Why is it okay for white guys to use the N-word in movies? by Tony Garcia
Answer by Tony Garcia:
I answered a similar question, Is it okay to say nigger jokingly? I will post that answer here.
“I do not think it is ever appropriate to use this word. It is an ethinc slur, used to strip African-Americans and those of mixed race with African ancestry of their humanity. It reduces people to caricatures, and in the skewed consciousness of some people, mitigates all acts of bias and violence perpetrated against them.
It is foremost in the language of prejudice; and although all racial and ethnic groups have been victimized by racial slurs, no American group has suffered as many racial epithets as have Blacks.
I suggest you and your friends refrain from using this word to describe any human being or any of their actions.”
