You just might be the dumbest person on this board.

Trying to read your grammar, dare I call it that, is like getting raped by a bear, only more painful. Grow up and come back to this board after you get out of middle school. Not to mention you have Sebastian Telfair in your avatar

At the end of the show. The guy who was doing the interviews. (not sure who it was) said that its up to you (the black people) to decide how that word should be used. If at all.

well that doesnt make sense, because "you (the black people)" refers to every black man on the planet....

tats too broad.. tats refering to every single black man... u cant figure out every single one of them... some might use it liberally while others won't... theres no way to see how "the black people" use it....

if the interview dude really said that, hes just trying to say that black people decided to use it without respect to the past, but theres also black brothers that dont use it and he wouldn't know... u see wat im sayin???!?

It is up to YOU the black people. If you accept use of the word. Than white people will use it... If you don't than they won't.

Im from Australia though, so its hardly even an issue here since not many black people live here.

So you are white, and you say something like "what up my n!gga" to your white friends? Tell me how that makes any sense whatsoever.. Because of "pop culture?" wow..

It doesn't matter if we PERSONALLY stop using the word. As someone said before, rappers and hip-hop artists have a large affect on the general acceptance of it. For example, lets say that every black person in a given area decides to stop using the word.. ok, that's all fine and good. Will that stop people from using it if they hear 50, Luda, Kanye, etc.. using it on a daily basis? I doubt it.

Rap is a minsterel show for the most part. Sort of hard to ask them to stop acting like savage beasts, when that's all they know. I'd love to hear what kind of positive change these idiots feel that they have brought about over the past 20 years of "reclaiming ownership" of the word. And making millions of dollars for themselves doesn't really count in this case.

Anybody see Oprah today? Stanley Crouch pwned Russel Simmons, and some dumbass Steven A Smith wannabe (the VP of Warner Bros! )

Common was there too. So I guess 50 can't say she doesn't put rappers on the show anymore.
