U can’t be respectful if u don’t understand ur disrespect. My father’s people. My people. Such a people… such a history. I had a man recently get angry at me for being offended by constantly letting the hideous and ignorant word nigga come out of his mouth. If u only knew the Origins and intent used behind the use of this devil’s creation of a word. It’s like it’s original users were saying “ hey u, with no soul or human value!” “ hey u animal, who’s children I can sell, who’s women I can rape, who’s men I can falsely charge and hang from light poles and trees like outlaws and deer carcasses!” Hey, Nigger!”… hard to hear? It’s the way I talk he said… well learn a different way my friend! Turn off that mind destroying and soul misleading gangster rap music and educate urself on the word’s true history! I’m black and native. Two cultures with a mountain full of historical trauma.. I refuse to continue On spitting on the graves of my righteous and innocent ancestors by glorifying the very boots that stood on their necks as they were kidnapped for labor or had they’re villages burned down so settlers could start logging companies. Nigga??? Please, miss me with it…show some respect. It’s not cool and it’s far from cute…it’s evil.
