    Now before I begin, I feel like I need to state some obvious facts so that there isn't too much butthurtiness in this thread.
    1. No obviously this type of behavior doesn't apply to the vast majority of people of any race.
    2. No obviously I'm not accusing you of anything nor am I saying that you condone this type of behavior.
    3. No I'm not angry, I'm just sharing an experience so that we can all learn and grow together my dear.
    __________________________________________________________________

    I think I need to get the fuck out of the south as soon as humanly possible. I was walking to the gas store from the bank, daydreaming about levitation :D and stumping skeps left, right and center - as I usually do lol - when this random white guy in a car said "hey wassup n*gg**". I thought shit just got real for a second and quickly scanned the area. I noticed that he had a friend in the front seat - who looked like he was ready to turn into a cockroach and slide under his car seat - and two other guys around the place. I was mostly looking to see if they had any guns or weapons on them and when I didn't see anything, I just smiled and nodded. I spent about 30 seconds in the gas station before leaving.

    Honestly, it just felt weird. It felt tense. I could feel my body being afraid. I could feel the adrenaline, the tightness in my chest that lingered until I was a good distance away from the place. After that came the simmering rage - not directed at the guy but at people who would see it as a non-threatening gesture from a possibly intoxicated individual. After all, black people say it to each other all the time so why can't he? ...... Rage gave way to an empty feeling. I had intellectually rationalized similar situations so many times that it didn't feel necessary to go through the same shit again. These three emotions - anger, fear and emptiness oscillated inside of me until they were barely a whisper then I just let it go.

    I feel bad for the guy. I don't think he realizes how dangerous it is to do that - even with your buddies around. I suppose he saw me as an easy, solitary target (I wear dorky glasses lol :D) but you never know who you're interacting with. What if I was different? What if I had a gun on me or something else? What if I was in a bad mood and was looking for a fight? I think you'd have to be crazy to live your life like that.

    Then you would point your gun at him, just because you were in a bad mood and he called you a "n*gg**"? Lol.
    That guy is ridiculous though.

    I'm not saying I would - obviously I'm not stupid enough to risk my life over something that minor. BUT others would. That's kind of the whole point of my story.

    He was trying to get a rise out of me for sure lol. He had a big smirk on his face.
    I don't think it's weird at all.

    And I don't feel like getting into that debate because it'll get pretty heated. I've never in my entire life gone up to a random black dude and call him nigga - only when I know them very well because people react differently to the word.

    You got called an N Star Double-G Double-Star!

    I've been called all kinds of racial slurs for races I don't even belong to. I'm Hispanic, although based on how tanned my skin is on a particular day, some people may assume I'm black, other may think I'm Filipino, and some people think I'm Mexican and speak Spanish (I don't).

    Interestingly enough, I once had a friend who was a "white supremacist". When I first met him, he called me all sorts of names, although he stopped on the second day and asked me why I didn't care, to which I responded with, "I've dealt with real racists before, I can tell you're not like that". After chatting for a bit, we later became friends and he told me a bit about why he took on that persona. Apparently, back when he was in middle school, he was bullied for being a "white boy" (the school we went to did have that problem). One day, he just got the idea that if he starts taking on that skin-head persona, they would leave him alone. Sure enough, he was left alone, although he became a bit of a bully himself. He calmed down throughout the year and dropped the whole act once he realised he didn't need to act like that any more.

    Yeah, same lol although to be honest it's very, very rare for this to happen and it's usually in the heat of the moment and not with a stranger.

    I can empathize with your friend and it makes sense that he would adopt that personality as a defense mechanism. There's nothing quite as scary as a white supremacist haha. What's not so funny is that it's pretty easy for a person to get trapped into that way of thinking...permanently.

    Lol darth vader style - just force choke the shit out of him? Waahah. Unfortunately that would be playing into the young, violent, aggressive black male stereotype and I don't feel like justifying his conduct.

    Some people are just scum. Some people are just ignorant. Some people are just ignorant scum.

    The thing is, the guy was weak, would he have said anything if his buddy wasn't in the car, or if you had a couple of friends with you? I doubt it.

    He probably got a buzz from it, felt a little powerful. How much of a sad pathetic life do you have to be living to resort to racial insults to have a little power in your life?

    Clowns like that usually get slapped up eventually.

    Seriously man - what irks me is the idea of picking on someone weaker than you. If you really believe there's nothing wrong with saying the word and being a jackass, you should be brave enough to do it in front of anyone.

    Really?

    Being friendly is "hey wassup man", "hi", "hello" or perhaps staring longingly at the enormous bulge protruding from my pants.
    Looking for a rise is shouting obscenities at me from the back seat of your friend's car with a shit eating grin plastered all over your dumb face.

    Picking on somebody weaker is classic bully behaviour, and what do we know about bullies? That they are actually afraid of being victimised and they actually feel powerless, by picking on somebody weaker they deflect attention away from themselves and get to feel like they have some power in their lives.

    I am mixed race and in my younger days had a fair few fights with people (of all colours, Black, White, Brown) because of race. Most racists are pussies that don't have the balls to say or do anything one on one.

    I don't have a problem with people making any kind of racist comment, but they better have the balls to say it to my face, which most don't.

    I don't care what the colour of somebodies skin is, I think everybody else apart from me is a clown. I believe in equal opportunities, I hate everybody.

    They weren't picking on you or looking to cause a scene, lots of media is making the gga one an okay thing to say. Its the ger one that is the racist slur one.

    You know, I giggle like a schoolgirl every time pricks like that get, as they say, their just recompense.

    It reminds me of this jock kid I knew in college that was a bully because he thought he was stronger than everyone else. He ended up picking a fight with this 130 lb guy in the bathroom, who apparently was a secret hulk. Jock boy was beaten so badly they had to use a wire to shut his jaw tight for weeks. I heard that the skinny dude had broken one of the sinks when he slammed the guy's face on it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I think you'd have to be insane to think it's okay to call a random black person on the street both forms of the word knowing the history of race relations in this country. How do you know he wasn't trying to be rude? What business does he have talking to me anyway? Does he like the way I look or something? No ofc not he was trying to push his boundaries in a situation where he thought he had the upper hand. That's all there is to it.

    One of my favourite jokes about race is by Chris Rock



    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niggas_vs._Black_People

    Obviously a White Comedian wouldn't have got away with it but the reason I like it is that you can apply it to people of all colours.

    There is good and bad people in every race and it is the small minority of clowns that ruin things for others.

    Damn something would be said if a black guy did a racial slur towards a white guy.
