People need to lighten up seriously. Think if this was reversed and Uriah called Miller a Cracker or Honky. It wouldn't even be an issue at all. The N word while a powerful word because of its past and potential meaning, is one of the biggest double standards there is.

It's because it's closely linked to the not-so-long ago denial of rights and slightly-longer-ago enslavement of black people. So its not really a double standard, its recognition of a horrible double standard that white people used to enforce.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Uneducated white ppl couldn't pronounce 'niger', so they added a 'g' and convinced the world it was a racist term, out of embarrassment for their butchering of the african language.

Mayhem might want to consider visiting schools and showing young people how drugs destroy a person's mind and stability. He may well be a living, breathing, example.

I see both sides. While it was a horrible word the key word is was. The usage has changed drastically and the word is used regularly in movies, music and can be heard regularly in everyday conversations.

Religion, politics, racism....not subjects that I prefer to discuss. It always gets messy and there are always overly sensitive people only both sides.

With that said Mayhem needs to get his act together. I know he had a bad upbringing but he has opportunities to have a good/normal ish life. Good on Hall for stroking him.
