WATCH: N-Word Prank Lands Punk White Boy in Hot Water

What happens when a prankster goes into a black neighborhood and starts using the N-word as a friendly gesture? Watch the above video to find out!

Just if you were curious, the N-word means “black” and was once considered a neutral, non-offensive term. This changed when slavery and segregation began to rage throughout the U.S. and beyond.
