"The presumptive 2020 Democrat presidential nominee, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, used the N-word 13 times in a 1985 hearing series, U.S. Senate transcripts reveal."

The media will laugh it off, just wait.

Should I even bother to look up the context or will I be wasting my time?

You think there's context when a
White guy uses the N word? Really?
So under what circumstances
would it be OK for Trump to use
it?

That's what I thought..

How about the context when you are quoting from a memo written by somebody else?

So if Trump said the N word
13 times quoting from a memo,
that would be OK? We both
know the medias head would
explode. There is no 'context'
when it come to the N word
if you're White.

There was a time when it was still okay to use it as part of a discussion, not as a slur.

Took me awhile to find when it changed. "The euphemism the N-word became mainstream American English usage during the racially contentious O. J. Simpson murder case in 1995. "

That's apparently when saying the word in full form changed over to the "n word." That's well after 1985.

I don't remember the word ever being acceptable in good company in my lifetime. Biden had no need to use it multiple times when everyone obviously knew what he was addressing. His record is not exactly clean on the issues of race.
