THE NIGGER TAPE

I have yet been able to think of the right thing to say about the use of the word nigger. I still can’t fathom the thought of people still using this word in association with the the black/African-American/Negro race. I can’t believe that after all these years people still consider themselves, Nigger. Huh, what are you saying, is there a difference between being a Nigger and you being my Nigga. Ummmmmm, don’t know I guess it’s like beauty and it’s in the eye of the beholder. However, how come whenever we as black people (or whatever it is today you call us) take injustice, poverty, sorrow, the end result of slavery, in short the negative views and periods in time that Black people been through and turn that shit around and make it positive and popular and now everyone wants to be a nigga too. Only then is it bad, but it wasn’t bad when we were wallowing in our misery and being exploited and being used for free labor. Now, we have created something from nothing, the Hip Hop industry (which is world wide) and now everything we do , done and thinking about doing is being watched and monitor and censored many times before. Have you ever though about what if there was no Hip Hop what society would be like? Better off, maybe or would we have created something else for you to criticize and all the while want to be a apart of. Let it be known that not all of it has been good, but we have seen some glimpses of greatness from our era. I have lived to see some amazing things and you know what? We are heading for some even better times. Everything comes full circle and they said Hip Hop was dead and I could see all the big smiles across the faces of the people who would love that. Let me ask you, can you plant a rose in the ghetto and expect that rose to grow? It’s not over baby, it’s just beginning.
