    and be reading what ppl say about Chief Keef
    they say he is uneducated and unsophisticated
    and he uses the "N" word all the time
    I doubt he saying it in the context of
    never ignorant getting goals accomplished

    but hey we are all grown
    if you call me the "N" word
    you might as well call
    me
    jungle bunny or tarbaby or coon

    we need to break those words up and make them positive or just the "N" word ??? why only the "N" not the other slurs against Black ppl????????????????????

    Nigga=dude, bruh, guy,pal, bud. That's the context of what I see most people use the word. That's the main reason why I've never really had a problem with it being said. And have never tripped out if I hear a white dude say it in that same context. It's the intent behind the word that makes it an insult to me.

    For example. A white dude comes up and says "what's up my nigga" no problem with me.

    A black dude comes up and says "You ain't nothing but a nigga and you stuck in that nigga mentality" Problem. In that example the word is being used purposely as a put down.

    But this is just my opinion though. I never focus on words. I focus on the intent of the user and the context of which it is use.

    On a side note. I believe too many people look for a white person to slip up and say nigga so they can crucify the person for say it, but they never notice when that same white person can't treat you like one. That's always been ass backwards to me.
    , and like this.

    Excluding the word nigga and common curse words and exchanging them for a different word only helps your vocabulary and make you unique my opinion

    I swear niggas that don't like that word don't understand that niggas aren't "niggers", and that giving a word the power to insult you isn't a smart thing to do.

    Instead of wanting others to change, accept what you can and can't do and don't act like a b!tch nigga* when someone says those words

    *: B!tch nigga: someone who is reactionary/emotional/confrontational

    'Nigga' is jus a fxckin' word, we give it its power through intent. Im SOOOOO tired of cats gettin up in arms about the word 'nigga' but have no clue or don't care about the social climate that created it along with the emotions and sub context attached to it. Ok, lets say niggaz stopped using 'nigga' altogether, a billion words would be created or re-lexified to fill in the gap. Its foolish to think that you can change socio-political issues by not using a word. Period. If someone looks at us and thinks somethin' racist, taking a word away from them won't take away the emotions that were attached to it. And for HEAVEN SAKE stop over exaggerating how cats use 'nigga' to make it seem like its purely negative. Any word that is a noun, pronoun, adjective, verb, etc, etc, etc, is bound to have a few different definitions, not all of them positive, the problem is that few words CAN be used in so many completely different contexts

    By the way, there are plenny dudes who use the word 'nigga' but have a big enough vocabulary to never use it. Words are tools, use them when they're appropriate. Yeah, some words are overused but thats no excuse to limit our tools

    I think every human being is reactionary/emotional/confrtontational
    because that's human being
    *****=female dog
    nigga=dude,friend(this the definition given by another FP member)

    now ppl are acting???
    I don't need to change anyone one
    the power of Christ to does that

    but the question was asked if the word was tooken out of rap songs would it be good of course

    why was the "N" word choosen to be change and made from a insult to a common "greeting" filler word???
    why not coon change it to coona
    why not jungle bunny change it to jungle bunna
    why not Tarbaby change it to tarbaba

    many folks find it insulting period

    most find cussing insulting

    but everyone is grown...I just find grown "MEN" who are respectful don't need to use such words
    actually I find "Men" who use such words as weak minded and ignorant
    that's doesn't mean they're aren't intelligent
    but I like to hear you use these explanation when talking to a white supremacist
    he/she would probably laugh so hard in your face

    but hey not time for a history lesson but you can watch these and understand you should hold yourself to a higher standard
    not because you're black because hopefully you had "home training" where you were taught to speak respectfully
    I agree social norms change from place to place and who you're around
    if everyone you know cussing and says "nigga" you are more likely to say it
    but if it's such a common and acceptable word WHY IS IT BEEPED OUT??????
    call me by my name please that's all I'm saying period
    who is "my nigga"
    my parents named me Antonio
    again everyone has to chose how they speak and behave
    Rpalos are you cool with all races saying "nigga" not nigger but "nigga"???????????????????????????/

    There's still part of me that thinks the word is used subconciously to hold whites down or back in a way, or like the guy said above, to crucify us for it if it ever comes out. I'm white myself, and I'm in college. When I chill with my black friends, I swear to god they use it 10x as much when we're all chilling. But when I'm chilling with them like 1-on-1, it NEVER comes out. Maybe it's just cause I'm white they don't use it, but I can't think they really use it that much all the time when we hang together and then it never comes out when I'm with them. Maybe I'm crazy though lol.

    As far as if music would still be good without it, yes. In today's age at least, because all the music and rap today is beat-driven instead of lyrically driven (with a few exceptions of course.)

    the words black (to some extent) and negro are just as bad as nigga and nigger. i remember malcolm x would only say negro if he had to or he would say "so called negros"
