Hopefully I’m pregnant with a girl they they will Hopefully have the equal relationship ya have.

  • I have a 13 month old baby and i am having the second one in about 6-7 weeks… i am gonna get crazy i guess. i have no help and my husband works. ��

  • Funny that they censor other bad words but not the n word I mean I get the topic is that word but if you can have one bad word might as well include the less offensive words lol

  • Its amazing to me that EVERY TELEVISION program can say the n-word with impunity…But let someone dare and think about saying “kike”, “beaner”, “ginny-wop” or “wet back” and they’ll be cancelled before they can finish the sentence…I really wanna know why that is?..Why can one racial slur be accepted on tv but not the others???..and please don’t tell me “well y’all call each other that” bullshit because what I’m talking about is tv censorship and why it’s cool for certain racial slurs to be tolerated and the others aren’t

  • You guys are making jokes about black people putting timestamps and lmao and it’s not funny and I fell really offended you guys are being racist

  • Can black people get offensive if another black man says n-word?
    Edit: why I asked this shit? cause our world is now that stupied that everyone can get offensive by any shit, even by the most innocent shit on earth.
    Even it can be in that way like black man gets offensive cause another black man says n-word or Mexican calls another Mexican a brother-greaser or something with that

  • If you truly knew the origins of the word you would no longer regurgitate the narratives we were all fed…
    NGR in origin meant the “Gods”, the kings, pharaohs…
