Words only have power if you give them power.

Well words do not physically harm one, so it is all mental. Therefore words are only allotted power when emotion is received from the opposing party to the 'powerful' word.

Take the word nigger for instance.

A white man calls a black man a nigger, then you most likely are about to witness a fight.

But why would one single word be enough to provoke not only mental disturbance but a physical reaction as well?

It is only that people react that the word has the strength that it does.
