      So if a white guy is singing a rap song, word for word [you know what i'm getting at] would you have a problem with it. Would it somehow be worse than a black guy singing it.

    No. The word "nigger/nigga" is no longer really used as a racial slur against blacks in pop culture today. In the same way, the words "gay" or "fag" are no longer really used as slurs against homosexuals. These words have taken on new meanings in today's culture.

WTF?! This could not be further from the truth. And unless you're in Britain (or one of those places) and talking about a cigarette, the f-word for a gay person is still a slur.

I could easily go on...

    I'm trying to think of the last mainstream song that used the word "nigga" in it. Gold Digger by Kayne West? Then again, rap is pretty much dead.

First time I heard someone say that was back in the late 80s. It's no more true now than it was then. Half of the current Top 10 is rap.
