Don't agree at all from my background of living 28 years in Berlin/Germany, knowing a lot of poc's here who would tell you the same, including my father.Nobody of them would also say that Bimbo is way worse. Did i get called Bimbo in my life? sure, but Neger was and is Nr.1 slur in my view. From Negerkind to "oller" Kackneger etc.

Even if you have some empircal data or deep FORSA researches undermining your claim, it would not change my view that "neger" = is just the german "nigger" in terms of slur nowadays no matter how inoffensive it was in the past in Germany/Switzerland/Austria.
I'm not sure how it is in Germany, but in the Netherlands I think it's more about race/ethnicity + bad adjective (genitals, diseases, excrement) that makes it insulting. Dutch ethnic slurs against Turks, Jews or Moroccans for example mostly includes the normal word of the ethnicity. I don't now any Dutch slur for a Turk of a Jew that doesn't use the word 'Turk' or 'Jood' (Jew). The same happened in the case of black people with 'neger', where the 'neger' part was a neutral, non insulting word, but the insult came from the use of the adjectives. It has become more taboo in it self, but I would still argue that the word 'neger' in Germanic languages doesn't come close to the connotation of 'nigger' , mainly because most of the time it is used with adjectives to make it stronger, while 'nigger' can be one of the most terrible insults without the need of an adjective.

Edit: 'Bimbo' in Dutch is a slur for a woman by the way, a bit like 'slut'.

Lol. Bump a two year old thread with a moronic post, and a dumber username.
And that was your first post?

You'll be a star here in no time.
It's not really a dumb post. The word nigger/nigga doesn't have nearly the same weight in the rest of the world has it does in the US. Nobody gives a shit if you say it in my country.

"I want my country N free"
Yea, they knew what they were saying. With the internet and movies, everybody knows the meaning of the word.
The only difference is that some places don't have a large enough black population for a controversy to arise when racism happens.

I’ve only had few interactions over at Era. That forum moves fast! People have been nice to me though. Just sayin
-Post a thread about how you watch the UFC and see how many users chastise you for toxic masculinity or promoting violence on women.
-Create a thread about Post Malone, see how many users come in and chastise you because Post is a culture vulture that steals black culture and is a bad stinky person because he dares to rap.
-Post a thread about how you watch PewDiePie and see how quickly you get perma banned for promoting Nazi ideology.

Better yet post a thread about how white men are basically shit and have no place in modern culture.

You might know the meaning of the word, but there's no culture around it to make it actually mean anything. Nobody cares.
Also saying "the n word" is stupid, everybody know you mean nigger/nigga so whats the point, people are still going to use the term, now they just have to use a replacement that means the exact same thing.

Saying that 'our country should be free of your kind' always has meaning.
Had the racist said 'black people instead, it would have been just as disgusting and racist.

Since we’re talking about “black people” and slavery, I don’t think we have an accurate history of slavery in this country. If the natives were here, growing crops, tending the land, living as natives would, then why would you kill all the natives and bring a whole different set of slaves to then do the work that the natives were already doing? I think “blacks” were here already along with the “natives”.

? I'm not arguing about the comment "I want my country N free", I'm arguing about the use of the word nigga in general and how it really has little to no cultural meaning outside the us and nobody really gives a shit if you use it.

Think about it. Does that make sense to you? Come to land you don’t know, kill everyone who knows how to work the land, then bring over people you hate that don’t know how to work the land. 🤔 the whole story is pretty stupid when you think about it. There are blacks in the south who will tell you their great grandparents were here already and there was a divide between them and the ones who were brought here.

This example stood out to me since I’m an MMA fan myself. Is this something you experienced yourself? I don’t really go to ResetEra much but just looked there and they still seem to have a pretty healthy MMA community thread. I miss the one here.

I’ve only posted on Era like 5x. Mostly just NFL and MMA talk. Again a very limited experience, I just felt like sharing that the glance I had was friendly.

Forum just moves so fast tho. Hard to have a discussion, it seemed like

I disagree.
If you know enough to use the word, you know why you're using it. We're not in the habit of using words we don't know the meaning of.

Also, could you point out some black people who don't mind being called the N word in foreign countries.

Well first of all the word is used in music all the fucking time so everyone knows the word anyway, you don't need to know the history behind it to use it.
Even if you do it's not your countries history, words can change their meanings over time, and right now, people use nigga like they bro where I'm from.

Wth do you want, am I supposed to show you friends of mine who could give a fuck?

Did you watch? I had that thought probably a year ago and sure enough it was all over the place. I wish I could find the video of this old guy talking about it tho. Supposedly the few that were brought here didn’t get along very well with the blacks that were already here at all. The part where the ship manifests not matching what we’ve been told is fascinating too. The truth is there. You just have to put all the pieces together. No one does that though. We just swallow what we’re told.

Yeah I watched. I can’t believe he’s sincere.

This is similar to flat earth bullshit

So like me, he’s “trolling”? 🙄😩atleast you gave it a watch. Come on. Tell me it doesn’t make too much sense. Even when you look at the population of blacks today, the numbers don’t make sense when you trace them back to the days of slavery. The DNA makes no sense. I honesty think when we tick off “African American” on any kind of documentation, you’re basically unknowingly admitting that you don’t know your history and are incapable of figuring it out. “Nigger” was used as a derogatory term for the ignorant. People ignorant of their real history.

Were you there to prove that it actually happened, howeverLike the holocaust...
.
So Holocaust never happened, and white people never brought black people to America over from Africa as slaves?

I just want to make sure I’m on the level.

(Looks around waiting for someone to help)

White people did bring Africans over, just far fewer and enough to support a narrative, I believe the holocaust happened but that may be exaggerated as well. The part that people miss about that one is that hitler was a “Jew” just the wrong kind. Nazi comes from ashkenazi, or as scripture says those who call themselves Jews but aren’t. Aren’t these white supremacists rolling around always calling themselves Gods chosen ones? I was researching a little about the amalekites yesterday and it seems they may be the Germans of today.

Back from the dead. Necro bump.

Seriously even though OP is banned, some countries sadly just flat out don’t give a fuck when it comes to racism. It’s really bad that this still happens regularly.

different places have different demographics, different tolerances for public displays of racism. if they were older people that is even more likely. i've only ever heard white people say it who were from the boomer or older generations. i've never really heard the n word in public.

however i have personally been belittled & laughed at by redneck jerks & black kids alike. occasionally in public people are rude as fuck and you got to just accept it for the better of society. sometimes i get accosted for being short or looking like a freak so i know it does not feel good to be receiving shit in public.

i have never been to Bulgaria but i find it interesting that some of the costume design from the pagan festivals was possibly appropriated & perverted by the kkk:
