This thing over the "n" word...
I look at it like this:
If I hear a yt person calling another yt person a "honkey", I don't figure
that to give me privilege to call that person a honkey. Unless I meant
to be offensive.
Or if I hear one of my friends call his girl/wife by a pet name, that does not
give me province to call her by that pet name.
thats a nice version.. I broke it down to this one dude like this:
"I can't pat your wife on the as*, can I?" Why not? you can pat it,
how come I can't pat it?".. after the redness passed he understood
what I was saying.. I don't use the word on a regular basis, but when
I do use it it's contextually appropriate.. Paul Mooney is talking about his
role in making the word cool.. and he's talking about his personal role in that
going back 40 years.. Richard came to the same conclusion.. and it really
had to do with recognizing how their art was being used against their own
people.. you know, how you talk different when you have company or when
white folks is listening.. Their are things we can say and ways we can be
within the relative privacy of our own communities that would be completely
misunderstood out in mainstream culture.. so it's about context.. that's
why I can't pat his wife on the as*.. well I could but it would most likely
be misunderstood.. or not.
black anglo saxon lol the massacard lol hahahahahahahaha. In his early days i guess he wanted to kill the bite of the N word, but now realizes it's not good in any form. When you look at the true basis of the word and the origin of why it was used, one should refrain from using the word. Out of respect for the ancestors alone, if nothing else.
Mooney is a beast!
52 cards, ha!
I can't help but think that the Sista is going "this dude crazy". She only saying "mhm, mhm, mhm".
OH MY GOD.
