DUTY, HONOR AND RESPONSIBILITY
Points needed: 121
I just saw something truly stupid. As the story goes an African American rapper invited a white fan on stage to sing with him. The song had the N word as part of the lyrics and he told her she was not allowed to sing the N word. Now I got to tell you this is not only truly stupid, but looks like a form of entrapment to me. Think about this a minute. The girl was a fan so she liked him and his music. He asked her on stage to sing with him, knowing fully well what the words to his song were. So why in the world would he tell her she could not sing the song THE WAY IT WAS WRITTEN? SERIOUSLY! Why would you ask someone to sing a song with you and then get all bent out of shape when they sing it the way it was written.
What really makes me mad is the girl apologized for doing what he asked her to. HE ASKED HER TO SING WITH HIM. I got one thing to say to ALL song writers and performers ,IF YOU DO NOT WANT PEOPLE TO SING CERTAIN WORDS LIKE THAT DO NOT PUT THEM IN THE DANG SONGS IN THE FIRST PLACE. Which brings me to the next thought why the hell do African Americans call one another that N word when they have a fit if any other race call them it????
I actually asked a few young African Americans that very question last summer. They had an interesting explanation. They told me I was not hearing them correctly they said they were not saying the N word I thought they were saying. They told me they were saying Nigga and that to them it means like brother. Now this came from the teens using the word, so I am going to accept that as true. Thing is what people do not realize is not everyone hear the words the way you are pronouncing them or meaning them.
I think people would get along better if everyone would just see each other for who they are inside and not the color of the skin.
