That's cause no one is saying ****er,they're saying ****a. I'm not black & I say ****a without any issues cause of the context and everybody knowing me.

i agree, but that's the perception of society in most cases. it's ok to say the word if you are of that race but if you're not it's offensive.
either way it's dumb as hell to say.

Indeed. Its ignorant. The English language has literally hundreds of thousands of words, and the word some people pick makes them sound like a moron.

Why, I ask. Why?

my guess is that rather than him being a moron and using the word in a pure racist manner that he hangs around so many teammates that use the word and you kind of get used to saying it.

similar to certain derogatory gay terms. sometimes you let it slip and didn't mean it in the way it sounded.

of course... he could just be an idiot.
When it ends with a "A" as in *igga...it could be taken as a slang. But he had the "R" in it with a nice southern racist tone to it.

People are entirely too sensitive about stupidity now. Who gives a **** if a person is a bigot or a-hole. Always been people like that. Get over it. Tired of news about racial slurs. I don't care.

so using that logic, it's ok for you to call your sister or mother a whore but nobody else can?

Calling it an endearing term is just their way of getting around using it.....

Here's a thought, change the word to "whore" or "****" next time you use it around a woman friend and see the claws come out.

Derogatory names are still derogatory names, regardless of the "context"

The NFL should police bad language now? There are more important things in the world than making a big deal out of racists

Of course you're not black..you're just a self flagellating limp wristed wannabe and I'd LOVE-LOVE-LOVE to watch you say that word in public around people of African descent and then while dodging body blows and uppercuts listening to you scream "..but I ended it with an 'A' not 'er'!!!"

Or maybe you could bust out your breakdance moves to show you're qualified to use the word...but only if it ends in an 'a' of course....

That's what I'd like to know.

Initially when I heard he said the word at a concert I thought a rap concert and everybody was saying the word. Said in this context he really looks like a fool. I'm all for the safeties going after him, personally, in a game.

You are full of ****. And why would you LOVE LOVE LOVE it?

I'm totally against that word and never allowed it in my house. My boys are not white but they also are not black and while playing in groups they often used that word to friends and around strangers in conversations. Nothing ever happened. I hate any form of the word and feel the blacks degrade themselves while using the "endearing A form". They've made it seem acceptable. It's not.
