Ok i was thinking the other day about the word nigger and was wondering about one thing in particular about the word. Why do black people get offended from the word when a white guy like me says it, but then turn around and include the word in mainstream media? What i mean is, why do rappers release shitty albums with the word in it, and produce shows like Boondocks that use the word heavy when they know white people who make up the majority of their sales will be exposed to it. Like to someone like me who sees and hears these shows and songs, the word doesnt sound like its oppressing black people, it sounds like its making them folks money. The only reason why i bought the boondocks series was because of the way they use nigger. Examples include songs like "Keep them niggers out of nascar", "anyway you figure the president is a nigger", and "dont trust them niggers over there"etc etc... My favourite line from boondocks is "Get your black ass outta here nigger".....
Wouldnt it make sense that if the word generates so much hatred, that not encouraging would be the smart thing to do? But then black musicians and producers encourage it to make money.... It sounds really fucked up to me... If the word offends the black community so much then the black community should not promote the word in my opinion.
Like in my opinion al sharpton should get on the podium and tell them nigga's to stop promoting the word so normal black people dont have to deal with the fucking word.
My two cents and if you think im racist then fuck you
