what i meant when i say stereotypical black person is the way the majority
of black people in england of that age talk to each other and the language they use.
two black people saying it to each other in a similar context ...i disagree it does not sound wrong
I am black myself, although i would not describe myself as the "stereotype" ...becuase i do not talk the way most black people in my area talk or use as much of the slang to that much of an extent as most ...I have more white friends than black ..probably because for some reason i find i seem to get on with white people better. don't get me wrong i do talk and use some
slang that most black people in my area use from time to time ...but from having more white friends then black i don't really sound all that much like the sterotype.
getting back to the point, on occasion (although i myself use it quite rarely) I have used that word with black friends and I have seen other black friends use that word then talking with each other ...and no offence is ever caused. no one takes issue with it or anything
a white person can use that word too when talking to people and get away with it without it causing offence or make people start going wtf? ...but in order to do so the white person would need to really to regually talk in a similar fasion to how most black people talk ..and have it sound natural and not like he's taking the piss ...otherwise you'll just end up with the emily situation ...or worse get the living S*** kicked out of you if you come accross as being offensive or taking the piss.
I mean where does it stop, would it be k to say " Wassup my Paki", " Wassu my cracker"?.. It's all offensive
... other races don't seem to use words like that when talking with one another, ...however if they did ...maybe with time the word would become unoffensive when used like that between people of that race like the n word has become
don't get me wrong the n word is still offensive when someone wants to use it offensively
if a white guy comes up to a black guy and says "F*** off you n......"
its gonna be taken as "wrong" and offensive ...but when using the word in the right context between black people it does not sound "wrong" or offensive imo
like i said, i hardly ever use that word (last time i used it was like 2-3 years ago i think)...as i'm not really big on the slang ...but alot of black guys around my area will often use it ... it's just the way it is
