    If Richard Pryor wants to call Chevy Chase names, then it's fine to call him a Nigger in response. Granted, the segment was trying to get people more adjusted to socializing between Ebony and Ivory, but it can be steered to better results.

    I don't. Such talk is for low-IQ edgetards and old people. I am not old, any young person who makes a big point of using ethnic slurs that they know are widely seen as inappropriate and grossly offensive is a fucking moron, and probably doesn't have any real friends. Using ethnic slurs just to make a point isn't impressive, it's just obnoxious, and pathetic. I also actually care a bit about being taken seriously, and about having a good image. If I want people to listen to my arguments I won't start littering my sentences with "kike", "nigger", "spick" etc.

    I might use an ethnic slur when driving. We have a local mix of East Indians and Mexican drivers who don't understand the purpose of a gas pedal. It is used for accelerating the car to catch up with fast moving traffic and to get out of other driver's way. I can tolerate some poor driving, but it has reached ridiculous levels. I'm so tired of compensating for other driver's poor mistakes that can range 1-3 per day. I watch my tongue too if others are around and don't make a habit of using slurs unless they earned it through a near wreck.

    I don't and I couldn't see any point in doing so. Every verbalised rejection of mine is a product of (more or less) serious thought and I for sure would not want to devaluate myself by simply attacking others. Plus, as Sigebrond wrote, it's not impressive by any means.
    "All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible."

    I used them seldomly;
    mainly because there hadn't been many "minorities" around my places
    until the Millennium.

    Polakk or Polack was one I used frankly since the second half of the 1990s,
    when referring to people from Poland.
    The Poles in Germany have a similar reputation as the Mexicans have in the USA, I guess.

    One has to consider though, that 'Polak' and 'Polakker' are common used words
    im newspapers in Denmark :

    På få år er polakker blevet den største indvandrergruppe.
    I alt boede der pr. 1. januar 2015 34.537 polske indvandrere og 4.928 efterkommere i Danmark.
    I 2003 - året før EUs udvidelse - boede der 10.692 polske invandrere og 2.113 efterkommere.
    https://www.b.dk/nationalt/polakker-...-de-bliver-her

    In Denmark workmates called Muslims "Yelle-Aper" Scream-Monkeys,
    I had none at that time for them in the mid-90s;
    there hadn't been polacks around at that time.
    Greenlanders had a bad reputation in Denmark once,
    because leaching off wellfare and drinking alcoholics on the market places in Copenhagen.

    But now I call the Muslims 'Muselukks' , because they are lucky to be fed
    in our societies.

    And a Banker I call a "Bankster" .

    I use slurs for academics, too, like "Egghead" .


    And about cursing other people,
    one can find it in the Old Testament :
    For the curse, these shall stand on Mount Ebal:
    Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali.
    5TH Moses 27:12,13 Deuteronomy.

    In this case Zebulon means the constellation Capricorn;
    with Ruben = Pisces, Gad (God?) = Aquarius, Asher = Scorpius, Dan = Virgo, Naphtali = Sagittarius.

    My constellations should bless these immigrants, but I can not afford it financially.
    Simple as that !
    Mk 10:18 What do you call me a good master, no-one is good .
