Mensagem:  Well, It also baffles me to know that these days the N word can be used openly by whites and not cause any concern by Blacks, specially in a place as metropolitan as Florida. I know for a fact that it must've at least caused some discomfort in them(blacks), despite the fact that they didn't verbally object to its use by these white youngsters. Nevertheless, had it been used towards them, I can say with certainty that it would've certainly caused them some damage, whether verbal or physical. I, for one, always fell uncomfortable when youngsters refer to me with the N word. Ironically, I've never really challenged them as to why they use the term. But guess what, next time a youngster refers to me with the "N" word, I will challenge him as to what he really means, for as I said, I don't quite understand why it's used among youngsters, considering it's destructive history. As for the appearance argument, it's a fact that they play a role. However, just a little role, I would say. A perfect example? Your people-the Irish. They look exactly the same as the English, and yet look how the English treated them for so long-as inferiors. In fact, to this day, the English have a superiority attitude towards the Irish.
