    Mod Note- Don't go around word filters in these threads. Your asking for infractions when you do that.

    Does it make a difference if it wasn't welcomed by the 2 recipients?

    Well that told us nothing.

    Just print the word so we know what he said and how it was used.

    Otherwise I don't care.

    I don't see how it makes a difference, I'd be called a racist if I used the "a". I've just heard some black people on video say there is a difference. They say it's a term of endearment, but I know any well meaning white guy would get called racist for using it in the same way.

    He was having an argument with them so he said plenty of things not welcomed by them and some people are insulted if disagree with them no matter what you say.

    So I need to know a lot more to know if he stepped over the line.

    What would you prefer a senator call you? Honky or White Trash? Cracker or Cracka?

    I'm assuming you would prefer they don't call you any of the above, right?

    Cracka is ok to say. I learned that when that that kid got shot.

    Did they say Cracka is a gay person? And Cracker is a white derogatory term so I know that.

    White people are simultaneously immune to racism and constantly the victim of discrimination in 2017. Haven't you heard?

    Why don't many blacks get upset that the n word is used so much in rap music?
