I meant with your complexion and gorgeous head of curls you could pass for Italian. Ciao, Bella.
To my knowledge, I'm not aware of any Moorish ancestry and if I have it, it would be the generation before my grandparents. However, I very well could have it. Italians have definitely been depicted negatively in various movies. I just chose long ago not to let it bother me. Although, I was in a job interview one time and the guy interviewing me had an Italian last name. He made a reference to us sharing a commonality of being "Italian-American." I didn't say anything back but I thought, "Dude, enough of the hyphenation before the word American. Just call us 'American and be done with it."
Relavant to some black households teaching that the word n***er is not a bad word, well that's fine, just don't complain when someone else uses it. My view on the word D*** stems from the fact that when my dad was in the Air Force, he had the word tattooed on his upper arm. I guess that's why I just let it roll off my back when I hear it -- even from other nationalities. W**, however, I have been called -- and let's just say I fire back at the other person when I hear it.
Oh @Korkscrew how I love how you broke this down! everything you said was exactly what i was thinking. I don't use the word on my vocabulary because i find the word disrespectful and offensive. I hate of this double-standard some blacks have created in their minds "we can say it ya'll can't" mentality. The n word or any racial slur shouldn't be use because the are used as insults to one heritage/ethnicity. Hopefully people will stop being ignorant to certain things.
