I’d like to see the disappearance of the N word from Black people’s mouth in 2012. Actually, let”s start right now. I want people to stop referring to each other as “my nigger” and saying things like “sup nigger”.
The N word has been used for centuries to abuse and denigrate Black people. In the late 80s, certain misguided African Americans decided they would reclaim the word back for black people. Negro please! What was there to reclaim? When I hear the N word I think of Black people being lynched and whipped. It is still used today to abuse us and we shouldn’t be using it to identify each other.
If you call me a ni**er I will slap you upside your head!
If we are in the reclaiming business why not own the following:
- chocolate drop
- black jack
- nig nog
It’s full time we recognise how extremely stupid we look as a race when we use the N word.
When I hear the N word in a song, I just think what a missed opportunity. Couldn’t the artist come up with a better word? I love poetry, and music is poetry to me. When a lyricist uses the N word he’s selling out as far as I’m concerned. If you are lyrically gifted words have power, why dilute them by using that stupid word?
If you disagree that using the N word is sell out behaviour, leave a comment otherwise spread the word. Tell your people to tell their people, we don’t put each other down like that no more. Each one teach one.
