Abbott and Costella predicted it 70 years ago. If you don’t get it, ask your parents, or your grandparents.

    It is a satire film but the n word usage is OVER BOARD .. the word was not even nviatgee in that way in the american lexicon until the 1900 s Tarantino is a sick man to love this word so much ACCORDING TO THE ENCYCLOPEDIABy the 1900s, nigger had become a pejorative word. In its stead, the term colored became the mainstream alternative to negro and its derived terms. Abolitionists in Boston, Massachusetts, posted warnings to the Colored People of Boston and vicinity. Writing in 1904, journalist Clifton Johnson documented the opprobrious character of the word nigger, emphasizing that it was chosen in the South precisely because it was more offensive than colored. [8] Established as mainstream American English usage, the word colored features in the organizational title of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, reflecting the members’ racial identity preference at the 1909 foundation. In the Southern United States, the local American English dialect changes the pronunciation of negro to nigra. Linguistically, in developing American English, in the early editions of A Compendious Dictionary of the English Language (1806), lexicographer Noah Webster suggested the neger new spelling in place of negro.[9]
