    N word

    I was walking out the main stand and there was a group of boys talking about game and casually slipped in the N word about a rangers player. It was along the lines of ĎAye when the ******** was running doon the wing....í they were about 20 yards behind and I was utterly perplexed and not sure I heard right until a boy beside me looked at me and we were gobsmacked he then slipped it in again in another sentence as casual as you like and I turned round and shouted he was an utter embarrassment and should be ashamed of himself. I was absolutely boiling with rage. Who the ****** are these Neanderthals? Itís also the reason why racism will unfortunately never be wiped out. Actual said it like it was normal. Utter ****bag and probably the same phanny that threw the bottle. Do not need people like that in our support away and F off and never come back

    You get it in all walks of life, casual racism is absolutely rife, our support are not immune we have some absolute knuckle draggers.

    I remember many years back sitting in the old North Stand listening to some old goat Hibs fan call Kevin Harper a n***** repeatedly while his stupid son sat by and said nothing.

    Some things sadly will never change.

    The same ****s with the attitude that throwing a bottle is acceptable at a football stadium.

    And right after 90 odd minutes listening to thousands of adults singing about killing Catholics. What a world we live in

    The use of that type of language has been encouraged by the incumbent at No 10 and racism and xenophobia are generally on the rise. We have a small minority of cretins who no doubt will all have a ticket for Tiny and make a tit of themselves

    I agree, probably didnít phrase that the best. No doubt the people that said it would shrug it off as casual though.

    Society has people with prejudices of all kinds, including racists.

    As much as we'd like it to be different, no football team's support will ever be immune.

    I get what you were meaning, it was used casually, which is probably more alarming than somebody saying it for shock value etc.

    Saying such a disgusting, offensive and racist word so casually is the sign of someone who isn't aware of what a bigoted prick they are, or they are and they've made peace with it. Either way, it's a disgrace.

    Unless Iím having a woosh moment, I donít read that as deflecting. Racism and sectarianism are one and the same in most decent folksí book.

    I donít think he was trying to deflect it at all

    Itís a relevant point, at football in general people seem to think itís totally acceptable to do/say totally unacceptable things. Whether itís the N bomb, sectarian, homophobic or probably plenty other things I canít think of off the top of my head and whether itís Hibs, Hearts, Rangers, Celtic or whoever else, every club has them and more needs to be done to be stamped out.

    The N word is used heavily by US black artists in hip and rap. Maybe that is where the young team are picking it up from.

    Not making apology for their behaviour. The use of the n word is certainly a no no for older generations and was used as a racist slur. But for younger people they may not be aware of these conotations and are only familiar of the word through rap and hip hop. Being in Scotland they may not be aware of who can and cannot use the word in US youth culture without causing offence. The language of US black youth has certainly slipped into our youth's vocabulary. So for an older person using the word is racist but for a young person that may not be the case.

    Take the c word which is deeply offensive to women. But is used such as he is good c. He's fast c. Personally because I am older I would never use either word because of their meaning from my era when growing up.

    It's no secret that the N Bomb is a nasty racist slur and Scots teens don't grow up in so much of a bubble that this would pass them by. Well done the OP for shouting him out on it. Stupid Cs like that need to learn it's not acceptable

    Your reply is very uninformed and does take account of the cultural shift in the UK's youth. See the story below:

    It seems itís ok for rappers to slip it into their lyrics though. Whatís that all about?

    Itís not on. Fair play to the OP for saying something. Iím not sure I would.

    Inexcusable behaviour. It's been years since I've heard that word in public.

    Presumably they are too stupid to know they are not black hip hop artists? It's all about context, and they must have been extremely poor school attenders to have missed the fact the word is offensive.

    I'm not buying that for a second. The chances of spotty white Scottish youth not knowing that it's an offensive racist term are zero in the social media age. They will have seen people using it and being called out on it on Facebook, Twitter etc. They will have been lectured on it at school. They will have been confronted about it or seen others confronted about it by peers at school. They would have had to have led a spectacularly sheltered life not to know that it is a racist term.

    And they would also have to have been completely unaware of that fact that in the popular culture they consume on screen and in music the only people using that term are black. Then on top of that they would have to have no mirrors at home to be unaware that they themselves are not black.

    In my opinion, all the **** with Brexit has given the racists carte blanche to come out with this kind of thing.

    To have a little bit of context to this there is a mixed race rapper who imo made one of the best songs to cover the whole race issue I'm no racist is the song title. The N word was first used as a term of endearment between blacks in the days of slavery however whites used it as a term to keep them oppressed. Yes I get that it is used heavily in alot of hop hop rap but that is the same as uk grime artists using the word man it has no connotations between blacks as it would if used between a white man and a black man because of the history. Could it be the that youth of today see it as a term to use because of the way it is used in the genre possibly but it is no excuse.

    Also as far as I'm aware there is two ways in which it is said american artists end it with an A the racist term is ended with an ER how it is different and what's separates them I have no idea

    Racists donít need an excuse to be racist.

    Blaming Brexit is just bull****!

    Brexit was never about racism, it was about protectionism.
