For the most part there won't be any profanity used by me unless it is used within context to describe
something like "hell on earth" or "bull----" My main concern was the n-word because I don't know if people within this forum use it as slang. I don't use it that much, but I do want our people to overcome that barrier by realizing it means "Never Ignorant Getting Goals Accomplished", an acronym by Tupac Shakur. We would do better if we reacted to words differently and come up with our own definitions instead of allowing society to dictate words for us. =) All peace and love to my people.

@One-Hundredd ... OMG ... this is very interesting! I do agree with you, while we have not allowed the N word here ever, I am softening on it. I have never spoke on this and have not changed the fact that it does not appear if you type it out - it is replaced with asterisks - but my thoughts are and have been changing.

I heard a Brother speaking on the N word in a video and he really changed my mind on it. I think I was already moving in that way and his words tipped me right on over the edge ... :)

I may start a thread on the word, get a collective consensus on it, see if we are mature enough to handle it ourselves as well as when others join us and use it. Do we really want to open the door to it. If we make it okay for us to use here, then we have to be able to take it when others walk right in and use it ... :box: ... :) ... OMG ... that may be too much. It may be the reason nothing has changed in the community as it relates to the word, as thinking on it in this aspect gives me shivers. While I want everything, every word, available to us - it must be easily manageable and I am not sure it will be.

:thinking:

I certainly use the word on occasion and can get with it as evidenced here :




But that does not mean the community / discussions can do that. I cuss too on occasion, but not here.

:thinking:

I will tag you if / when I make the thread about it.

At this point, the above stands as is - the word will be asterisked out if you use it, but there is nothing wrong with saying - Never Ignorant Getting Goals Accomplished.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Much Love and Peace.

:heart:

Well since we're being honest here lol I do use it outside in my personal life but only because I've understood the term of endearment and the acronym for it. Also Negus is a royal Ethiopian title for "King" "Lord" or Emperor. I have a tattoo of part of the word on my left chest with a crown. Rehashing Excellence After Liberation Never Ignorant Getting Goals Accomplished (R.E.A.L. N.I.G.G.A) The crown is a royal diadem of integrity and in cohesive to a set of moral codes I live by, and the Negus' word's original intent. I also read Law 34 of the book 48 Laws Of Power and got inspired to create an image of that tattoo. NGR meant GOD in* Kemet history or at least that what I saw on a picture I saved once. You can see the picture of my tattoo on Facebook if I cant post it here...I'll post the picture I'm referencing in regards to NGR - God and Negus

Yes @One-Hundredd ... that is what the Brother was talking about in the video I mentioned earlier. Yes Yes Yes! That it is ours anyway. I will try to find that video too and share it as well. Thank you for sharing too. We are on the same page it seems.

Again, the challenge is not just that I use the word, or think it is okay to use - but how easy will it be to moderate in an environment where all are welcome. How will we respond to others using it as they see fit, with no knowledge, understanding, or even desire to consider it respectfully. That is part of my challenge / consideration as it relates to the community.

But yes, we are together ... :love:

Much Love and Peace.

Destee,
is this to be open decision to be made by the community aired and commented on by us or something decided between you and the moderators only?
