Check out the video and how do you feel about other minorities and whites using the N word.

With over 2 decades in various positions in the CJ system and growing up in the ghetto (as a "non-white"...whatever that means) I can honestly say I have no idea what the N word means.

I've heard every "race" use it within their own "race" and against other "races". In anger, in joy, in seriousness, and in jest.

The only common denominator is that the people I've heard use it are not the type of folks I share any core values with (judging by their actions).

It might as well be replaced with a made up word.

Yup. And just like everything else detrimental that blacks have to be associated with, it's controlled and funded by whites. The record labels that push this misogynistic and violent music are owned by whites. Like Lyor Cohen. The man that promoted and managed NWA (that was so hated and evil), Jerry Heller, was a white man.

Just like Black Lives MAtter that is funded by and controlled by whites such as George Soros.

Funny how whites hate so many things black people do but those actions are mostly funded and pushed by whites

If you don't know what it means by now, then what's the point. You don't need to know. Hell, you've gone this far without knowing. Sounds as if it's made little difference in your life.

I go to one chat site, whose members are predominately young blacks and Hispanics, occasionally and see all the teens and twenty somethings calling each other *****. I guess times have changed but I won't use the word.

Rap is crap with the "C" removed.

It is a completely meaningless word. I've read incident reports from county lockup where all "races" have used it. An Asian guy once called an Australian guy (not kidding...he was here on vacation and got arrested for DD) the N word during a verbal altercation. Blacks, whites, Hispanics, the whole nine yards were there and nobody thought anything of it.

Again, it has been reserved for a long time now by the lower class as nothing more than jibberish. Females in the lower class use it too but not nearly as often as males. It has no meaning there either though.

Puts a shame to those who actually have talent of playing instruments and singing. Mick Jagger not only sings, plays guitar, maracas, tambourine, harmonica, harp, piano, drums....... the man has talent!

Majority of rap music preaches hatred towards other black people, women, society, and cops. Since they know that white people buy their music so you don't hear hating on whites. Which is a big hint, who runs the rap music labels. I listened to it and loved it at some point of my life. A lot of lyrics degrades women and women are ok with that? Sometimes I think black women hate other black women because the lyrics projects negativity about them.

I despise the "N" and wish it was stricken from our language. Having said this, it is a word now commonly used by all races among our youth. I follow my sons college Twitter page and I can promise you the word is used by everybody. It does not hold the same meaning to them as it does for me (53 years of age). I can also say kids of this generation get along much better with each other. Race means little to them. White kids listen to as much rap as the black kids do and they party together. The college environment has certainly changed since I was in school. Although I hate the "n" word, it does bring my joy knowing the meaning and context of the word has changed greatly since I was a youth. Among our youth it is not a word that inspires hate but rather friendship. Strange but true.
