This particular topic has been swirling around in my mind for years and now I feel that the time has arrived for me to finally speak on it. As you can see, the title to this piece is (WORDS) and I want to speak about the power that people give to them.. What exactly are they except a means of which we communicate and interact with one another for whatever the purpose may be. They are fundamental and primarily essential to our understanding and learning but otherwise are not relevant...However, there are those people in the world who understand the power that words can have and will not hesitate to use them as a tool to divide, control, manipulate and exploit... So Beware! continue

Words have power. Words will get you love, a beat down, or killed.
Don't listen to this brother? and start saying the wrong words.
Words are powerful.

No, my sister, words are not powerful, it is the way people receive and react to them that gives them power. Words will not get you love, a beat down or killed. It is the actions of people that will do these things..Example; Just simply saying I love you is not enough, it has to be expressed in so many other ways, such as being attentive, supportive, caring, nurturing and most of all listening.. Words can communicate that love but the actions demonstrate or express it and you being a woman should know this.
Clearly you misunderstood the post.. I am not advocating or promoting the use of these words that folks may find offensive. I'm talking about not allowing to them to hurt you emotionally thus taking away their sting and power...Folks can choose to do either one just as they can choose to listen to my words or not. They don't need some one telling them not too....

My experience with people using the wrong words have resulted in the police becoming involved. If someone, white, calls me the "N" word again we gone have a problem, again.
I'm not speaking from the article. I'm talking real life.
Yes, folk can choose to do/say whatever they want, as long as they are aware of the possible consequences of their words.
I'm speaking from personal experience, not what ifs......
I'm at the grocery store on Sat. In the checkout line. Putting grocery on counter, I notice I've forgotten something, and mutter to myself, softly, damnnn.
The Hispanic or Latino cashier opens his big mouth and tells me "I don't allow cursing in my line. What? #1, I wasn't talking to him. #2 I was not even facing him when I said damnnn. I tell him, politely, I wasn't talking to you. He continues, I'm just telling you I don't allow cursing in my line. He continues to scold me about cursing. And he's not ringing up my groceries.
OK, because of previous encounters, Ima handle this differently.
I began to put my grocery back in my basket. Stupid ask me, what are you doing? I tell him "you giving me bad energy, I I don't want you touching my grocery. And, I'm a GAWoman, and don't need you telling me what I cannot say". Im walking away and big mouth is still talking.
He was new, or he would have known regular customer.
I reported him to management.
He gone lose his job over words. He will be fired over his WORDS.

Not only I'm I a woman, I've been married for 29 years, 30 this year. We speak kind, loving words to each other.

If others can take whites calling them the N word and do nothing....I have nothing to say about that.
The N word has the power to get somebody a beat down or shot.
With all due respect, the article I read is bogus. Did you write the article?

If words had no power, the murder rate would go down to 1 a week or less.
Arguments, fights, murder, all started with WORDS.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
