I'm very proud to see this young boy up there proclaiming his beliefs. I also cannot imagine that here in this year of 2009 we are still walking around calling each other nigger and nigga. There is no spin that you can put on that word. There is no way to soften the blow. With all of our Father/Mother/Grand Fathers/Grand Mothers/ Great Grand Fathers/Great Grand mothers had to go through, this generation has to continue to be so ignorant? Me included sometimes, I will be honest.
My husband and I were just on YouTube the other night and stumbled across a song called "Lookin Ass Nigga" And as I sit here typing this, I'm thinking back as of how I was acting while watching that video. I was laughing hysterically, practically in tears. Admiring the flow of the rappers, their skill of quickly "telling a nigga" what he looks like. But now I'm sitting here in reflection of myself and I don't like what I see. Yes, I'm young, Yes I'm impressionable, yes it is what some would say harmless entertainment. Really? I believe its not. I shouldn't have found that funny, because there is always a deeper meaning. I need to watch myself-What do you think? Do you use the word Nigga in everyday speech? What are your thoughts?
