Are you finished with seeing people lose their jobs for saying the forbidden word, Nigger? It's only forbidden if you aren't a comedian or if you're not black. Of course there's a slight variation in pop culture. 'Nigger' becomes 'nigga.' But in more serious dramas such as HBO's "The Wire", it's 'nigger.'
Does anyone really think that the social pressure to avoid the explicit use of the word 'nigger' by replacing it with the 'N-word' or by obfuscating it by writing it 'ni*ger' or some such variation still does not convey in the minds of everbody the word 'nigger?'
So what's the purpose of the ban of the word?
The word-ban is clearly a double standard reinforced by political correctness and the media, but why? It's obedience training for the domesticated herd. The enforcement of this word-ban is to train people to conform to the social pressure of political correctness. It's using a cattle prod on humans to herd them. It's training humans to be Pavlov's dog - to elicit predicable reactions to stimuli.

• 'Nigger' the word: a brief history / African American Registry
"The history of the word nigger is often traced to the Latin word niger, meaning Black. This word became the noun, Negro (Black person) in English, and simply the color Black in Spanish and Portuguese. In early modern French, niger became negre and, later, negress (Black woman) was unmistakably a part of language history. One can compare to negre the derogatory nigger and earlier English substitutes such as negar, neegar, neger, and niggor that developed into its lexico-semantic true version in English. It is probable that nigger is a phonetic spelling of the White Southern mispronunciation of Negro."
