The New "word"

There is a trend I have been aware of for a few months that is to me just as bad as using that word.

For sometime people have use the phrase "N-word" to replace when quoting someone who used that word-rhat is fine.

But a growing trend is people are just using "N-word" to get around not being able to say it. And it is thus becoming just as bad.

As some say it is often about context. So the context of saying "I'm going to say 'the-N-word'." or "I have an 'N-word' Pass." This is not okay. To me if you say something and use "N-Word" in place of that word, unless you are quoting someone, that is no different.


I do not know why but the other day youtube was doing its thing and this guy comes on and he says "If you are wrong you have to say the N-word 5 times..." I was like "what?" (it was PewDiePie who I am aware has the most subscribers of anyone else)

Please if you have nothing to add...don't.

I am making a Point that people are now saying "N-word" as a work around to use that word. To me that is just as bad. It is like they are saying it without saying it so they can claim "I did not use that word."

If it gets locked or deleted I will make sure to bring it up that I called it.. this IS going to be a thing.

So are you are okay with people exploiting a work around to use that word with impunity? Duly Noted.

it is funny how I called out a use of that word and I was accused of being mad that I could not use it... I do not use that or any identity based slurs and I call them out when others do.

Some make excuses... I Speak Truth to Power and I advocate against the use of such!

That is NEVER Nonsense!
