Burying The N-Word? Nigga, Please…

I love stealing Phonte’s Myspace blog entries…almost as much as I love reading them….

Family,

I normally don’t get ‘political,’ per se…but some shit is just so bass ackwards that you can’t help but speak upon it…

These NAACP niggas done lost they minds, yo….like, seriously….these niggas is gangbangin on bacon right now….(c) Katt Williams

Do these niggas know how silly they look trynna bury a word? A WORD, fam…. What they gon’ write on the tombstone, “Rest In Peace, NIGGA?”

Even better, what did they write for the obituary?

“On this 10th day of July, in the year 2007, the Lord stretched out his arms and his oldest son NIGGA was called home to etermal rest. A worldly man, NIGGA could frequently be found in the strip club, the grocery store, the community center, and even the church on occasion. NIGGA reached worldwide popularity thanks to hip-hop, whose artists’ frequently shouted NIGGA’S name out even more than their own. NIGGA is survived by his devoted wife of 200 years, Mammy; his lovely daughters Bitch and Ho; twin sons, Coon and Sambo; a distant cousin, Tarbaby; and a young niece, Pickaninny.”

Do these niggas know that even if you erased the word ‘nigga’ from the English language, Black people would still have MUCH bigger problems to deal with?

Do these niggas realize that words only have the power that you lend them, and that 90% of that power comes from the person saying them and the way they PRESENT those words to you? I’ve had Black people say ‘my nigga’ and make me feel loved, while I’ve had white folks call me ‘Mr. Coleman’ and make me feel like shit…

Do these niggas not see the irony in the fact that the Black community’s newfound ‘consciousness’ was in fact brought about by the firing and ostracizing of two WHITE men? (Mike Richards and Don Imus)

This country…..boy, I swear…..

*counts backwards from 10*

*breathes deep*

*throws on Kenny G’s ‘Songbird’*

Anyway, for all the people who’s been askin, “Getback” is droppin 9/25 on ABB Records, and don’t worry, me and Pooh gon be sayin ‘nigga’ all thew that shit….lol

We’ll be putting up a new blog and/or video entry every Tuesday until the album drops (and yes, Great Moments in Negro Cinema is coming back too…along with a few special guests….)

Stay strong, my niggas……and thanks for supporting the movement…

One,
Tigallo.
