    As the above basically states it seems that it is only racist if coming from a white person. Obvious examples are black people who refer to eachother as n*gg**, the fact that a lot of people complain that white people act black. Would the previous statement be as acceptable if i say 'i hate it when blacks talk/act like white people'.

    We also get stereotyped alot which is exceptable, mostly abroad. But if we was to counter-stereotype then we would be trainee hitler youth...

    Two negatives = positive.

    So it's racist if you're white.

    Racism is racism. And it shouldn't be acceptable in any shape or form. Period.

    It's not the word itself: it's the intent behind the word that counts. When my white friends refer to my black friends as any 'casually racist term', it's all in good fun; however, would it be the same if a man in a KKK hood said the same thing?

    Some people's failure to understand some of the most basic social phenomena truly astounds me.

    EDIT: There's a good reason why white people often try to act like black people, but the reverse doesn't happen.

    Yes some people are racist. Some people aren't and get accused of it anyway because some people are stupid. Racism is slowly turning into the Hitler argument, and we all know the correct response to the Hitler argument is to sigh and walk away.

    Hence why I don't say the 'n word' event though I'm black, because I see see it just as offensive to people of other races. I mean if white people had a word only they could say people would start getting angry!

    Also, loads of people say I act 'white'. I take no offence to it because it's true People don't really get angry when white people 'act black', only when they try too hard or it's too obvious they do it on purpose, sort of when you can tell someone's trying really hard to be as camp as they can.
