I’m sure it got rave reviews. I’m also sure a TV show about white male gamers will have a lot saying “u wot m8?” “get rekt” but that doesn’t mean all white people talk like that. Black kid says it to his black momma? No. Black student says it to black teacher? No. Black employer can call black employee a lazy n? No.

*I* don’t care who uses what word. I know different social classes use it. It’s common among hispanic youth as well as it is among black rap artists and black entertainers, black kids say it to each other in various contexts and some carry that through to adulthood among the same social circles.

I grew up in a community next to areas with a lot of black people who talk in AAVE (called “ebonics” at the time). I’ve been an honorary n because I’m one of those “we all bleed the same blood” type of people.

But I’m no authority. I just know that I don’t use it. I was trained to see it in the same way saying “m-fer” a lot is.
