The reason these words carry the kick they do is because of their background. Just because you're reapplying contexts or wishy washy definitions doesn't make anything okay.

I can imagine the same exchange happenings decades ago during the rise of civil rights. South Park to the rescue. People like saying it too much to actually stop. But that's okay. That's okay because it doesn't mean a black person anymore. When someone cuts you off in traffic, what do you think? Nigger! It has nothing to do with the color of their skin. Now it means douchebag!

Stupid point. Stupid message.

Funny episode.

I actually pretty much agree with that. I know what they were trying to say, I just didn't agree with it.

But yeah, overall still a very funny episode.
