    What's so bad about nigga?

    Well most of the black people in Europe (Aside from the UK and certain other countries that have a large diversity) are first generation.

    In the US you've had black people there for many generations due to the slave trade, where in Europe black slaves were brought in at a much smaller scale.

    SO basically football fans use it as a demeaning term to target opponents, which has been seen time and time again throughout the continent (like in the England-Spain friendly the Spanish crowd chanted monkey noises everytime a black player touched the ball, and similar things happened to Eto'o and Balotelli in Italy).

    So basically racism is a topic that has become over-sensitised in the world of football.

    What's so bad about calling my people that? It's insulting. You should never talk that way to a stranger. With your friends speak how ever you like. Being from the south, from a family that marched with Dr King, there is a lot wrong with that word. One day I can only hope we are not judged by our skin color.

    Nigga is another word for bro to me. I have never seen any black person trip when I say it around them. It's not that big of a deal where I am from, are people really that sensitive over in bama?

    When you family is attacked by the police, who call you nigger, when a friend of the family was drug through the streets by a truck till he died, yeah we don't like this word. I have seen people on this sight loose it over being called a drunk. Now imagine people In White robes showing up ready to kill the nigger.
    Speak how ever you want with your friends. But I have personally lost a childhood friend who's only crime was being black. My grandmother still walks with a limp from being attacked by police dogs at a nonviolent protest. In short, in my life I have seen that word uses as an excuse to kill.
    As much as I hate that word, I will fight for your right to say it. Though I do ask, not tell, to take care when and where you use it. To me that word represents an evil that is similar to the evil represented by the nazi party.
    It can be used in a way that is not hatefull

    It's a fine line. Remember some of us have lived in fear of the kkk and still have the physical and emotional scares. Don't use it lightly or with strangers.

    That was like, 60 years ago. I think it's time to move on. You'd have a hard time not hearing that word at least once a day, either from music or from people talking. I'm pretty sure people really only care about it when it is meant to be used as a slur. At least in my experience.

    1981 was 60 years ago? You may need to learn basic math.
    Mrs Donald still attends my church. Her son and my friend is still dead. My grandmother still walks with a limp from dog attacks. How long should a mother grieve over her child who was killed for no other reason than being black? you feel my grandmother should get over it when she still limps and feels the pain of the attack still to this day. Would you tell a suvivor of a consentration camp to move on? To tell us "to move on" is not your place. It's a shame your generation is forgetting the magnitude of the hell that what WE live with.

    Please tell me how many friends you have lost because of the color of their skin? How many of your friends have you seen with your own eyes hanging from a tree? Let me take a wild guess, with a name like Casper, you are white?

    It's fine to grieve, it's not fine to tell others what to say and what not to say. I don't really understand why a word bugs you so much. It's not like I throw a tantrum when a black person calls me casper (also a racial insult).
    - casper667 February 9, 2013, 6:48 am
    So how many of your friends were killed for being a Casper? Has anyone ever had dogs attack you or your family for being a casper? Please answer this. Please tell me. This is not a trick question and hope you may answer it honestly.
    To compare the history of hate of nigger and Casper, to call them comparable in any way shape or form only shows how you do not understand the suffering of my people. I get that since the kkk has not killed in your short life it must be ancient history in your eyes. In my eyes it was just a short while ago. In short it bugs me, speaking only for myself and no others due to the fact that nigger was the word and excuse used to kill, tourture, rape, and humiliate my people.
    It would appear you have skipped over most post to you and did not read and or comprehend what I have told you. So let me copy and paste from my above post for you to read;

    As much as I hate that word, I will fight for your right to say it.

    As of yet I have told no one what to say, so don't get my words twisted. I have served my country and am a retired captain in the marine core. I have fought for your right to say nigger all you want. Just as I have fought for the WBC to say god hates fags and dead solders. To me the more you say nigger, the more you are like WBC. I hate that anyone says any of this, but I have willingly risked my life for your constitutional rights to do so. I love my country, that does not mean I love every thing we do in this country but unlike many on this site I understand the importance of protecting the rights of the people, even the ones I can not stand.

    One last time;
    I may not like what you have to say but have and always will fight for your right to say it.

    It's good that the whole if AC Milan walked off and not just Boateng, that's the sort of stance Italian teams need to take.
    - poopiteepoop February 8, 2013, 3:03 pm
