    Theres a difference between ****** and nigga, but it's hard to explain.
    Most of the time its either relating to a friend, or used for comedy. Thats when the word "******" is used. Because of the whole slavery thing, it's rather difficult for white people to say the word without sounding a bit of a racist. But the majority of young african americans use the word. Not the old people.

    Indeed its wrong, but they cant sit there and use that against everyone forever. They need to get over it and forget it. There not the only ones that suffered. the world has.

    exactly

    if a white person says it but doesn't use it in a derogatory way then it's actually not that big of a deal......if they use it the same way that a black person would use (talking to a friend or something) then most of the other black people i know wouldn't even worry about it

    See, the deal is not "it's by white people so much more bla bla bla," it's the fact that it even occurs. Believe it or not, I find the "it happens from all sides but whites do it more" thing racist. Know why? Making the distinction is racism. It happens on any and all sides, and it's regrettable that somebody can be so ignorant as to do so. The point of this little rant is that these distinctions, that whites do this or blacks do that or..., are what creates racism, they're what keeps it alive, and ultimately, it's what keeps skinny little white kids calling you a ****** over a headshot on Xbox Live.

    Having said that, if you bitch at being called "cracker," you're either making it up or just plain over-sensitive. It's rarely, if ever, used.

    Weren't you the guy that just popped off with "I'm not racist and I'm far from it?"

    The Confederate flag was a battle flag of a nation which, in all of its short lifespan, held slaves. Unless you're going to start screaming about having the Brits, the Dutch, the French, the Germans, and every other nation that held slaves or participated in the trade to take down their flags, symbols, and anything else from that era, now's the time to shut up.

    No matter what the symbol originally meant, like the Confederate flag, swastika, and quite a few others out there, people have twisted their meanings and today you get skinheads waving a good luck charm around.

    P.S.
    The KKK use a Christian cross, surrounded by a circle, with a few decorations inside it as their symbol. The Confederate flag as we know it is, in fact, a battle flag. Mostly, it represents the Confederate soldier and Southern pride (not "white southern pride" as your site so kindly points out). As in pride in the area I and a large part of America live in. Misinformation plus bias equals ignorance.

    imo black people are just as rasicst as white people, but people dont see it as rascium because "the whites were the slave holders" so its asif black people have a reason to be rascist.

    all the black panthers did was stir up racial haterid. where as martin luther king did the oposite :P

    i mean this in a COMPLETELY no racist way. not all slavery was bad, it just matters what the conditions are. the enslavement of the blacks was obviously bad because of the conditions they were put in, but take the roman empire for example where almost all of the population was slaves which helped build the roman empire

    No... almost all of the Roman Empire's citizens were not slaves of the Roman Empire... Yes there were a lot of slaves that built things, but there were also a lot of people who's job it was to build things. You say it like some guys were like " Yo lets go build an empire, grab da slaves" It was built over thousands of years with the help from slaves and citizens. And slavery may be considered wrong, but if I was the leader of a nation and had to get things done. I would easily opt for slavery over paid workers. It's just much easier.
