Hey, did I tell you?
When I was in Nassau, I heard all kinds o' people referring to themselves and others as 'nigger'. In fact one engineer was telling some of his oldest friends, "I am a sincere nigger. Not the same type of these niggers all up in here."
When I mentioned to my Bahamian friend that it was interesting to hear educated folk of a successful black country referring to one another as niggers, she declared, "It is only in America that nigger is an insult."
