Maybe in Finland they are into Rappers and it was supposed we would all be digging the usage. Understandable but regrettable. Pretty sure here he is surprised he offended.
[I think he said Finland]
Yeah, most people from Finland probably don't understand how sensitive the "N-word" is in the US, and how it is generally accepted (even though it shouldn't be, imo) for African-Americans to say it toward other African-Americans, but it's unacceptable for other groups to say it. He definitely needs a little slack if rap videos actually reached Finland. But then again, he also said 'canos, earlier. So I guess its possible racist slang could be a hobby of his...lol
I as well as everyone else has undoubtedly heard all the jokes and preconceived notions about our beliefs and ethnicity. They aren't going away any time soon so perhaps anyone overly sensitive should try to develop a thicker skin.
Words can hurt, when they are directed to someone, but a single word for no-one makes no harm to anyone. Samuel L Jackson is a cool guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYYBJ8XRdh4
Btw, I calculated about 1358 n-words in this Youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e52-Vx5PMCQ so it can't be very offensive a word. Otherwise they wouldn't be using it towards each other. Oh wait.. they're blacks so they can use it and whites can't? Why? I hope CrapsForever is black, because a white person getting that nuts about this silly thing would be even more absurd and mindless over-acting political correctness. In my opinion - if one group has the right to use any one word, then everyone has the equal right to use that word. It's nothing racist but it's equality and something of a common sense.
I guess the New World Order makes the population more uniform and people will have bigger problems to get concerned about than those N words. I just began to hate people.
Thanks, and sorry!
Oh wait.. they're blacks so they can use it and whites can't? Why?
Basically this. This is the way it's been in the US for most of my life at least. But why this word formed a double standard instead of being offensive in all uses/situations is beyond my comprehension.
Racial relations in this country will never fully heal until we all follow Dr. Martin Luther King's advice and judge people by the content of their character and not the color of their skin. If we give cultural groups permission for racism because of their race we are therefore condoning behavior based upon the color of their skin, not on the man or woman that they are. Until we can have a society where everyone is treated equal and there is no Affirmative Action, then we are not living up to this ideal. I as a white person, don't wish to be blamed for the sins of people 8 generations ago, who weren't even in this country when those things were going on. And quite frankly, the Irish, Polish, Italians and other people were treated like absolute crap when they got here as well. They got over it. I don't say that to be insensitive but at some point we have to move on and grow up and become accountable for our own actions rather that looking to blame someone else for our lot in life.

So when exactly did you have the common sense to tell a black man he was a N* ?
