A Word About the 'N' Word on this Site
« on: June 07, 2018, 08:06:51 AM »
Hey fellas, short and sweet: I really wish we would stop using the 'N' word on this site to describe African-Americans. We can all be better than that.

I mean, there are men of all races here, but the only racist term we see in posts is the 'N' word -- and the word is often being used by men who are African-American themselves. We can do better than that.

You can help by not using the 'N' word in posts, and more important, school newcomers to the board that the 'N' word ain't cool.

That is all.

I hear you Fuente and respect your point of view.  With that said I personally use nigga, dude, brother, and mutherfucka when speaking to a casual audience.  Am I some ignorant dude with no knowledge of self?  No actually quite the opposite.

I've been called a "Nigger" plenty of times, i'm educated and have a good understanding of the issues facing our people, and i've experienced real racial violence.  So yes i'm all to familiar with the word "Nigger" and its historical context.

With that being said, I really cant tell you why I say nigga so often.  Maybe because I hear it all the time, maybe because of popular culture, or maybe because I just like the way it sounds.  One thing I do KNOW FOR SURE.....black people have way BIGGER problems than the use of the N word.

Actually, the biggest problem black people have is racism -- and the use of the 'N' word in public settings plays right into that.

But I do respect your point of view as well. I am perfectly fine with substituting the 'N' word with "kunckleheads" on this forum, since that is usually the context the 'N' word is used here to discuss African-Americans and their behavior in the Su.

How guys use the word privately or amongst their friends is up to them. I don't use the 'N' word anymore (thanks, Richard Pryor), but there was a time when I might privately greet my No. 1 tight dude by calling him ... well you know what I mean.

Now as I have matured, I just think the use of that word in multicultural, public settings is just bad.

Again, I do understand and appreciate your view, Street. Peace and power to you. If we ever meet in the streets in the Su, I am going to greet you by calling you "my brotha!"

Your first Presidente is on me.

Absolutely, what you choose to do in private is one thing what you choose to broadcast to the world is a whole nother thing. It’s a little hard to tell a non-black not to use the N word when some of us choose to use it liberally for all the world to see. I know folks see it differently, but to me it shows a lack of self respect.

One thing I do KNOW FOR SURE.....black people have way BIGGER problems than the use of the N word.

Actually, the biggest problem black people have is racism -- and the use of the 'N' word in public settings plays right into that.

But I so respect your point of view.

Thks Fuente, appreciate the offer on the beer.

I cant sit here and defend the use of the word, that would be kind of ridiculous.  The word has its roots in a whole lot of blood.  At the same time lets not believe for a second that getting rid of the word is going to do anything to combat white supremacy.  They dont hate us because of the way we speak, or the words we use.  They hate us because we're black.  I'm not in the "lets act a certain way to appease white people" camp.  Ever been around a stinkin, inbred, toothless redneck?  Did you say to yourself, "damm, white people aint shit?"  Probably not because that redneck didnt represent all white people to you.  Now when a white supremacist sees us acting out they say "look how black people act, they aint shit!"  To them nigga shit represents ALL black people.  The Obamas of the world are only an exception to them.  For that reason I dont play the game.  Trust me guys....I know my enemy well.

I hear you, Street. You are right: We cannot control what white supremacists say about us, but we can control what we say about each other.

Peace and blessings, my brotha.

Haha, I hear you, PB. But when your uncle takes you and your friends out in public, does he say, "and these are my (N-Word) right here!"

Of course he doesn't.

I'm not trying to influence how black people talk in private or among other black friends. But to use the N-word on a public, multicultural forum like this? I think it is degrading, but that's just my opinion. Appreciate your thoughts, my brotha!

"If you're not black no way you could understand...The origin of the word is fucked up, but we use the word as if Italians would say "forget about"....

@ Street easy     That door swings both ways. I have been called" Redneck , Cracker, Peckerwood, Gray boy" by brothers that have never met me only see white skin and blue eyes . There are only 8 major blood types until one realizes , we all came from the same place. The skin we wear is just the clothes we were born with , changed through time by nature there will always be issues. The color that matters in todays world is green the more green you have in your hand the more doors that open for you.
