Oh right.. that Barkley guy who never won a championship and drove himself right out of the city of Philadelphia, throwing everyone under the bus except himself.
The word "nigger" no matter how you use it or in what atmosphere you use it, is a derogatory term. There is absolutely nothing positive about the use of that word.
Quite a few people disagree with you. The word has actually lost a lot of it's power as well, due to people no longer taking it as seriously as you seem to take it. That doesn't excuse it being used in a derogatory manner, mind you. But that word is no longer exclusively used that way.
