    please read all of the posts below.

    People who are in the historically  power majority (in our country White and/or Christian and/or Male and/or Straight) have had power of minorities and historically have oppressed them. For them to use these words...such as WHite people using the N word against AA's...harkens back to every aweful thing White people did to AA's.

    People in the power minority use these words amongst themselves often to diffuse the pain they cause. In my mind anyway, it is their business how they use these words.

    People in the power majority cause great pain when they use the words because it is linked to history.
