It certainly is not okay that blacks call each other “Nigger” or “Nigga”, (no difference by the way) because of the damage it does to their own community’s contribution to the American experience. Thinking along those lines i do not believe however, in any restrictions on free speech whatsoever as a government edict or use as a political tool.
If the black community really cared about that heinous word, it would be taught from early on to their children that it is unacceptable and they would not support any form of art that uses it so flippantly.
The real issue with the use of the word “nigger”, and who can and cannot use it is one of power over and control of an imagined enemy.
Those offended by the word must first attempt to eradicate it through education within their own community.
