The N Word - Poem by Ramona Thompson

I have a poll that goes with this so if anyone would like the link please message me.


Black people seem to be ok with calling each other the N word on their cds and in their movies but if someone of another race uses the word they get offended.

Should they get over it already? Are they just trying to cause trouble and get extra attention?

Are they the ones who are truely being racist here?

What are your thoughts?

    Hi Ramona! On # 1 - I think the N word should not be used freely by blacks or whites!
    On # 2 - If black people use the N word to greet one another then whites
    will think its acceptable to use it freely anytime. Seems like your going to
    always have a few that will use color to blame for their shortcomings, white and black both
    I went to grade school and high school and never saw a black person till i joined the service
    Times have changed, my kids were not raised to hate other races. Kids learn from parents
    A racist isn't born that, he's taught that way. Just a comment not an answer
