Only if you are actually speaking Spanish. In English it is a racial slur. Such slurs are NEVER acceptable imo.

Its not a racial slur. Its an outdated term in the US. Just like Oriental is not a slur but its an outdated term

It is used as a racial slur around here by ignorant rednecks who know they can't say the other one. So to me it is a racial slur...

But I feel that hate speech of any kind, while allowed and protected by the first amendment, isn't acceptable. I'll defend your right to say abhorrent shit, but I won't respect you for it.

Just like attacking abuse victims for having ptsd. You have the legal right to do it, but it makes you an immoral person not worthy of respect.

What if you're black?

Racial slurs are never acceptable. Homophobic slurs are never acceptable. Gender based slurs are never acceptable.

Especially when you are using them to demean others...

Speak for your fucking self. My twink ass has been called a f** and threatened with violence my whole life and if I want to use that word Im damn well gonna. You have no place to tell a black person what they can and cannot say. Fuck outta here.

So my understanding is that if you are angry with a gay person, you would call them a f**? Regardless of the reason youre mad? And thats ok because you have been called that word?

If you have never been subject to the violence associated with a slur you have no place perpetuating its usage.

This is a bad route to take

Like yeah, generally speaking, it's significantly less of a faux pas for slurs to be used by the demographic the slur is aimed at, but you don't want to aggressively defend your right to use a slur

I'm not talking about CNN or this incident in general in that post, I'm just addressing the whole "Why can't I say it? NO ONE should be allowed to say it!"

Yeah, in a professional environment, you shouldn't be using those words at all. But I'm more talking about in slang, informal communication

The context is generally different. The 'a' variation is always used as a synonym for 'man' or 'homie', while the 'er' version is always used in some type of strong hateful manner. This isn't me saying "say the 'a' version all you want" but simply explaining the difference in context
