I’m over this topic, non blacks might use it more than blacks now.
I don’t see how saying “whaddup my sand nigga” is any diff from sayin “whaddup my nigga” if I’m showin love.
But really and truly who the fuck cares? If we as black people are still getting offended in this day and age by someone of a different skin colour using the word Nigga(er), then SMH, we haven’t come as far as we’ve been saying.
dj khaled is the scum of the earth god damn he is annoying
on another note, this site is startin to fall off. what happened to all the exclusive content you used to have, interviews, videos pictures? now its just posting the same stuff as every other blog
DJ Khaled to me is the southern/arab Funk Master Flex… everything he does and says annoys me.
lol, ok Khaled, so the word “sand” offends you lol listen the reason these non blacks don’t mind being called nigga is they can take it off and put it on whenever.
if a white person calls Khaled a nigger, he’s gonna look at them a be like “lol, I’m not black” but if that same white person calls him a “sand nigger” it will be a problem.
since we turned nigga into such a “positive” word, I vote that we turn “sand nigga” into a term of endearment too.
What up to all my Arabian/Middle Eastern sand niggas
the reason what up my sand nigga offends him or is “just dumb” is because it’s a derogatory term towards his race…the reason what up my nigga doesn’t offend him is because it is a derogatory term towards another race…if you ask me he’s just dumb for not seeing that lol
this shit is super stupid… this guy is so out of touch with why that word offends certain groups of black ppl. the deep rooted hatred behind that word (witch racist still use as a derogatory term to refer to African Americans) is something that only the ppl it oppressed and was created for can understand. thats why its so easy for these non-blacks to over look the backlash and reasons to not use it, because in the movies when a klans men calls a blk man a nigger it doesn’t effect them not one bit. (A time to kill, Mississippi Burning #movies) depictions of how the ppl to whom this word effects were/R abused. witch explains why its not cool to use that fuckin word all reckless (U cant relate) U aint a nigga 2… the fuckin lack of respect for ppls grandparents who died who lived through tht shit is Y this Sand Fag shouldnt use it. but fuck it i still say nigga so who am i to judge smh @ society
I personally don’t care myself whatever my people wanna call themselves. But don’t go around talking shit to other people that wanna say it. Don’t go calling racism when you use it against each other. That nigga and nigger argument is bullshit it’s a way ignorant people try to sound smarty. There are time when you can’t turn a negative into a positive and the word nigga is one of them.
it’s dumb, like…it’s dumb!
THIS MAN IS AN ARAB THE SAME AS BIN LADEN THATS WHY THEY LOOK THE SAME AND HAVE THE SAME NOSE…. CAN YOU IMAGINE IF BIN LADEN HAD CALLED OBAMA A NIGGA?????? THE WORLD WOULD HAVE GON CRAZY. THIS PUNK JUST EXPLOITES BLACK PEOPLE AND OUR MUSIC. HE AINT EVEN FROM THE STREETS, DUDE JUST WANTS TO BE DOWN SO BAD. AND LOOK WHO HE HANGS WITH NOW OFFICER WILLIAM AND ACE HOOD. COME ON. ARAB
To be honest i dont care who says nigga as talentless rappers like birdman use it when they cant find words to complete their weak ass 16 bars, I live in a metropolitan city (London) and my click is made up of blacks and arabs, My asian friends say nigga all the time as much as i say paki aswel. I see it this way, these boys grew up listening to hiphop and idolise tupac and biggie more than i would ever do, They have bought more CD’s than i would ever do. You want to tell me its ok to buy hiphop CD’s but not say what the rappers are saying?.
The word nigga used to be degrading to blacks then but in this day and age its more of an urban lingo. If a person says he finds the word nigga offensive i would respect that but not understand why until he gives me a decent explanation to why.
As for DJ KHALED, I don’t have a problem with him saying nigga but he needs to shut the fuck up, he is not making sense, He is actually supporting the arguement against him. i never knew celebrities could be this dumb.
As ignorant as it sounds, the N-word shouldn’t come out or anyone’s mouth that isnt black or got black in them… Fuck where u grew up, it’s not for you to say.. The word is to powerful, there will always be someone that will be offended by it as it brings back (what it brings back) at the end of the day, I’m black and I don’t even say it, so why do these other white folk and Latinos or wteva think they can… Go call eachother ur own derogatory terms…shiiiiit!
I’m a white hispanic & i use it all the time. i grew up around blacks & hispanic people so i was always around the word its normal for me to use it cus its def street lingo. if black people can refer to whites as white niggas & spanish as spanish niggas that tells u everything u need know…IT DONT MEAN NOTHING well unless u say nigger then that would be deragotory.
I really don’t care anymore because 90% of black people still use it to identify each other. Other races love to emulate each other so when they say nigga it’s our own damn fault.
I won’t even comment on Khaled because I think Type summed it up perfectly. But I am really tired of this argument that if black people still use the word then it is our fault that other races use it. Historically that is just a flat out lie. We didn’t create the word NIGGER, we didn’t use the word but to try and remove the power of the word and re-frame it it was altered in spelling and used as a term of endearment or as a generic descriptive of a guy. I personally don’t use it on an everyday basis just because I don’t think it is necessary but don’t complain about black people using it. Complain about the lack of resources for education in the hood. Complain about the lack of job opportunities for black men. Complain about the racist arrest rates in this country. Until you deal with the foundational issues I don’t want to hear about an oppressed people trying to make due with what they have. FUCK OUTTA HERE.
aint he puerto rican
“Nigga” is not just a word. Anyone who thinks it is really has to take the time to just think about it from different angles.
We all know white people have no right to use the word and it’s always gonna be that way.
What about non caucasian races like Mexicans, Indians, Puerto Ricans, Arabs etc?
Well here’s the thing. If these arabs, Mexicans and puerto ricans and Indians went through slavery, racism with and injustice with us then they can use that word, if they didnt, then the word’s not for them.
To me the word nigga’s like a ” Medal of honor” for overcoming slavery and racial injustice. When i see a Nigga i’ll say “wussup Nigga” and its a form of respect. To me Niggaz are like world war veterans who survived the hard times, bounced back and siad fuck the white man, so it makes no sense for another race to get that “medal of honor” if they didnt earn it. Dj Khaled’s family never had to deal with slavery and racism so it’s disrespectful for him to think he’s earned that kind of respect.
And you might read this and think it’s foolish for me to say that a word like Nigga can be used to show respect but it’s not about the word it’s about the emotion and message behind the word.
If you are hanging with a non black friend and he says any variation of the “N” word and you accept it, you are a straight up coward.
@E From BK How so? I’ve seen this plenty of times, Chinese dudes calling each other by “N” word. Same thing goes for Hispanics, Arabs, Asians, Whites etc… I heard them calling eah other by “N” word plenty of times.
It’s still used because the “powers that be” want to keep that open, subliminal, and/or non-conscious reminder alive. They have put the word and kept it in mass media and in everyone but those who felt the most pain from its mouth, just in case you feel like you want to reclaim your greatness. READ & WAKE UP
Apples and oranges my dude. If they call each other that or use the word around each other then so be it, but as a black man, I don’t want to hear it coming out of their mouth. Shit, last time someone called me that was in the 6th grade and he regretted he said it after that. EVERYONE knows that it holds a DIFFERENT connotation when coming out of the mouth of someone non black. I hate seeing black men going back and forth with their white friend just throwing that word around. Almost like they are BOTH trying to be accepted, the white dude thinks it makes him look cool and the black dude thinks it makes him looked evolved. It’s all bullshit.
Truth i aggree with what ur sayin but dj khaled is from palestine and to me palestine is just as tortured as black people were,watch the news (not fox) and see how the israelis treat them,u will find that black people and arabs are both treated badly.besides that arabs are not well accepted in the usa,just as black people say they arent(or werent,there`s a black president which is a major win for everyone but white people= awesome) .
