Just had an argument in the pub
Is it racist if a black lad calls a black lad the n word and the black lad called it is offended?
I said it is, apparently I'm insane
No, I don't think it is, it was likely not meant as an insult, sounds like just a misjudgsment of the situation, he might be used to using the word amongst other black mates and just thought it was ok.
Once the other lad says he uncomfortable with it then he should stop calling him it.
He's entitled to be offended, but so is everybody for anything.
Just because he's offended doesn't mean he can stop the lad saying it to anyone else.
Personally I don't think blacking up is racist if it's hero worship.
It is racist, but it doesn't necessarily mean the person who's done is a racist.
Doing it 1 time can be put down to stupidness and naivety, more than once (especially after being told your a stupid twat the first time) then the person is a racist.
