It's just a cruel word, isn't it Treeseed? No matter what the context.

The OED says "nigger toe n. U.S. slang (offensive) (a) a variety of potato (obs.); (b) a Brazil nut." It's also an offensive former name for a kind of freshwater mussel.

treeseed commented on the word niggertoe
I feel the same way, skipvia.
It shouldn't, but it does. I can't think of another word that affects me like this. I suspect it's a product of my upbringing. It was always associated with hate or prejudice.

You mean the word itself bothers you? Simply set down on the screen?
See also nigger toes.You know, most words don't bother me. They're just syllables. Nigger is not one of those. It still bothers me a lot.
