That’s how I felt at first, but I’m sort of wondering if it’s a comment on the audience.
Ovarian cancer. In a flashback in the episode of (I think) season three where they’re trying to decide on a cause for a fundraiser, George reads off suggested causes and one of them is ovarian cancer. He rolls his eyes and says something like, “I wonder who wrote that.”
This is the kind of anon I like.
You forgot to be anonymous on the second part of this. I’m not going to post it. Here are my final words on this subject. My observation of racist bullshit is not what makes racism happen. Racists make racism happen. Me noticing how excited these white teenagers are to yell “nigga” did not make any of those things I mentioned in previous posts happen. People who want to call me or people like me niggers aren’t looking at my blog and waiting for me to call out racist bullshit so they have an excuse. They’re going to do it anyway. So putting the blame on me is completely ridiculous. Pointing out racism is not part of a “circle of hate.” That I even had to explain that is absurd.
I’m sick of white people trying to tell me how to feel about racist bullshit. You wouldn’t be on this “words are just words” shit if you had ever tasted oppression. When a word is used against people who look like you to dehumanize them for centuries, then hurled at you personally while your head is slammed into lockers and concrete patios, while you walk down the street, for having the nerve to piss off a white person, for daring to flirt with a white woman, come talk to me, motherfucker. Until then, kiss both sides and the middle of my ass, drink a bottle of bleach, and get the fuck off my blog, you halfwit child.
You know that’s not the only place in the song where “nigga” is said, right? And that there are other hip-hop shows, where other songs are played, so when I talk about hip-hop shows in a general sense, I’m not just talking about this one video? That sometimes people see one thing and it reminds them of another thing, so they talk about the bigger picture?
You’re just kind of stupid.
My problem isn’t saying it. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I prefer people to sing all of the words when singing along to a song, because replacing them comes off condescending and goes against the artist’s intent and not saying them at all sounds stilted and awkward. The problem is how damn enthusiastic white kids get about singing that word in particular. What makes you so fucking excited about yelling the n-word loudly, ostensibly directly at a black person? The way the volume goes up with every instance of “nigga” in every song at a hip-hop show with a primarily white audience, the way white kids yell “[insert reference to the artist or pseudohood slang from the ’90s], NIGGA!” at the top of their lungs between songs, that’s what bothers me. It’s the delight being taken in it.
I like the look and feel of them. I don’t want to hunt, and I definitely never want to use a gun on a person, but I could see myself maybe going to the range at some point. Most likely, though, I will probably just take pictures with my friends’ fake guns and play laser tag when possible.
