”I'm 32 years old and I've been called nig-ger and ho and bytch PLENTY, starting as a YOUNG girl of 14 or 15 or so. MORE TIMES THAN I CAN COUNT. USUALLY BY STRANGERS WHO DIDN'T KNOW MY NAME. And I SWEAR to you no white man EVER called me that. They may have felt it or wanted to or whatever, but they didn't disrespect me by calling me that.”

Good point. Unfortunately, many Negros don’t understand this. An entrenched rigorously enforced double standard has them believing they can use the “n” word with total impunity and refer to black women (and all women for that matter) with derisive language and daily degrade them in a hip-hop culture of misogyny while hysterically screaming at others who may traverse similar terrain. The hypocrisy and double standards of Negroes is like festering open wound.

”And again, get it into your HEADS.....stop trying to rationalize it to make it OK JUST FOR YOU. We don't want to hear it from ANYONE....All your BS dancing around is just "well, if they say it once, OF COURSE IT'S OK IF WE CALL YOU THAT." We don't care who calls us that....NONE OF YOU have the right to disrespect us.”

I agree. Your point is well made. Unfortunately, Negros believe it is fine to use racist language and sexist epitaphs with complete immunity while foaming at the mouth with indignation and shouting “foul” at the top of their lungs when others use like language. It’s OK for me but not for thee! End of subject…..
