So who is running for mod, anyway? Is there going to be more than one?
Just loGged on tonight for the first time in a long while, and see they have opened up the books, so many amazing people on this forum I cannot pick just one. So I wish GREAT amounts of luck to all the nominees!
With all due respect the word "******" in the dictionary does not refer to one's skin color and/or nationality. It simply pertains to being "ignorant" in general. Meaning: a Caucasian can be a ******. A Chinese person can be a ******. A Mexican can be a ******. A Canadian can be a ******. An Indian can be a ******. Brown, white, black, orange, pink, purple.....it don't make a damn. All those colors can be a ******. The color of a man's (mankind in general) skin does NOT define his character. Anyway, if you're an ignorant mod, I would nominate you...... If not, I would still nominate you. Catch my drift????Yep I agree free speech is no more to people that have a high level of frame ( I guess I will call it that) just look at Hulk Hogan he called his daughter a ****** lover and he lost everything. I believe that he didn't hate blacks( just caught in the moment with a family dispute) it not like he killed one but they sure act like it.
"Niger/nigra/nigrum" is "black" in Latin. That's the origin.Unless the definition has changed in the dictionary. I know its a racial slur but it used to mean "ignorant" or "sorry/lazy" person (which can define any one person despite skin color).
@Casey K.Unless the definition has changed in the dictionary. I know its a racial slur but it used to mean "ignorant" or "sorry/lazy" person (which can define any one person despite skin color).
Yes that is the definition now but the old definition (had this definition in it as well) had to do with a "sorry" or "lazy" "ignorant" person. That was the "main" definition of the word. I do know its origin and I am VERY familiar with my history. I don't like hearing it, nor do I use it, however, if we change definitions to words and come up with new words to add to the dictionary, aren't we the reason the definition is what it is today? So the definition of it meaning "ignorant" or "sorry/lazy" person is the incorrect definition and the definition that defines a dark skinned person is correct?@Casey K.
Honey, that's what a lot of caucasian folks said to try and make it alright to use it,
I hate that term to the point of being fighting mad, To be fair I hate it no matter who is using it, and when someone uses it then says it's not like he "killed one but they sure act like it" Uhuh, there's no excuse and I will say something every damn time. Read between the lines and notice the way its worded. Its quite simply not ok in my world.
If I'm banned for it, oh well.

I did read that nika, is Hawaiian for ignorant or lazy,
If I can find it, there was an article about one (Now defunct) dictionary that listed it as 'lazy or ignorant person" to supposedly make it more socially acceptable? I just have HUGE issues with any type of prejudices. Gender, sexual preference, size age race.
That type of ignorance infuriates me, NOT at you however lol
