shaeroden:

imagine if aliens came to earth and started having a conversation about the word “nigger”

aliens: so only black people can say that word?

people: yeah

aliens: so what if a white person says that word?

people: then he’s racist

aliens: but if a black person says that word, he’s not racist?

Obviously, the mental capasity of white people is equivalent to that of an extraterrestrial being.. That explains a lot

No, no no no NO.
It sure as hell is NOT OKAY.

If you are not black don’t say it.
“nigga” and “nigger” are the same word if you’re not black.

It will never be okay, you cannot reclaim a slur that was not directed at your people.

why the fuck can’t people wrap their heads around this shit? it’s like these anons are tryin to get folks’ pressure up.

"Nigga and nigger are the same word if you’re not black."

Brb laughing forever.
They’re serious.
They’re actually serious.

did you know that while working in beijing my friend came to realize that they use “niga” in conversation like we use “um”

fun fact

so let me get this straight…

a black person can refer to me as “cracker” which is short for “whip-cracker” as in one who cracks a whip over slaves, and there’s no outcry for falsely referring to me as a moral criminal guilty of actual slavery.

but when a white person calls a black person “nigger” which is slang for “nigerian” which is a freaking nationality, with no actual berating denotation in the first place…  suddenly, MORAL OUTRAGE BLARGABLARGABLARGA!!!

i’m going to call people what i want to call them.  and allow everyone else the same freedom to call whoever they want, whatever they want.

i’m kind of egalitarian that way.

Your ignorance is unbecoming, you uneducated swine. Your “egalitarian” thinking is actually racist, but I’m sure you know and I’m sure you do not care.

Are you so daft to think that nigger is the shortened word for Nigeria? I’m actually laughing at your attempt to justify calling a black person nigger by spewing that utter bullshit. The word nigger has never been shortened from anything. “Nigger” is it’s own word used to dehumanize an entire people. With that being said, NOT EVERY BLACK PERSON IS FROM NIGERIA.

I would ask ‘where is your humanity?’, but you have none.

White people making up lies and justifications for racism never has and never will surprise me.

Your people are demonic.

shaeroden
YOU ARE FUCKING STUPID!!! YOU’RE THE BIGGEST MORON I’VE EVER SEEN!! Nigger is slang for Nigeria? God, you’re beyond stupid. Please take to seconds to pull your head outta your ass so you can see just how stupid you are. I can’t even deal with this foolishness right now.

okay, so it actually comes from latin word for “black.”

but i’m still missing the part where calling someone the latin word for black somehow actually demeans that person.

regardless of where it comes from.  who actually physically suffers from people calling them names?

it’s a word, people.  it’s not my problem if you get your panties in a bind over a fucking word.


Words have meaning though, like how hard is it to understand that some words offend people because they’re steeped in racism and discrimination?  Why are you so adamant about using it?

image

so when lil’ wayne or eminem say “nigger” in their songs they’re using it in the context of “you’re my slave?”

because it sounds an awful lot like the connotation is closer to “friend” than “slave”

or are you going to say that i can’t ever use that connotation because i was born with the wrong skin color?

image

WHY THE FUCK DO YOU EVEN WANT TO SAY IT? WHY?

Why in the hell do you want to call people niggers? What in your life is so  fucking important that nigger is ok for you to say around black people? 

Listen, if you have a group of people with a history of oppression by the hands of white people (whether they are a friend, colleague, coworker, acquaintance, random stranger.) and they say you as a white person are doing something racist, it makes me uncomfortable/not feel safe/threatened/uneasy you stop. If you don’t stop, you’re a giant racist dickhead.

just because a bunch of black folks say you cant say nigga or nigger or whatever in whatever context doeesnt have some cosmic censor to keep it from spilling from your pasty mouth. Please go to the west/south side of Chicago, Harlem, Detroit, Oakland, Houston, Atlanta and any place with a large black population nearest to you and say it as much as you fucking can. Please do. You deserve whatever comes to you.

i don’t actually call people niggers.  i say the word to refer to the idea of the word, yes, but i never direct it at anyone.  i do not call people nigger, nor do i call them other things like “bitch” or “fucktard” but i say those words to refer to the idea of the word.

i grew out of name calling when i was like…  12…

Well you need to understand that non-black people not saying the n-word is one of those culturally tactful things people are just supposed to do. ITs like not cursing in front of old people. or calling your parents friends or your friends parents by their first names unless instructed not to. They are things done out of respect and the people who dont do them do not respect the group the rule is for.

I could go into historically and socially why non-black folks shouldn’t say it but it all boils down to respect. You don’t know how the next black person is going to react to you saying the n-word. You don’t know how often they hear it or have heard it in their lives and what it invokes in them.

My parents are in their mid-fifties and they get triggered as fuck when white people say the n-word because of going through the civil rights movement. It doesn’t have the same reaction when my brother says it to his friends.

You reference it as if non-black people still don’t say it to hurt black people. Shit I got called the n-word last week at my job at a gay bar for kicking some dude and his boyfriend out for being too drunk. 

So from one autistic person to another, you are arguing about something you have no cultural, societal, or historical reference to and don’t know how complex this topic is. I suggest you apologize for making statements you didn’t understand the weight of.

in the context of your grandparents, of course i wouldn’t use that word around them.  it brings back memories that are emotionally painful.  and i would have no reason to refer to anything related to that word anyways.  if they are triggered by that word, they wouldn’t want anyone to use it around them, whether they be white, black, pink, or a green space alien.  that’s a universal standard.  i can respect that. 

but when people start saying “when this person says that word, it triggers me, but this other person can say it and i’ll be fine,”  yeah, that’s when i call bullshit.  there’s no objective universal standard to that.  and i don’t dance around non-universal standards for the sake of diplomacy.

if i have called to memory any traumatizing experiences of yours by using that word, then i do apologize.

Just shut the fuck up
Really, just shut up
They just EXPLAINED and spilled every damn grain of their being into explaining to you why they are uncomfortable with something and you think you’re in any position to call bullshit on something that effects someone, NOT YOU? Excuse me but, kill yourself. You’re obviously racist and don’t give a fuck about anyone but yourself. Ew

MODERNITY IN SHAPING THE STATUS OF AFRICA Both Cost 150,000 US Dollars.

gtfohhhhhhhh

Soo does a man come with the Nigerian house or nah?

Dang

Man usually comes with the house but there are some for the single lady’s.
Seriously our house in Lagos is about this big. America doesn’t know jack about “third world” countries.

errrr… yah. but then you wake up and you’re in Africa.. its not just about the square footage or amenities of a home but you must consider the neighborhood.. do i feel safe with who is living next door? is there clean, running water? is there wildlife to be concerned with? what are the roads like? and seriously most importantly DO I HAVE HIGH SPEED INTERNET. I AM NOT DOWNGRADING TO 56K. NEVER AGAIN

Okay, so I see I need to give a geography lesson, let’s see if I can say this humanly

1. The OP said Nigeria NOT “Africa”
2. “Consider the neighborhood”? What kind of IS is that?! People are PEOPLE wherever you go. You have your rich you have your poor. You have your smarts, and you have people like you that spout IS. 
3. Seriously, roads?
 
THIS IS LAGOS, NIGERIA HIGHWAYS…Looks a lot like LA…HMMM.

4. Wildlife? We have wildlife in the states; bears, deer, my mother saw a coyote outside her office window and she works 20 minutes away from downtown. What are you suggesting?
5. Lastly this is the stupidest thing. Internet. Is it not the Nigerians coning your gullible American asses out of your life savings. So much you it has cause alarm, and has government protocol so your stupid grandmother does send her savings thinking she can get rich quick. I think Nigeria has Internet and HIGH SPEED under control
I suggest you read, adsorb, learn and apply. Before spouting off about “Africa” again. =_=


TELL ‘EM 

Lmao they said “.. do i feel safe with who is living next door? ”
Nigga I’m black in America! Ain’t nothing safe about that! ignorance and hatred is everywhere but I’d still take my chances in Nigeria!

white people. you’re the only people who is safe anywhere in the world … reminds me of this Haitian french dude saying that since he’s been back in Haiti he can finally breath in peace.. cause no white cops … he feels safe … since in forever …. and Haiti has it’s problem … but the guys feels safer here than France…so yeah


Yea, they wanna live in our nice houses on our nice land but fear our people and find SOME reason to kill us and clean us from our land because “they don’t feel safe”Another thing, you see this luxurious house and you go ahead and ask dumb ass questions about wildlife and the fucking roads. Bruh, you not even trying
