Curiously, in spite of its alleged toxicity, the word has not been removed from the English language. Instead it has been replaced by a tortuous euphemism – "the N-word." This subterfuge offers compelling evidence that, even though it has been censored, the word still has a useful purpose in the verbal rendering of the English language.
If one were to look up the N-word in the Urban Dictionary, one of the definitions he would find is: "a lazy black ignorant, arrogant person who doesn't have a job and usually tries to screw the system. usually speaks loud. most of them live in the hood and steal. there is a difference between niggers and black people. ... black people are civilized whereas niggers act like animals."
Now, having to say something like "the N-word" instead of actually just going ahead and using the word (as the Urban Dictionary does) seems rather childish to me. 'Something on the order of, "Teacher! Teacher! I hasta go B-word!" None the less, if only to avoid being Paula Deened by the Perception Control police, I will abide by the cultural wisdom and use the term N-word throughout the remainder of this article.
I have known many black people, both Negroes and N-words, during my tour in the Marine Corps and during the more than thirty years I lived and worked in South Arkansas, Northern Louisiana, and Texas. One of the things I have learned is that Negroes use the N-word freely, but they usually use it to designate a black person of questionable character and conduct – somewhat the way a white person might use the term "redneck" or "trailer park trash."
To anyone who has spent any time with black people, there are obvious differences between Negroes and N-words. Negroes are respectful of other people's property. N-words put their feet on other people's furniture. Barack Obama routinely puts his feet on my furniture in the White House. And it pisses me off.
The Negroes I've met over the years were conscientious people – people who would rather overpay their portion at a group lunch than feel guilty that they might not have paid their fair share. The N-words I've known were always taking advantage of the generosity of others – whether that generosity had actually been offered to them of not. Barack and Michelle Obama have spent billions of taxpayer dollars on lavish vacations and sumptuous White House parties for no other reason than that the taxpayers are paying for it.
The Negroes I've known have been responsible people. When they make mistakes – as we all do – they admit it and try to make up for it. The N-words I've known never make mistakes. They are always the victims of someone else's mistakes. Barack Obama has he unique distinction among America's Presidents of never having made a single mistake in six years in office – and he holds the record for being victimized by other people's mistakes.
The Negroes I have know were generally people whose word you could trust. The N-words I've known all lied like – well – like N-words. Barack Hussein Obama has never been caught in a truth in his entire seven yeas of public exposure.
So, how would you judge Barack Hussein Obama on the basis of the above? Is he a Negro?
Or is he an N-word?
