It seems that many of the examples outside of the meaning. The original would be a Double Standard
with slurs, but made into times the n word had been or not been used. Perhaps another trope, "N Word Taboo", could be used for other wicks.
Alternatively, rename this trope to Double Standard Slurs
. Because "person says the N-word" isn't a trope.
Also misused in that this trope is used when the writer means Offending the Creator's Own
, a YMMV trope. For example, Mel Brooks making a comedy with Adolf Hitler
and offending Jews is Offending the Creator's Own
, not N-Word Privileges

No, the other one.
Considering that at least much of the misuse is just about saying nigger
, I think a rename might help.
On the other hand, N-Word Privileges
is a term I've seen used outside TV Tropes
with the same meaning as the trope.
There's a similar problem with Country Matters
. It lists every instance of people saying "cunt." Except there, it's not misuse - the trope has no other definition.
I think Country Matters
is about how the word is never used
unless things get serious. Like Precision F-Strike
. Precision F-Strike is another trope that gets abuse for every time the F word gets used, as admitted by Square Peg Round Trope

In that case, it has massive, massive misuse. And a bad laconic, description and name.
A Wizard boy
This has 580 wicks, so cleaning out those who lack an indicator of a double standard (not Double Standard
; that is something quite different really).
as-is is just the same thing as Mother F-Bomb
was - a trope about the insult and nothing else.
Technically N-Word Privileges
is about the timing, justification and providence for being able to use certain words, hence the idea that black people using the n-word can do so and seem casual while a white person who uses the word is racist. Thus it extends beyond one word but the truth is the n-word is the one brought up most often in media.
Plus the massage cleanup of the wicks that use the trope just for n-word.
Also, from what I've seen Precision F-Strike is a bit of a misleading title as well, because it's not limited to F-Bombs.
"It's not that simple. We are all both, good and evil, we have rage and compassion, we have love and hate...murder and forgiveness."
Just zis guy
^ Neither is Atomic F-Bomb
or Cluster F-Bomb
limited to just that specific obscenity, without a lot of misuse that I know of.
