Observed Phenomenon:

Non-white people get angry when they are called nigger by white people.

Hypothesis:

To minimize the emotional connection to the word nigger when you are called nigger by a white person, if you are a non-white person, ask questions.

Experiment:

Ask only the following following questions if you are a non-white person and you are being called nigger by a white person:

    (1) What is a nigger?
    (2) Why are you calling me a nigger?
    (3) What do you think should be done with a nigger?
Recording Data:

Use whatever recording device you can such as pencil and paper, audio recorder, video recorder, memory, etc., to make sure the interactions between people are recorded.

Expected Results:

    (1) The white person may tell you what they should be done with a nigger but they will not do it.
    (2) The non-white person will have less anxiety when focusing on the questions to ask.

One thing you want to do when running this experiment is to make sure you are able to escape harm to the best of your ability.
