Is It Okay for Other Nationalities to Use the “N Word”

Lately, there has been a lot of controversy with rappers and people of other races using the ” n word ” so loosely. Some people of the black community have stepped up to say “it is NOT ok.”  But the debate still seems to linger. Why isn’t it ok to use the word if it’s in almost every rap song out today? Is it okay if the word is used while only singing along to a song?

Recently, upcoming rapper, Tekashi69 dropped a new song titled Gummo.  In the song, he uses the “n word ” quite often. And let’s just say this video has caused an uproar due to the fact he used the word in his song not one time, but more than 5x.

Check out the video for yourself.

 

People have stepped up questioning his ethnicity, asking if he is mixed with black or if he is just full blown Caucasian. A lot of people said he is Mexican, a latin decent and latins find themselves to be apart of the black culture despite the fact they’re not black. So the question still remains, is it okay? Is it okay for Mexicans, Dominicans, asians, etc to use the word ” n****? ”

We asked a caucasian man what did he think about Tekashi69 using the word so much in his video and his response was funny but very contradicting, ” I use the word but not in a music video. ” So basically it’s okay for him to use it in public, around people he is cool with but it’s not okay to use it in a music video for the whole world to know about.

 

I personally believe that you can not fault other people for using the word so freely when it is allowed by our own people to be in songs, movies and books. America is the only place that allows that cruel and nasty word to be used as a sign of endearment. I have never heard a latin, asian, or white song that uses racial identifying words in their music to show brother hood or endearment to another person.  Just because you hear it being used by other people doesn’t mean you should too. Monkey see monkey do is not okay. Especially when it comes to racial words or comments.

  1. I personally don’t even take it offensive anymore unless it’s used in a derogatory way, then, you’ll get your ass bussed. To be honest, the N word ending in “gga” has been a term of endearment like, “Son,” “G,” “Bro,” “Ace,” etc. The N word ending in “gger” was used as a term to bring us down as a culture but where did the word derive from? Did Someone just make it up to describe a Negro and just changed letters around to make the word sound disrespectful and to make African AmeriKKKans feel like we are lower humans by calling us a name? lol Latinos, minorities even caucasians have names that are supposedly disrespectful that people use like cracker, spic, chino, etc. At this stage in the game, that boy had a hunch of African AmeriKKKan gang members in the entire song singing with him, those are his boys and if they didnt knock him out or feel disrespected why should anyone else? My take it people just want to have some shit to complain about, example, when Jlo in “Im Real” written and produced by Ja Rule said “I tell them n**gas mind they business but they dont here me though” it was controversial from a Latina from the Bronx??‍♀️ and a Black man wrote the word for her to sing. It’s truly all in how you use it and who you say it to. Like a trump supporter calling me the with an GGER, they meant it to hurt me meant it to make me feel low, now they’re stomped out low, simple!
