  •  As part of another diary (4.00)
    the one in my sig line, I explained that I had lived with a black man for several years.  In that time I learned to take his word for what he found offensive even when I couldn't understand.  As a white woman, who am I to say what his experience is?
    I know that some people use the "N" (I hate to even type it)word as a way to difuse it.  But Chris never used the word.  Even at 23 he didn't think that was clever or liberating.  I never heard him use the word once except one time when relating a very painful memory to me. Even then he spit it out like poison.
    As a feminist I guess there are probably women who think it is funny to get together and have "Bitches lunch out", but I feel as Chris did ( and I am sure at 31 still does), it's not a crowd I am interested in hanging with.
