Why do we put down Wiggas?
Some black folks are offend at the fact that there are white people out there desperately trying to be black. But is there is a difference between someone trying to appropriate our culture for their own agenda and people who just love everything about us. Wigga’s are white people (white n*gga) who dress and act like black people, copying their mannerism in terms of hip hop, reggae, attitude and speech. This is not a new phenomenon, white people do have a habit of appropriating the culture of others. Check it:
We all know that England has been conquered by the Romans during the first century before Christ and the first century after. A Roman historian named Tacitus wrote of the Britons:
“The Britons readily support levies and taxes, so long as their pride is not hurt. Insult they cannot bear. They have been tamed by obedience but not to slavery.”
Tacitus condemned the Britons for not sticking to their own customs and language.
“They spoke Latin and took to wearing the Roman dress, yielded to the seduction of our Roman vices, they indulged in comfortable seats, baths, and elegant banquets.”
This to his mind degraded them to the level of slaves.
Check it out! If white people are dressing like blacks and talking like blacks why grumble? We are the seducers and they are the seduced. We are the conquerors which means….
Long Live The Wigga!
