: British TV is presently screening a documentary about 'Big Ron' Atkinson - the guy who described Marcel Dessailly as a "fkg thick lazy [word removed in order to comply with Google's Publisher Policy]" - so they took him to the USA to discuss the word. The discussion included whether '[word removed in order to comply with Google's Publisher Policy]' could be acceptably used by whites. Can anybody think of any examples of whether there are other words or phrases that only some people are allowed to use?

: I like words, but I don't like that word and would not use it in anything other than sensible discussion or v. carefully in very heavy irony. However, I find it strange that ANY words are banned from a whole group. what do other people think?

In the United States, I can't think of any instance where a white person could use the [word removed in order to comply with Google's Publisher Policy]. Ever, ever, ever. Not even in jest to a close friend.
