The ‘N’-Word: A Controversial Term That Should be Off-Limits to All!

Since the advent of political correctness, there has been discussion over the use of the n-word. The black community has managed to reclaim the slur and use it as a term of endearment despite the n-troubling word’s and oppressive past. This is exactly why people of the black community can say this word freely.

The n-word is mainly utilized in rap music and as the punchline of provocative jokes in today’s culture. Today’s youth and college students are at a perfect age for popular rap and pop culture songs. It’s common for college students to have AirPods or less expensive wired headphones tucked deep inside their eardrums. It’s reasonable to suppose that not everyone is listening to Kanye’s latest Gospel album. But the point is, the n-word can be heard or read easily, but that does not give anyone permission to use it.

Many people think that white people shouldn’t use the n-word, while others think it should be banned entirely. This has been an on-going discourse for as long as I can remember now. There is a belief that the word has lost its negative connotation as a result of its widespread use in contemporary culture. That way of thinking is incorrect since there wouldn’t be any tweets or videos of individuals using the n-word forcefully at black people. Additionally, there wouldn’t be a great deal of backlash against people who use the word. People wouldn’t be fired or disciplined for using the n-word in previous social media posts if it were merely a word. Its influence is further demonstrated by the need for censorship whenever this word is used. The n-word still has the same effect now even though the black community has changed how it is perceived, as it did years ago.

But the pressing question is, should everyone, regardless of ethnicity, be banned from using the N-word?

No matter the context, the word itself is offensive, and many believe this call for its elimination from the English language. Eradicationists conflate the word’s formal meaning with its frequent use as a slur that disrespects persons of black African origin and casts them in a negative light. Being called the N-word was such an unpleasant word; it was meant to humiliate them and to make whatever standing they had in society relative to white people evident. Many African-American forebears have experienced so much suffering and discrimination as a result of racism. Whatever you want to call it—reclamation—you shouldn’t utilize it.

Racism may not be as pervasive as it once was, yet it still has an impact on minorities frequently. it is wrong and insulting to use the n-word. Avoiding the use of a foul, demeaning slur in any situation should be simply out of respect for an entire race. Nobody will ever say that while appearing cool or with the same motives. It is simple to control your behavior and get on with your day.
