by that I mean the Untied States of America, where any white man can walk up and shoot me, say, I was scared of that nigger, but probably some euphemism for nigger because nigger even seems to offend some racists, and it offends a lot of white progressives and liberals, probably lots of niggers too.

Consider me a museum, one with a replica of the Confederate flag, the concept Nigger, and other historical artifacts of our sorry past in this country.

I feel happy when you tell me that my use of nigger offends your sensitive brain; if it didn't I'd worry more than I do.  

Nigger offends me too, but I have to face it, daily face it down in the euphemistic tropes used.  They mean nigger.  I wish they'd simply say, nigger, those nigger sayers who use the euphemistic tropes of "he's not born in America," 'He's Kenyan," "He's a socialist," and other ways of calling him nigger, except nigger never leaves their brains and mouths, because the social fiction followed by racists, less racist, and the seven folk, non racist is not to say nigger in public.

In private maybe.

What offends me most, when folk don't say straight out, nigger. I don't know where I am, I'm confused when racists act racist but don't talk racist.  The society  attempts to kill me with its racist ways, may be less and less each year; it's methods even more fiendish and subtle, but abhors the word, nigger.

Racists bring back your flag for daily conversation, the word with the white man's burden, nigger, which waved for decades.

It'll give the rest of us the direction to aim.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
