N-Word WHAT......... N-Word WHO


Yeaaaaaah............. so this is how the story goes.

I get this Myspace friend request from some rap kid from OHIO named Jerry right?

I know... why am I still on myspace right? Well i had the page for a while, and every now and then an old friend (who has been locked up from back when myspace was cool) will hit me up so I check it here and there.
Not the point.
Back to Jerry... rather than just accept his shit (like a needy friend monger), I check out his music (like i always do about this time) and I hear NIGGA. Once is too many, but it is littered in every other bar.

Now comparitavley, the crack music that a lot of yall make is littered with a fuck lot more SUBS's (Setting Us Back Statement) than Jerry's. But it just so happens that it is a some corn fed white boy talking about nigga this, and his niggas that.

Should this really bother me.......... probably not. Considering that there are millions of children on this spinning ball of dirt and water that do not have clean drinking water,............?
NO, a dumb ass redneck rapper (rapneck) should not be able to get me off my train of thought. But I'm bored, and I had the time while I was eating a sandwich so I shot the kid a response as to why I denied the holy shit out of his friendly request for my fake internet friendship.

The message was:

_______________________________________________________________________________
Subject: Cant fuck wit ya Kramer

Call me old fashioned, but white rappers who say; nigga/nigger/nig/nukka/ninja/niggra/Nigeria/Canadian/Mondays
or any other "darkey derivative" just dont sit too well with me. Dont worry, I am not staging a "sit in" or anything like that, and furthermore people with my opinion most likely in the minority but you might not want to perform that shit.
Have fun at the next klan meetin'

Now i know what i think.........because im thinking it
(and because i told me already)

But what do you all think?


Obviously the kid was a douche, and even worse a bad rapper, but did i over react (did I underreact)?

I hate some of these music people.

A very nice young lady told me that "hate" is a strong word, but this is a very strong feeling.

Between you and me (and whoever else read this lol)
this is relatively new for me........... the hating of strangers over hip hop. I never really cared enough to give the thronging masses of unsigned artist a second though, but i think the longer you have forced interaction with ANYONE, the larger the breeding ground for contempt.

THE INTERNET IS THE DEVIL

Hate IS a strong word, however being forced to "play nice" with rappers named Young Cruddy Gunshot Uzi Killah who will go on, and on about how they keep it gully, gangsta, real, popping in the streets, spit the hot crack piff, pop glocks, and grab guap, and are for the kids..... You really want to bungee with no cord just for some peace and quiet. The only thing that makes it worth it, is the small group of people who enjoy the crazy shit I rap about. Coupled with the artists that are SO INCREDIBLE and talented that its a constant source of inspiration.

sorry to get all Hemingway on you all here, but its been a long week.

Perhaps we were meant to cross paths so i could give him a reality check, and save him from getting on stage and saying that simple shit and loosing his life?
Maby he will be the next Em' ?
PROBABLY NOT
On the other hand he may have just blown me off, gone to get some dark meat from Popeye's and sung "shoot a nigger kill a nigger" all the way home.

lol

drop your 2 cents

I've never understood midwesterners. Perhaps I should try harder.

I think younger folks have become desensitized in general to the use of that word. There's no one who tells them how wrong it is, especially out in the midwest, and it just doesn't connect. There's no history or stigma for them.

I'm not saying there should be more beatings or violence, but words have power and all people need to understand the signficance of what they are saying, especially if they are saying a specific word repeatedly.

Perhaps you did do that kid a service, but I doubt he would have made it out of his hometown (or at least the midwest). Although perhaps I'm being overly judgmental, having not listened to his music.

In any case, I think silence in the face of ignorance is cowardly, so I'm with you on your handling of the situation. But I do agree with the young lady, hate is a strong word.

will this bloody "n" word never die?! nope.

i've said this way too many times before but since i don't forsee anyone letting the use--or non-use--of "nigger" go anytime soon i'll just repeat it once more:
what i find funny is that "nigger" is just a word. "just" "like" "every" "word" "in" "this" "sentence." words only have power if you give them power. words are only controversial if you make them controversial.

now, i don't like the word so i don't use it or answer to it. but if mc corn killah up there thinks its a good idea to use well it's w/e to me, but he should know that not everybody is as chill as me on those subjects.

so you did right by letting him know it may not be a good idea (unless he has really good security).


but the music was probably garbage anyway b/c you can't get too much quality in there if all you're saying is "nigga, nigga, nigga"

Good job letting homeboy know about his stupidity. I know white people that grew up in the center of the ghetto around a bunch of black folk who called them nigga all the time. So, yeah they say it cause I beleive they honestly don't know any better. It's like a human being raised by wolves in a sense. Not that I'm defending it but a situation like that is knida understandable. A hick rapper tho...not so much. You should have invited him to do a feature set @ the 5 Seasons to perform those songs. lol. I would have came thru to see that. lol.
