I will never understand this…
& this is one of the few reasons I do not use the word.

Exactly. I don’t utter that word and don’t plan on doing so. I don’t understand how black people can get mad when white people say it but “we” say it all the time. A lot of rappers I like say it but when you ask them why they give this stupid answer of “turning a negative word into a positive word” or “nigga is a term meaning bro or endearment. It’s different than saying nigger”. No it’s not! If you don’t want white people saying it then none of us should say it all. End Rant.
