You can't be using that word b. Don't be a fuck boy like some of these white kids and hispanic kids using a word that their culture has no part of.
Actually its not as bad as usin tha word and bein a white guy...Im Latino myself and i use the word as well, a lot of my friends are black and we all use it....ya bitch! haa
i really dont think it matters what race you are, the fact that blacks casually throw the word around shows how its lost the original meaning in which it was used in a very offensive way toward their race. Therefore, i dont see it as being offensive at all, since blacks call each other it, and (some, not all) only seem to get offended when a person of a different race uses it toward them. Rather hipocritical. I personally dont use the N-word. But in a nation where we no longer have slavery and blacks have the same rights as whites, its use isnt really applicable. Its basically has the same meaning today as words like "bro, dude, man, homie, dawg, etc.
