I was just thinking about this because I was watching season 2 of The Wire where there was the group of white kids calling each other the n word and wearing durags and South Pole. Nick Sobotka calls one of them a wigger. It definitely seemed like snapshot in time.

Given the original meaning of the word it fits them more than it would black people.

The word nigger means lack of intelligence; ignorant.

This does not exclude any ethnicity. If anyone is a nigger in the truest sense of the word, it would be white people. White people have continued to me remain ignorant and lack intelligence regarding black people and other ethnicities to this day.

Are you really trying to say that there's not a racial component to the word "nigger?"

What I am saying is that the nigger as originally intended was NOT meant for a specific ethnicity. That label was put put on black people, but that was not the real meaning. As I originally stated, it was a term used for ignorance and lack of intelligence. Who has been more deserving of that word than white folks? They were the ones that lacked the intelligence. They were the ones who were ignorant. Trust and believe there are several white folks that are niggers.

I wanted to give you the benefit of doubt before I assumed anything.

I mean, I hear your opinion but its stated in a vacuum. The meaning of words and how we use words shifts over time. Language is a living thing. So, while you're not wrong about the definition of the word you've also completely trimmed off the rest of the meaning/associations

My main point (which is not opinion) is that blacks have allowed this to go on without confronting who the real niggers are. We have accepted whatever people have done to us. I have not trimmed off the rest of the meaning or association. So if I’m not wrong about the definition of the word, then I’m not wrong to whom that term really applies. True meanings change over time, but you will never get me to believe that nigger is solely meant for black people.

In response to Reply # 31


  

          

An etymology looks something like this

idiot (n.)
early 14c., "person so mentally deficient as to be incapable of ordinary reasoning;" also in Middle English "simple man, uneducated person, layman" (late 14c.), from Old French idiote "uneducated or ignorant person" (12c.), from Latin idiota "ordinary person, layman; outsider," in Late Latin "uneducated or ignorant person," from Greek idiotes "layman, person lacking professional skill" (opposed to writer, soldier, skilled workman), literally "private person" (as opposed to one taking part in public affairs), used patronizingly for "ignorant person," from idios "one's own" (see idiom).

It was a real definition that was in dictionaries up until they changed it.

Aziz did a bit where talked about how it was a bad look, for a politician and others
who caused controversy, by using a word based on it's original definition, to use that word when they didn't it.

He probably should’ve used a few more unsavory terms to describe those in the Ohio Senate.

26. "I'm not sure where you got that from..."
In response to Reply # 19


  

          


Yeah, I'm fairly certain that "nigger" was derived from other languages (mostly European) & their word for "black."

I'm not sure where this idea came from that it was just a shot at ignorant people. Like someone else said, that's an excuse that I've heard white folks use when they throw it out at someone and get called out for it.

Holla at me when you do. The only thing I’m certain about is that you don’t know the real meaning. Of course is was put on black people, but that was NOT the original meaning.

And this is what we say when we don’t grasp the true meaning of that word.

41. "Redneck connotes ignorance as well"

>The word nigger means lack of intelligence; ignorant.

>people have continued to me remain ignorant and lack

>

But would the average person use nigger and redneck interchangeably?

No, because they're both racialized. Nigger connotes black ignorance (and often black, in general) while redneck connotes rural white ignorance.

So I get the attempt to de-racialize the word but I think it's a lost cause bc its inextricably been linked to black people by hundreds of years of use.

Blacks in their cowardice let that term define who they were, when in reality we were never that.

39. "nice to know your stupidity isn't confined to religion "
In response to Reply # 13


  

          

It's no surprise to see you trotting out an argument from definition fallacy and sidestepping every bit of context and nuance in a discussion. It's alarming to see you doing that shit on this particular subject, but hey.... at least you're consistent, I suppose.

When white people get called out for calling a black person that word, they do exactly what you just did, in a poor attempt to intellectualize, and therefore justify, their use of the word as an epithet towards black people.

What it "really" means doesn't magically remove the historical context of the word. Leaning on what it "really" means is is to ignore the actual usage.

But yeah... great job showing that you're a colossal fuckwit across the board.

It’s no surprise that you remain utterly stupid without looking at the origin of things. It’s alarming on your behalf that you do no research and are blind and misguided about all things. Yet you make posts like you’re actually intelligent.

So me saying what the word really meant versus people who who misuse the word for their benefit is the same? How dumb are you really? You are the typical person that they have in bondage to this day. Another dumb and blind individual.

56. "iono coming up i heard it a lot, from both white and black people"
In response to Reply # 55


  

          

from white people it was just a blanket term for white kids who "acted black" such as listening to rap, speaking with a black affectation, dressing in hip-hop style or whatever combination of those types of things.

for black people it was the same but generally used for those who they didn't accept. it was rare to see a kid who comfortably hung out with black people described that way.

I can imagine some Asians or Latinos using it against their own. I stress the word, "some."

Like you, I've never heard a black person use it as an attack on another brother/sister. That's part of what made it so nuts when Clayton Bigsby said it.

One of the opposing coaches (white) called JB that. The directors didn't make it plain, I guess for the potential racial/socioeconomic can of worms it would open...but they ran right up to the line.
