Last week President Barack Obama started a bunch of whining by saying a word.
“Racism, we are not cured of it. And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public.”
I’ve been saying it for years, and now Obama has made it official. Yes, sometimes it is okay to say the word nigger.
When is it okay? Well, whenever you are not using the word to insult or denigrate another person. You cannot call someone a nigger. That’s obvious.
But what if there is a movie that uses the word a few hundred times. Then, it is perfectly okay to say “Django Unchained uses the word nigger 213 times.” The word is not harming anyone. It is simply stating a fact. It’s just a word. Get over it.
Only Black People Can Use the Word Nigger
Black people will say that only black people can say the word nigger. But black people have been fighting for equal rights for decades. “Equal” rights. That means black people have the right to do anything that white people (or any other person, whatever color they are) are allowed to do.
But doesn’t it follow that white people should be allowed to do anything that black people are allowed to do? That’s what “equal” means, isn’t it? If a black person can say nigger shouldn’t a white person be able to say nigger? You can’t have it both ways. We are either all equal and are all allowed to use the word or we are all equal and nobody is allowed to use the word.
How to Teach Your Child the N-Word
Besides, how are we going to teach our children not to say that word if we can’t tell them what the word is?
Parent: You cannot say the N-word.
Child: Which N-word.
Parent: I’m not allowed to say it. Just don’t use it.
Child: Nascar? Noodles? Numbskull? Nasty?
Parent: Shut up! Just don’t say the N-word! Go to your room!
