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.

BILAL

The animated film Bilal is inspired by the true story of Bilal Ibn Rabaha freed slave of Ethiopian origin who converted to Islam and became a trusted companion of the Prophet Muhammad after his emancipation. Impressed by Bilal’s sonorous voice and unwavering faith, Muhammad handpicked him to call Muslims to prayer as Islam’s first muezzin. Bilal’s descendants are also believed to have established the Mali Empire’s Keita Dynasty.

Bilal was a black slave, almost certainly the son of slaves, and is believed to have been from Abyssinia (now known as Ethiopia).  Being born into servitude, he probably never expected life to offer him more than hard work, pain and drudgery.  However Bilal walked the earth at a very momentous time.  He was a slave in the city of Mecca when an unlettered man began to call the people to worship One God.  This man was Muhammad, the Messenger of God, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, and his message was for all of humanity.
