The Fog Cairo Phelp's Image The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Stations Project Prologue Satire Dialect Sticks and Stones The events described in the poem were the only thing he remembered because he had never been called a "nigger" before, and he could tell by the way the person said it to him that it was an offensive term.
The poem needed the word "nigger" in it because the poem is all about the impact that hearing that word for the first time had on the poet. With a substitute for the word, the poem would've lost its impact.
An example of a time when a person was called a name and it hurt was when an overweight girl was at the DMV and was called pregnant by a little boy who she didn't know.
Name-calling hurts more when it is done by strangers because if a stranger calls you a name, you know they are serious and that it was meant to hurt you , if a family member calls you a name, they could be joking, and if not, you know they still love you.

Once identified, these topics are often ridiculed through the use of wit, irony, or sarcasm. White formal education and Black informal education made him understand both cultures.
