The N-word is a racist foreign term for Black people, given to them by white people. This word is deliberately no longer written out so as not to perpetuate racism. It is meant to be understood here as representative of other racist and discriminatory terms, such as the antiziganist G****.

Activist and author Tupoka Ogette says of the insistence on using the N-word, “There is no language police or censorship. You can and may say anything. But you must then also be willing […] to take responsibility for your own speech. If you use the N-word, do it with the awareness that you are consciously being racist and hurting people.”
