    As you can see, my username uses the n-word. I attempted to add B. Friendly [bhw member] on my skype
    because of his response to this thread:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...e-group-discuss-making-money.html#post4482953

    5 days after i sent him a skype request, i received this message from him
    After my response towards his, he thought it would be a good topic.
    What do you think of this matter?
    Would you choose not to work/talk with someone because of the username they choose?
    N notice how he said he would gladly share contact if i change my username, which i dont think is dont so easy on bhw, by the way
    Let me kno what you think?

    well first off for those that don't know nigga and n***er are socially very different.

    it depends on the business. If someone has a edgy username on here it depends what I'm doing whether i would let it affect my decision. nigga vs assmuncher would not make a difference i would treat both the same in my decision process

    Depends, If it was just business between me and you I wouldn't care all too much, but if it was at the professional level, dealing with multiple partners it would probably matter more. It's people with edgy names normally get a bad misconception just because of their name. It probably wouldn't hurt to change your name just in case people are uncomfortable with your name. Just my 2 cents.

    I just don't get it. The N word is not cool, regardless if it ends in "er" or "a".
    A poor username choice. Nothing more to add to this discussion.

    it is probably wise to change it.

    this seems like a one off, i doubt you could build your business with this name

    Lol man, some people are just way too fucking uptight. It's a username ffs. Words change and Nigga does not mean what it meant 50 years ago. Just like fag does not mean gay.

    People need to chill out and stop taking shit so serious.

    Basically, you fucked up with that name.

    I don't care about being politically correct, but that name just tells ppl you're unprofessional and probably a kid.

    i/we use the term casually in probably every conversation we have - it is considered affectionate. i respect that he said that he didn't care, and it was more a matter of what 3rd parties might think; i imagine his concern is valid. but, i've only ever seen these "offended" people on tv, in my world it doesn't have any association with racism.

    You'll probably get banned again soon anyway, and you can reincarnate with a username that offends some other demographic.

    I don't know how it slipped by, but yeah . . . it's not cool to be running around BHW
    with a name like that. We are very careful to protect our members from racists and.
    racist connotations. Even though, it may be "socially different" as one of our members
    said above, it could still be offensive to some of our members of color.

    I suggest that you contact one of our Administrators and ask for a name change.

    Our current Administrators are:

    - Pofecker (Super Administrator)
    - Diamond Damien (Owner and Administrator of BHW)
    - 7878 (Jr. Administrator)

    Thank you - "Wiz"

    If you an African American, then apparently it's ok...if you are white, you're a racist..so, based on that criteria, you can decide...

    Nigga does not equal nigg** ... I'm not black but I have a ton of black friends and I always communicate with them (and others) using "nigga" which I take to mean homie or friend. Now nigg** is offensive and I'd never use the word except for in a formal essay or even during conversation if I was trying to get a point across.

    That is only if they are part of the hip-hop culture. Not all blacks are part of that culture,
    and they are indeed offended by the term. I remember both Rev. Jesse Jackson and,
    Al Sharpton speak about how it is a negatave and degrading connotation.
