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.
Still the best 71
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.
Another 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.
Still the best 71
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.
