What’s Wrong With (Some) Black People

Warning: This is going to be a lengthy blog post. You have been warned.

As a Black woman, it irks me to no end when I see or hear some Black people call each other N*gga. Some foolishly think it’s okay because some Black actors and rappers made it seem “cool” to use such a demeaning word in their movies and music. Newsflash! Just because you drop the –ER– and add an – A– at the end, that doesn’t make it any better. 🤦🏾‍♀️

Truth be told, when Black people call each other this derogatory word, they look so ignorant. Millions of other Black people agree with me. Some of the same Black people who freely use the word N*gga will get mad if a person from another race calls them a N*gga. Why? Because they see that as offensive. Whew Chile! The plum foolery! Calling each other that word should be offensive regardless of who says it. 🤦🏾‍♀️

If you are a self-respecting Black person who doesn’t want to be called a N*gger, why or earth would you think it’s okay to be called a N*gga? Think about that for a second. Seriously, some Black people need to educate themselves before jumping on the band wagon with everyone else. Some of you are seriously out here looking silly. Get your mind right and get it together!

If I refuse to allow a person to call me a N*gger to my face, what makes you think I will allow a Black person to call me a N*gga to my face? 🤔 You better say it behind my back or under your breath so I can’t hear you. Some Black people are purposefully giving power to a word that was used for many years to disrespect and demean their ancestors, grandparents and parents. Why on earth would you want to do something so hurtful and dumb?

Knowledge is power. Some of you really need to get some because you are walking around here looking mentally weak and foolish. From one Black person to another, do better because you should know better. Yes, I said it. All of it!

Until next time…

  1. 🙂I agree. We should eradicate that word from our vocabulary.

    And, we should boycott music artistes and movie stars who portray that type of behaviour.

    Do let the younger generation in your community know that calling their African brothers and sisters by those derogatory terms is an act of ignorance.

  2. I’m white and my husband is black. When we first met, he used the n-bomb freely, as did his friends. After several lengthy heart-felt conversations, they all stopped using that word in front of me. Personally, I don’t have the right to be offended when they call each other that but that doesn’t mean that I can’t feel the pain associated with its history.

    1. Indeed, it’s a very hurtful word because of the history behind it. Any variation of that word is derogatory and shouldn’t be used at all. I’m so glad to hear your husband and his friends no longer use such a demeaning word. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
