  1. I'm be real for a moment on the N-Word, we as black people cant expect any other race to not say the word when we use it like it's our own last name. I mean the word is a like a drug, I use to use it in every sentence, all the time. I am a recovering N-word user:) I grew up around hispanics and to be honest it never offended me when I was younger when they said it. Hell anybody who isnt white is "colored" or at least I use to believe that. I just think we have way too many other problems in our community to worry about one of our Latino brothers or sister saying the N-Word.
