The View – Racism

Views given from different sides/shades. Rosie Perez is on point.

My view: White people, don’t say nigga/nigger. You’re not Black and your ancestors and those kin who inherited the same toxic mindset use(d) this term to degrade our people. It’s a line that should not be crossed whether you are infatuated | love Black culture or if you hate us. Either there is a pure love for us, infatuation (via an unconscious racist lens) or hate.

Yes, some Black people have flipped nigger to nigga, it’s a double entendre. But, that is for Blacks only to make the conscious decision to take from a negative and turn into a positive something which historically was used as a weapon against us.
