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.
Different groups took words meant to be hurtful and demeaning and basically changed the meanings of those words, that's why two gay guys can call each other "fag" or two women can call each other the B-Word or the C-word or two blacks can call each other the N-word or rather nigga and it's cool, but it seems that it mostly bothers the people who wish to use those words in a derogatory manner i.e. the racists, the sexists, and the homophobes, who are always asking "how come blacks can call each other nigger but I csn't?
You know I have never had the desire to call an italian a "wop" nor does it bother me that they may call each other that, same goes for a latino should they choose to use the term "wetback" to each other or anyone else who took a negative and turned it into a positive. BUT since it gives the racists in the world a chance to call us hypocrites because we took a little power away from them then I guess it's best not to use it period.
