    That's why I'm confused. What's having a Somalian ancestor have to do with whether or not the N-word is offensive or not?

    I don't think that's what he is implying at all.

    Way to move those goal posts, Rob.

    I'm going to be leaving the field now, but you keep on fighting the good fight. I'm sure you'll have the potency of these slurs devalued in no time.

    Unless you're going to have a sign on your head saying "my GREAT granddaddy was Somalian", Black people will take offence.

    Not sure what this means? I disagree with your interpretation, as you disagree with mine. But it's wrong when I do it? Just because it's unpopular, doesn't make it wrong. Sheesh!

    What, so are you Tryna tell me that I've been using a word all this time without knowing that it's offensive cause Ive got some black blood.

    My bad mate, I didn't think that black people would be offended cause black people always call me the N word as well.

    You've got flaws in what you just said man, especially after you backed what Tomsta said about saying racial words regardless of how it was meant.
