How is NI**ER offensive?
Circling the drain: Now “NI**ER” stirs up controversy
Yeah, this story is a bit old – but I still see it cropping up everywhere. I’ll spare the details, but some happy school girls were just playing with the lettering on their shirts (which spelling something else) and some of them posed together with the letters “NI**ER.” Apparently it was the most offensive thing ever.
This stupid shit has caused so much controversy, with calls for action, students who should get expelled, and people fired. Really?
See what bugs me the most is – that because of the asterisks – this is not a word. It’s just “NI**ER.” It does not spell ANYTHING AT ALL.
For those who assumed it spelled “NIGGER” and got angry have NO ONE TO BLAME BUT THEMSELVES AND THEIR STUPID INSECURITIES!
This can also spell other things too, like:
- NICKER (a sound a horse makes)
- NIGHER (i.e., closer)
- NIMMER (a thief, rhymes with “zimmer” coincidentally enough…)
- NIPPER (a form of “kids”)
- NITTER (an insect, see “zimmer” for more…)
To create such controversy and drama in what is supposed to be a free country of strong-willed people is an embarrassment. A definite sign that the circling of the drain is speeding up, and we’re getting closer to a very bad point in time.
Sad that these girls “apologized” to appease anyone. “Get over yourselves” is what I would have said.
It’s apparent people have almost nothing better to do these days, other than find EACH AND EVERY opportunity to flush this country down the tubes. And yet another chink in the armor of “technology” and all the good it was supposed to do for humanity. Ha!
