Often in debate whether it is about swearing in general or the more heated topic of racism people say " I say the word to take away it's power " or something to that affect but does it really ?
Will using the word ever take away it's power or is this just an excuse to say things such as fuck or bullshit or call people slut , nigga , chink , cracker , bitch .
Is it an excuse or do you really believe using these terms will take away their power , does it make a difference to who or how it is used ?
Is it different for names with historical meaning and heartach attached ?
