the first two pages because his name I didn't recognize but I could have easily missed it. I was addressing 'Unoriginal Gangster' and asking him what his opinion was on the use of the N word!
OKAY FINN so you're the type of guy to use the word N***** then?
Stop derailing the topic with your "I don't care what you think, I'll do what I want" attitude.
Have you actually read any of his posts or are you having an argument with a shadow? I'm totally lost as to what point, if any, you are trying to make.
Why are you still going on? Your sarcasm doesn't make sense, nor does your general post content in your past posts on this topic.
Or are you blatantly ignoring Girish because of your "I don't care what you think, I'll do what I want" attitude?
Anyway, on topic; I've heard a lot of people from all kinds of backgrounds say things such as "damn, my nigga", "nigga shut the f*ck up" and so on. Most of the people I've heard saying things like that aren't even black. Most of them were Chinese, Pakistani or Caucasian. Some of them were just taking the piss, others had gotten into a horrid habit of using the term in their social life.
I've seen a few black guys get emotional when hearing the term used like that, although most of them tend to ignore it. Sometimes it does get out of hand and an argument or even a fight in some circumstances will happen.
If you ask me, it's the internet that's caused people, mostly teenagers, think that it's okay to use such a term, hence why it's used so much all around the world. Sometimes it's that person being inconsiderate about people's feelings, although in most cases it's either down to how they were brought up or because they're a regular internet user.
The term is mostly used among gaming communities. Most teenagers play games regularly nowadays, so I guess that kind of explains it. The term is abused in some roleplaying servers, especially SA-MP ones.
