Garyridgway, you are wrong wrong wrong, today's brothers lick everything but postage stamps (cause they are self adhesive now) that was an old taboo, they are realizing that women aren't going to stand for that one sided crap anymore

Unlike you, I believe that this is a REAL issue in the "black" community. That's fine though, I'm not looking to argue with you. I find it interesting that you have a somewhat different opinion about things than I do. However, I think the root of the problem(s) runs much deeper than (to misquote you) "their credibility is based on my being offended." In some cases (like the blogs I see), this may be true, but in others--No. Sometimes the words are used to deliberately offend someone, but many times they are used out of ignorance, and in this instance, I believe it was out of ignorance. Hence my reaction. If I had thought that person was deliberately trying to offend, I wouldn't have gave him the satisfaction of responding to his/her comment. Note he/she didn't respond again; I believe the point was well taken. Therefore, I think my comment was appropriate as well as effective.

Thanks for the History lesson though. It was interesting.

I know, La Mom. I'm 1/2 black, 1/2 white. Growing up, it was my white mother who taught me not to use those words, and I remember being very confused, thinking "but dad says it all the time".

No Diane. I don't recall those words from social studies. Not being sarcastic, but I don't. It may be because when I was in elementary these sorts of subjects were taboo. However, I do remember a lot of heated debates in my Sociology class in college about certain subjects. But they were interesting discussions that let us learn from one another...although I'm sure some of the people felt uncomfortable talking about these things.

Also, I remember exactly the first time my daughter was exposed to the "N" word. It was in daycare--from one of the caregivers at that. That "p"eed me off and I let her have it (the caregiver) for teaching young children this word. As soon as I found another daycare, I removed my daughter from that one!

I studied those terms under the anthropology section in our 5th grade social studies class. It is still used today in anthropology in studying the cranium.

Negro and colored are antiquated words which are not used much. My mother used to say "colored" back in the 60s. The United States Census used "colored" up until 1930. It wasn't being used in a hateful manner back then.

Because they were deliberately trying to offend, you just had to be offended?

The use of the N word in the world, and in the black community, is an issue if it genuinely upsets people, but it's just not something you should waste your intellect on. Fix all the major issues and that one will work itself out. Complaining about racial slurs now is like trying to seal off the bottom of your car so the oil won't hit the ground, rather than just fixing the actual leak.

How about the fact that prisoners are counted as residents of whatever county the prison is in, not the community they come from ... meaning the money to help impoverished people isn't going to impoverished neighborhoods. How about ranting about black people receiving harsher sentences in court. But, probably to start, you should help change the fact that low-income housing neighborhoods have the crappiest schools.

What do you do offline to help the cause? I'm just curious.
