The illusion that the street name for "idiot slave" is synonymous with a culture and its strength is ludicrously grandiose. You rarely complain when the white community says it while it helps you grind one out. Why should you expect white people to stop saying the word if you can't? Please tell your non-black fans not to buy your music, it's not appreciated and you don't need the money because you do it for the art.
You can't even stand up to your own brothers for calling your mothers, sisters and daughters hos and bitches or defending them from the "me too" movement, why should we expect a humane response for global respect. We are the ones that suffer the consequences and unless you have room in your jet for the entire community to fly out when it gets frantic, I suggest you keep the word to yourself. I refuse to be an "idiot slave."
I’m allowed to use the "n" word. I don’t because the connotation is ugly. We need to learn our history and respect it. The people who suffered are not here and the instigators long died out. I dislike the word because its archaic and incapacitating. If you are constantly haunted by a word, get rid of it. It hasn’t changed anyone's life for the better and its impolite to be holding people who don't understand hostage for a word that picks its own master. That is not a stand for equality its a fight for exclusivity. Half the advantage of buying and listening to music is repeating the words. Bieber wasn't held accountable but Bill Maher was when they each said it. The experience of buying and listening to music is so people can sing along. If you don't want other people to sing it don't write it in (artists work best under restrictions.) Our ancestors would not appreciate its use and you might be able to suppress the chokehold white America has over your community because you showed them your kryptonite. Everyone will be accountable and Tarantino will have an unfinished script for his next film. 21-May-2018
I understand that my witticisms may sometimes be misconstrued as a societal insult. I'm attempting to solidify all the communities so when they come for us they wont be able to use anything against us. I am constantly determined to be an improved human being even when the hate beats me. I've lived life long enough to see it repeat itself. I wanted to give everyone a heads up. The only way to end the cycle of hostility is to give up on the guarantees of a lifestyle that doesn't allow forward movement, listen to each other, empathize with one another and compromise for the benefit of all of us. You can't preach like Jesus unless you live like him. Oh no, I did it again. We're learning together. 23-Mar-2018
My lover and I moved to an up and coming gay community so we wouldn't have to suffer the vulgarities of living in a mostly Republican state. We've never been more lonely and friendless. I've yet to see the media campaign they thrive on put to practice and they are too busy cloning themselves to notice that they have no patience for differences of any sort. As a mixed raced couple every out is a gamble. Youngsters always seem the nicest but they are few, the wisers tend to stick with Gladys Kravitz civility and hidden Trumpet leniency. Irony. 11-Jan-2018
