IDK why. I have a lot of black friends. Most of them dont use it though, which is surpising. Probably because we all play sports and wear preppy stuff. My shcool is probably the only one where a african american wears American Eagle, Hollister, and stuff like that. I am very tan but I mean people dont walk around calling me a brownie or anything like that, and I dont walk up to black ppl and say Whats up n***a. I, actually hate racist people, because in my mind whether your black, white, tan, or blue. Your still a human so you are the same thing as me. Racist people are just bastards with no life. I dont see why they cant like everyone????
