    Whitey has promoted self destructive lifestyles among black folks since the beginning by funding gangster rap through their control of music studios and and other media outlets. They have made celebrating pimping, drug dealing, gang banging and shallow materialism the way to destroy black folks instead putting on white hoods and burning crosses. But hey anything to make a buck right?

    It’s pretty ridiculous that I’m just singing along to a song and I get ridiculed. My boyfriend is black and he doesn’t understand the problem either. I honestly think that if they don’t want people to sing along then stop making music.

    The N word isn’t a cultural thing and if it is that all Black ppl are racist within each other because they calling each other the N word every day just to refer to another person if they don’t want nobody saying the word than it’s come first from the Culture Black culture needs to stop saying the N word so nobody says it why you think nobody uses the racist word towards spanish ppl because we have respect within our culture not to call each other that so we Won’t allow nobody disrespect us Black ppl need to look within there culture before they start speaking about anyone else

    I’m with Amanda and Adrienne. Sorry not sorry. And Hard LOL at Loni for proving Amanda’s point with the Michael Jackson reference. She really thought she had that one. Why is it in order to explain the nuances about Black issues, people don’t get it until we provide examples of the Jewish experience that is the same? This is getting old.

    No Amanda that’s not what you’re saying and you’re making an excuse for people using a term that should not be used at all stop justifying a word that has no place in anyone’s mouth anybody no matter what race I don’t wanna hear a history lesson it’s wrong. Period

    By claiming that black people shouldn't use a reclaimed slur in part of expressing their experience and identity in their music, rather than simply non-black people leaving it out while singing along, it takes away the responsibility for non-black people to think for themselves and take accountability for the actions they choose to take and puts the responsibility for what they do and don't do on black people. Maybe other non-black people could grow up, hold themselves responsible for what they do in life, instead of forcing people to cater to their unwillingness to be mindful in their choices. ~ From a white person who has zero trouble leaving out the N word when singing along to music (it's not really not hard, therefore people just don't care, and that's the problem).

    At the end of the day. When black people choose to use the word and put it in their songs that white people also listen to and buy, they need to accept the fact that this will be continuously controversial.

    Here’s the thing: the n word can be compared to the b word. B word was originally a demeaning word.. just like the n word. But now people are comfortable with calling their friends both words. I’m black but I can’t in good conscience call someone I care about a b or n word because I know where the word comes from. So I agree with Adrienne. If you don’t feel comfortable saying it DONT (even if you’re black). The b word and the n word are both used as terms of “endearment” now and tbh it doesn’t make sense to me. Maybe it’s something only older people or old souls understand but I can’t get with it. But to each his own. I also agree that people should know how to sensor themselves and not use the word if you’re not black. You don’t have to sing every lyric. Also stop hating on Loni because she’s entitled to her opinion and it’s not even a bad opinion or idea. Idek why black people love that word so much anyway. Like why do you insist on saying it??

    Not all rap artists use it to show their struggle.. most use it as a casual term. Shouldn't be one rule for one and another for others. You hate it so much.. stop using it yourself in your songs. Teach by example. People often imitate.. not do what you tell them to do.

    I feel Lonnie is wrong,it us a choice, and as a black man I don't use it,but others will. But if you are not black,you can sing the song without saying the word I do it, so it can be done.

    It is for black people to decide amongst ourselves how WE want to use the word since it was a word used to oppress our people. So non black people tell us if we should or shouldn’t use the word and how it’s used, understand that is NOT your place. I agree with the women who said if you don’t want no parts of perpetuating the oppression of black peoples then it’s really not that damn difficult to not use the word. Otherwise, be ready for the backlash. “ I also agree with Loni that we shouldn’t use it but not for the intent of making other people comfortable but because to use the word is to embrace slave culture. We are kidding ourselves if we say that it is a term of endearment. Black peoples we did have a culture before slavery and it did not include the n-word. Thanks for sharing

    Listen! I'm with the argument that black people shouldn't say the n word but if they want to it's their right. No other group in American has had their blood spilled in the USA in relationship to that word not Asians and not Latinos. Secondly just because you have African ancestry doesn't mean you are black. And when I say black I mean African American. Their are so many people who are in the African diaspora that share the same ancestry but they don't share the African American experience. Just because you are Afro Latino or Afro Asian doesn't mean that you navigate through the USA the same way as an African American nor do you have the same historical ties to this words such as African Americans. That word will never effect you they way it has and can affect African Americans communities.

    I understand both sides. I believe if you are telling a story about your experience and you consciously choose to say the word... ok fine. To use it loosely or in a song as “slang” i say get rid of it I have children that are listening to current music and I do my best to filter or use kids bop as much as possible but things will slip through so occasionally I will hear a inappropriate lyric and my daughter will sing it proud. She has NO IDEA what she is saying or what it means! Thankfully I will hear it and I can correct her but to date I have to say I dont think she has ever heard the N word and she is 8. So imagine a few years from now she is introduced to some music with that word in it and she is in her teen years where she may be a bit more to herself... she may sing a song with that word. I will teach her that she shouldnt but im pretty sure she will wonder why its ok to use it? We can learn alot from children. Its a good place to start when debating these issues. I personally believe this “taking back the power” of that word is Deep deep deep! Why would you take the power back and keep the power over something that is so offensive and so painful? I believe we think we are taking the power back but in fact we are letting it live and every single time that word is spoken.. the people who believe in condemning the black culture will smile. It gives THEM power.. the word still lives on!! I think as a race/culture we can come up with something else. Lets create our own word with a meaning that uplifts us. Why are we allowing a word that came from people that hate us live on? There is no power in that.. it is somewhat reframing and a bit of surrender. I think we should also know that if a word is in a song there is a huge risk it will be repeated. Another conscious thought before recording. I believe that the artist recording this type of music in some cases will not have an issue with it. So defending the side of not repeating it is pointless. Unless you are sharing a personal story in my humble opinion let that word go. Lets honor words that were created to lift us up! There is a beautiful history in that and it can live on forever! Not this other word.
