I agree @Micah.

The word "nigger" and "nigga" have a deeper meaning and history to it than most pronouns. Especially in regards to black folk.

Of course, it just isn't right when white people say "nigga" (mostly because it is cringe and less because of context or meaning for me). In general, I prefer when people call me by my name or by any other pronoun. Even amongst other black peeps, I dislike when someone calls me "nigga".

The term actually comes with a certain image . . . and not a good one. I am not a "nigga" and I never want to be known as a "nigga". I am not disowning my racial background, but being black and being a "nigga" are two different things.



. . . now as for the internet, I don't care. Lol. Just no hard "r".
Meh. I think I need to quit toribash for a bit.

*Opinion passing by not contributing to current discussion* I don't have a problem with this video, in fact I like the idea, but I don't like how they take these two extreme stereotypes as examples and make it sound like they share opinions with majority of the population in US which is completely misleading for everyone.

I feel like at the end of the day this song can do more harm than good in some cases, because it is clearly "white vs black" and even though it has a good message, if a black person sees this video he will think "oh well then, every white person thinks like this guy, fuck them".

Overall good message, but could have been executed without these two extreme characters.

I completely agree. YOU ARE CONTRIBUTING, lol. I think the idea is to show that both extremes are a little stupid, and not to make people believe that everyone is like that, but you're 100% right, a person could totally think that, and that represents a huge flaw in the video.

The video has a good message. Some unfortunate externalities though.

My opinion On racism
In All seriousness racism is a devastating thing i am black myself i try to spread the word around my neighborhood to be caring and how doesn't matter the skin color I'm a civilized black male boy who knows the cruel ways of racism and why and how it should not be a thing. i use civilized terminology or talk in a sophisticated way and surround my self with nice considerate people I love all people and humans yes they make mistakes but they can be fixed In conclusion Racism WILL be extracted from our country IF WE WORK TOGETHER

You realize that some black people are uncivilized right?

Being black shouldn't inherently mean anything at all. I believe that even culture should never become race specific. Race-specific ideology only leads to division; its a sad truth.

Like I said before:

Everything has to be case by case.
