*start moving on. I say in the sense that the debates over the use of the word are the cause of a lot of frayed tension between black people and non-black, and it’s usually the people who are trying to be respectful that are made to feel frustrated and sidelined. I say that as a white person who despises the word, would never use it in any context, and fully who acknowledges the centuries of abuse black people and people of colour have suffered. I simply cannot see how argument that ‘you can’t say it, but we can’ will bring us closer together and heal the seismic rift (that white people are very much the cause of, may I add).
