Racial slur banned in New York

The city council of New York has voted to ban the use of the word "nigger".

The resolution to ban the so-called "N-word" is largely symbolic as it carries no weight in law and those who use the word would face no punishment.

But it reflects a growing unease that the racial slur is now part of everyday conversation and that the taboo against its usage has been swept away. Click here for full article

I remember hearing about this...

Being white, I Understand how it is to not be allowed to say Nigger. Personally, I don't give a *fuck*. I'm most definetly NOT a racist person. In fact, there's a difference between black people (regular folk, just like whites, hispanics or anybody else) and Niggers. Martin Luther King was a black man. "Soulja Boi" is a Nigger. There are white niggers too, and I've always used the word against people I really didn't like.

So, they wasted all day passing a law that's symbolic..A stern talking to would have gotten the point across, but i suppose we have better things to spend our money on. this stupid country -_-

If you even have to think about it, the niggers are winning.

Do you think they get that intellectually involved over calling you a honkie?

To say "No, niggers don't think," gets you accused of racism. To say, "Yes, they probably do," is a lie. So you're damned if you do, and you're damned if you don't, so why let niggers even be an issue with you?
