Why do people insist on calling yourselves Nigga’z or blacks?
Who started these bogus words? Racist men did and if people are happy being degraded for the sake of racist people it’s your choice.
Just remember black is the opposite of white yet none of us are black, but brown. I wouldn’t be proud of calling myself black, I’m insulted by the word as much as I’m insulted by the word nigga, I don’t have black skin, I don’t have black eyes, hell I don’t even have black hair. I’m brown like all African descendants. The sooner people realize that calling ourselves black is intended as an insult the sooner we will move on. Also Negro, nigger and nigga are racist terms, they all had the same meaning as black at one point and nothing has changed. The meaning of a word stays the same no matter who uses it and regardless of how you mean it. Nigga is as racist when a black person says it as it is when a white person says it. The individual using the word doesn’t have to be racist for the word to have racist meanings behind it.
I hear people everywhere saying whass up nigga and stuff, I’m not joking if anyone calls me a nigga they better hope they know me because I’ll kick their head in. I personally would like to be called African, and if you want to get more technical I’m Ugandan, but if you’re willing to specify a little more I’m of the Lango tribe lol. But honestly black and nigga are very degrading words… and how come so many things beginning with black have bad meanings, when white is always good, pure or innocence,
For example: black lie (which is the worst type of lie), black heart (evil or heartless), black whole (its not even black its invisible), black cat (honestly its getting ridicules), black magic (which is evil witchcraft) and when thinking of the word black what comes to mind? Mourning, darkness, doubt, ignorance, uncertainty, evil, hate, night. There are not always bad things linked to black but the majority is negative.
Anyway please look up these books and look at the subject of calling people black and the negative implications of the words:
