Why do white people even want to say it so badly anyway? Like, I can recognise that it's a word with a horrific history and association and I genuinely cannot see any occasion where it would even be required. It's not a necessary part of white people's vocabulary. Why do they need to keep seeking justification for saying it?

They’re aggressively protecting their investments in white supremacy and entitlement. Only reason I can ever think of.

On the topic of the n-word. In fiction set in the past, white authors will often use the n-word to make their dialogue authentic. And while this isn't okay, what do you think of them using other words that are still problematic but not on the same level as the n-word? Like "colored" or "negro" to keep their writing authentic without resorting to using words that they shouldn't be suing in any context? Is it the same rule, if you're not black just don't? Or are those okay in certain contexts?
reverseracism reverseracism Said:

Hmmm, I’m not sure, I’d say as long as it’s used with a purpose and not thrown everywhere for fun and shock value like Django Unchained.

Is it racist to not like guys of my own race? I've really tried and when I say tried, I mean tried. I've looked at pictures of guys my own race and studied what I don't like about them, but I can't find it. Nothing about them excites me. I really only like and have dated white guys. Is this wrong?
reverseracism reverseracism Said:

I can’t say if it is or isn’t. I can only say that that’s something you need to look into depth and figure out the why of it, if you wish to.

does anyone else ever notice that the majority of dance films about breakdancing, hip-hop etc. usually have white leads and mostly white casts
reverseracism reverseracism Said:

Shiiit. All the time now. Stomp the Yard was the last movie with dancing and black leads. I mean you have another with Boa coming out but of course one of the protagonists has to be white. Shit all started with that Channing Tatum movie didn’t it.

Million black friend march in which black friends marched on the KKK headquarters with signs like ” I wish blacks would stop complaining too” , “you can call me a nigger I don’t mind”, and “we belong at the back of the bus because we act like we belong there”

Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.

Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.
