Maybe not in Germany, but possibly in countries like France, and the Netherlands, and other former colonisers like that (which had slaves, I know Germany had brief colonies in the later 19th and early 20th century but they didn't have slaves).
Yeah and it stupid because we don't even have anything to do with it. Also there are similiar words like "neger" (I think its the same in german aswell) which wasn't even offensive back in the day but now it's made out to be the same as nigger, not that I care that much but it is what it is
Blacks have been called "niggers" back in the days by white people.
Then saying it became illegal for white people, so blacks started to flex and kept using this word, while using the excuse that it is their "culture". Now, many generations past the słave owners, the word is still illegal and the flexing continues. Black people are fighting racism by using that word and not even allowing whites to quote it. How fucking smart.
No one cares in Argentina, the closest word in spanish would be negro i think but we also use it as a nickname here.
It can be an insult but depends on the context and the way you say it, and most of the time it doesn't even refers to an actual black person.
I feel like people care a bit too much in Finland. It's gone to the point where the word that was used to describe people from Africa (Neekeri) has now been made into an insult, and on par with the actual "n-word" despite "Neekeri" having no history behind it, and it was used in the same way as "Negro" in Spain and Portugal.
