And a n-word is a black person.
You'd get shot.
Just because they're part of our language doesn't mean that they should be used. There are plenty of synonyms that can fill the gap and there are plenty of words that you don't even know about that people say. There are so many words in any language that aren't known to people, but instead of being intelligent and finding new, more intellectual words they swear.
I don't mind swearing usually, when it's used in a place where it doesn't matter if you swear from a social standpoint.
I have decided not to swear unless I am quoting something or singing a song that has swearing in it. Even then I try not to. I just think it's a lot easier to not swear at all, then you won't have the chance of slipping up in situations where you shouldn't.
My girlfriend dropped the f-bomb several times in front of her parents last year after coming back from two weeks of college. It's like the plague there.
