Last time I heard the N-word was a week ago.  It was a young black man telling me to “Shoot the (basket)ball, N….!!!”  I’m not black.  It’s like a badge of honor.  You should try to earn one.

I already have a badge.  What you are describing happens between people who’ve developed a rapport with each other.  A familiarity where the sort of banter that takes place on a basketball court can be negotiated accordingly among willing participants.

You and I have no such rapport.  And if this foolishness continues, I assure you, one will not be forthcoming.

Never met the kid before in my life.  I guess he just saw an ally, an equal, and through the REAL foolishness.

You accepted the label.  Others would not.  That’s the negotiation.  It’s up to the individual.  You don’t get to decide for everyone.

I generally don’t like to decide anything for anyone.

  How embarrassing that you even bring that up.

You be embarrassed then.  It happens to me all the time.  I’m afraid you might melt if you hung around me and my black friends for any amount of time.  It’s “Our Word”.

First I’ve heard of her but “It isn’t supremacist or hateful to prefer your own people over others” sure sounds fairly benign and maybe even obvious.  People called Daryl Davis a white supremacist.  I don’t give a crap about her but can someone teach middle school if they belong to the Black Hebrew Israelites or the Black Panthers?
