The ferocity of this word is still there. Imagine being in public place with a mix of cultures, and you (in cosmopolitan mode) hearing a pair of brothers toss "nigga" back and forth. Whether or not you condone it...doesn't the room seem a little more tense?

I'm not saying that Black isn't prevalent. But Black is a color...it has no historical reference. The question remains...why endear "nigger" when it was used so maliciously?? Are we still trying to erase the scars?
