There is no reason that you should use that word other than to be offensive unless it's in context like.... I'm reading to kill a mockingbird out loud. Calling someone either of those words can be taken as offensive because they sole reason for existing anymore is to be derogatory. I don't know why people are so willing to overlook the offensiveness of a word because hey, the 5 people that I talk to and myself don't care about the long lineage of this words hate. I have seen an African American almost in tears for someone using the n word, so yea, I'm not black, but I know that it's not something that several people of that ethnicity want to here all the time. Same thing with the f word, I think when you get older Afro, you will understand how asinine your thought process was in your previous statement.
Edit: by the way you never said anything about drinking bleach either. So before you go around making inane statements like I should learn to read, you should actually look at the context of my quotes.
