when will whitey learn that words can have serious consequences?
i mean justified or not, would you really risk an ass whoopin just so you can say one word? if someone offends you to the point where you want to steal him, is the first thought "will this be justified?" no.. you want to knock his block off cuz he disrespected you.
the justified shit only works in court. there is no judge or jury in the streets so you may be sentenced to an ass whoopin without trial.

i could care less about who uses the word myself but why do white people get so asspained b on this issue. nobody is stopping you from saying that word. but I take no responsibility for any negative outcome you receive.

is this not common sense?

look me in my face. i ain't got no worries.

I'm black and no violence is justified, but it wouldn't bother me if someone got beat up over it. Some people take it seriously

I don't think violence is justified.  If someone calls you the N word, you should be like "lolok" and walk away.

Come on with the rain, I've a smile on my face.

When you come down to it you can use any slur and use it to justify violence.

The N word is the worst in the bunch because of the history and backgrounf behind it. But I seem ppl get into fights for less than that and they felt justified.

You insult someone's sister or mother in some groups and you get more violence than a racial slur.
