That's was in the 1800's, not today nor before the 1800's. Plus, blacks AREN'T the only race that were called the N word. Irish, asians, arabs, mexicans, women, and some other races were called the N word. In order to understand what the N word means, you must look up its meaning.

Actually the prefix is suppose to describe the Nationality of origin. Africa isn't a Nation, it's a continent. "Blacks" in America have been called Nigger, Negro, Colored, Afro-American, African-American, Ethiopian (at least I know that was popular in the Hampton Roads Area of VA), etc. As a collective we don't know our Nation of origin. According to my research, a vast population of us were here before the Native Americans arrived.

I've never heard of an Asian-American, but I have heard of Korean-American, Chinese-American, etc.

As far as majority and minority goes, the vast majority of humans on the planet are Brown skinned women. The vast minority on the planet are pale skined men. In this country things are on top of their heads but you can blame genocide for that, and it continues.

Divide and concur. We're all the same in my eyes, but I have to use other people's eyes from time to time to deal with this bass-ackwards society.

Exactly. Some legends state that the Red Man's origins are in the Americas.

I'm more willing to believe that humans migrated from Africa into Europe and Asia over a period of thousands of years, and during the last ice age a population of hunters followed prehistoric game across a ice/land bridge in the present-day Bering Strait into the Americas than a story about people emerging from the center of the earth.

I did say some legends [people], right. If humans were here duringn Pangea then it could be true. I don't know. I still havn't read "God Is Red" yet and other Native American religious/legendary text indebt.

I follow your line of thought, just wanted to offer another thought.

In the black community: The only NIGGAZ out here are so called gangster or wanna be gangsters( this includes hustler & thugz)

So when you here somone identify himself or herself as GANGSTER, HUSTLER or THUG you find yourself a NIGGA
