I don't really see why I wouldn't - never seen a black artist opposed to it -

and it really kills the fun if I couldn't.

Btw I mean rapping/singing along to other raps - not writing my own and using racial slurs in them.

It’s a word that was used by caucasian slave owners and their families to dehumanise an entire race of people.

Use it if you want. If black people don't want to hear it then they shouldn't mindlessly support music that normalises it. So I'd feel dumb to get angry.

Yeah I know what you mean but I wouldnt use it in front of offended black people

It's just a lot of non-blacks would also be offended and don't know if I can in front of them

You've obviously said it before and you clearly think it's ok to say it so why make this thread ? To make us angry?

I've never said it - well publicly anyway.

Made this thread to know why I can/cannot say it.

Honestly I'd recommend you to watch this video, it's 3 minutes, short video and an eye opener. The last minute of this video answers your question.

To answer his question at the end I want to use it when I'm jamming to a song - its just a bit weird when I have to substitute it with the word neighbor or hum whenever it comes up in (pretty much every) line.

Lmao of course you can, I do it all the time and I'm far from black

they're just lyrics, the context is obviously not racial hatred

however I have some black friends who get upset if I say it whilst rapping to lyrics so out of respect I don't do it around them

Exactly. that's the problem. the lyrics. tempting people to say it and why though?? Then people have the nerve to get angry when a non black person says it to sound cool. Lmao they better get the **** away from me with that. So stupid. And as Akala said in that video: Jewish people own the rap industry. Not black people. The real "ugh" is black rappers not you.

Anyway.

Black peoples shouldn't be saying the n word too because they're basically normalising it but why are you trying to make them feel comfortable with saying the word? It's not that tempting to say the word.
