Your missing the point here. A white man cannot use the word nigger in a non-racist fashion. The weight of history is behind that word.

This has nothing to do with anything. Who cares what Italians and Japanese do or don't call themselves? And Whomp and Nip don't have any where near the historical significance of nigger. Don't mix apples and oranges.

THE TEACHER WAS INSULTING THE TENDENCY OF A DEMOGRAPHIC TO HABITUALLY INSULT THEMSELVES! Its called parody, its funny, and wasn't racist at all.

How do you not understand the lack of logic here? Listen carefully, If I choose to insult myself, that does not give you or anyone else leave to do so. It was not parody, it was not funny, and it was as racist as all get out.

Just don't get all worked up because an english teacher insulted some kid's command of the english language.

I am not upset because an English teacher insulted some kid's command of the English language. I am upset because a white man in a position of power over a Black child humiliated and degraded that Black child while simultaneously insulting my entire race.
