    I don't know. Based on what protean's been telling us, it may have been an expression of solidarity.

    I think the rationale is that when you're impervious to insults, you get twice as many compliments. Or more, as the case may be....

    No, in my opinion that was the perfect response to give to such a comically ironic insult.

    (taking into account the fact that I never otherwise use the word and that I'm of Indian origin?)
    Pfffffft....reminds me of playing on the school playground...Might be a little immature, but have at it...

    No government should try to forbid people from saying anything. Like I said before, mutual respect needs to develop naturally, or you can just forget it.

    Hehehe...yep...If you insult a person one way or another, it does not matter. An insult is an insult. What goes around, comes around.

    EXACTLY!!!

    My grandmother used to tell me, "If someone says something mean, let it roll off you like water off a duck's back." Turn it around, make it into a joke like Samuel did. Or turn the attention on THEM somehow. Make them squirm, if that is your wish.

    But please do not think that forbidding a word will change ANYTHING!!! Because it surely will NOT.

    If they realize that the insult does not bother you or phase you, they will stop trying to get attention. If they know it bothers you or if they are immature enough, they will do it DELIBERATELY just because they KNOW it is FORBIDDEN. Pfft.

    Something about the sarcastic tone of this post does not sit well with me at all.

    I am going to have to disagree with this sentiment.

    Not all insults are created, received and distributed equally.

    There are superficial insults and there are personal, below-the-belt insults, in effect, the former barely stings whereas the latter hurts feelings and potentially ends friendships.

    Maybe so, maybe no. You've shown how crazy this word is. It can mean a lot of things. Don't latch onto one meaning or one way black people use it amongst ourselves. That's what I've been trying to say this whole time, amongst black people it can mean many things. How many different things can it mean when used by white people towards black people? Virtually all of the interpretations I can think of are negative, but if you can give me some neutral or positive situations when white people say nigger to black people I'd really like to know them.

    I meant it earnestly. I mean, what black person would use the term "sand nigger" as a pejorative, as though that were somehow worse than the non-sand kind?

    Um, the one that Samuel came across, apparently.

    I would find it a little disrespectful to the millions of non-ignorant black people who were not there insulting Samuel, but they didn't hear it, obviously. I always like to keep my insults focused on the individual at hand.
