Don't normally comment on blogs, but in this case and at this moment I'd like to because, among other, I believe in supporting truth. Thumbs up, Ms. Chescaleigh! Your did a nice overview of the issue. I'm sure we can get deeper with it, but in consideration of time & tally you did a remarkable job. Consistent with previous videos I've watched of yours, you continue to represent yourself well as a kind-hearted and intelligent "being", female and "black woman". You are articulate and funny with things of substance to share with your audience. Socially sensitive topics you handle nicely without patronizing any group or overly massaging another just to be mainstream. You are a credit to your predecessors. Not to mention looking good while doing it. Your a sight for soar eyes. All three of'em. Please continue to use your powers (via your inherited vast resources of rich melanin) well. Give thx!

Very well said, Chescaleigh. Couldn't agree with you more. I've on occasion had the same argument with others and tried to explain to them the significance of context. Really, context is everything, Of course, that doesn't particularly stop them from feigning ignorance and continuing to argue the "double standard" line. Your response to that specific argument is especially on point and I'm gonna reference it the next time it comes up. Which will be soon, no doubt. Hah hah!

I don't really think it's just a black vs white thing. I think the people who use that word grew up using it. It's a part of the way they talk. My family and friends growing up never said it so I never said it and honestly if I did start saying nigga it just wouldn't sound right. Overall though, I hate that word and I politely ask people not to say it around me.
