I should explain to everyone not reading Finnish or Swedish that what Finn123 writes is wrong.

The word "Neekeri" in Finnish and "Neger" in Swedish can't be translated into the racial slur "N-word" - it's translated as "Negro".
Which was considered the scientifically correct name for people of African decent in Scandinavia at the time these brands where first named in the 1920's and 30's.

The "N-word" has only ever been known as a racial slur originating in the US.
It has never been considered a proper name for people of African decent here. Only racists has ever used that term.
