Context?

There are very few contexts where it's not an offensive word.

Black American comedians like Eddie Griffin and Dave Chappelle use that word to great effect - I am in particular reminded of Griffin's analysis of Barack Obama's placing of a swing-set on the front lawn of the White House.

Surely that should be just "porkcullis"?

You misunderstand, the context I used it in here shouldn't be offensive.
I am not using it in a racial slur.

Isn't it mental that a sound that come out your mouth can be offensive even out of context,

For instance a comedian ( can't remember the name ) on Netflix had his contents removed from there ap because he used the word not in a hateful way either but then Netflix PR guy used the word in a meeting describing the first incident and he was fired , For literally describing what had occurred,

Its absolutely crazy ,

Imagine a word having that much power over you. Like imagine being in a fight or verbal confrontation with someone and always being hyper aware that, in amongst millions of other possible insults, that the other person could at any moment say a word that would make you absolutely and completely lose your shït. It may be easy for me to say but the word would lose all power if people just decided not to be offended by it
