Me and my friends use it but were all black so it's not really a big deal. Don't see the big deal if someone of another ethnicity says it. I say it to my non black friends too. Do you use it? Is it wrong to use it if you're not black?

there is a token black member of my closest group of friends and we all call him it to get under his skin that wasnt a pun
#3 Posted by Legend002 (6947 posts) -

No. And I don't think it should be used at all.

Let's be clear that there's a difference between ending with a "a" or an "er", as for myself, it's not an everyday thing, but yeah I do say it. It's mostly to express excitement "Did you see that dunk my *****?!" but it's something that over time I have found myself saying less and less as my vocabulary has expanded.

I do, but in a parody of the people who use it in their common language. Me and my mother use it to refer to each other jokingly.

Considering how where I grew up if you didn't speak in ebonics you were labeled a "white boy", yes I do.

I don't think the ending has anything to do with the perceived meaning.

I can say the word Negro just as offensive as the "errr" ending.

No i dont. I did work with a older black guy who asked me to say wassup n@&$a because he thought it was funny how awkward I said it.
#9 Posted by Blueresident87 (5312 posts) -

#10 Posted by konvikt_17 (22131 posts) -

Most people don't assiociate that with being racist though, in any black community. The "er" version though is almost always met with anger no matter who says it. Paul Mooney used to get flack for that.

Nah, Im not black and I think other races shouldn't use it, I just see it as one of those culture things within a race.

Every once in a while with close friends in non public sitiations, but generally speaking I think it's a word best left for bedroom activities.

I'm part of the other percentage of black people that hate the term but get no attention because we're not rappers or athletes.

I get called the n word, because I'm black skinned, but my freinds mean no harm. It isn't like they are trying to offend me.
