I am translating the article on jwfacts on black skin and racism, and so I set out to find more racist quotes in Watchtower literature. What I never expected to find is that they actually used the "n" word in Watchtower literature, up to 1994!
To be fair, they use the word mainly in the context of someone else saying that word, insulting black JW´s or black people, but still... if someone insulted someone else using the word "fucker" or "cunt", I doubt they would actually put the word in print, so why put it for the "n" word??
Here are the post 1950 quotes where it is used:
*** g94 7/22 p. 20 Addie Found the Answer Late but Not Too Late ***
“I’d asked Papa why he didn’t refuse this stuff, and he’d reply: ‘That would be a big mistake, an insult. Besides, the KKK [Ku Klux Klan] don’t mess with none of Mr. Neely’s niggers.’ So we paid for all this stuff we didn’t need. And I thought of what Papa was always saying: ‘Don’t buy what you don’t need, or soon you’ll need what you can’t buy.’ I hated Mr. Neely!
*** g90 3/22 p. 21 I Tried to Change the World ***
There I experienced racism. Not that I hadn’t been victimized before by discrimination in its many guises, especially those ever-present reminders of my “inferior status,” the signs by water fountains and rest rooms saying “White Only” and “Colored Only” and the racial slurs scrawled on buildings, such as “No niggers allowed.”*** g82 7/22 p. 25 “From a Lion to a Lamb” ***Still I wrestled with a 270-pound policeman who finally flung me facedown into a puddle of muddy swamp water, sat on my back and taunted: “Nigger, you’re going to die!”
*** g77 10/8 p. 3 Races Are Strikingly Different ***Consider the Spencers, a black family who moved into a nice section of New York city. It was the eve of 1975. A pipe bomb came flying into their house, with the note attached: NIGGER, BE WARNED. “It was intended to wipe out the family,” the police captain who investigated said.
*** g77 10/8 p. 26 They Found the Solution to the Problem of Race ***My father told me that as a boy he wouldn’t dare look a white person in the eye while talking to him. He said that his head must be bowed a little and he would have to answer with a “yessa” or “nossa” for fear of reprisal. He even told me about his going into town and having a white shoot at his feet, and yelling, “Hey nigger, dance!”
*** w74 12/1 p. 708 Racial Injustice—Will We Ever Be Relieved of It? ***In those days in the South, public places, such as bus stations, were sectioned off, and we had to sit in the back of the bus. When it appeared that we had forgotten our place, there were the belittling drawls: “Now, you-all know no niggers belong here. Now git on to the back.”
