The question “is it different?” is Vague. So yes, it is Not As Offensive when a black person uses the N word. Most people don’t think twice about when black people use the word because the black community has taken the derogetory word and flipped it to mean something else (a brotherly greeting, for example). It Is VERY offensive when a white person uses the N word, esp in public or in the company of black people. Its just not socially acceptable, mostly because of the U.S. history & context of slavery and civl rights. Seeing that white people were the main perpetrators of slavery, and black people were the slaves, and the N word in those days was used as a derogetory term only…its not acceptable for white people to say that word, Ever.

I’m black, and I don’t really give two flips what people say. It would be nice if we lived in a compassionate world and people considered other people’s feelings, But we don’t for the most part. Just don’t say it to my face.
