A white student asks author if it's cool to rap along to songs with the n-word in it, and Coates responds brilliantly.

The only issue is with his explanation. No he doesn't join in with his wife and her friends, but no-one is going to accuse a man that says "bitch" of being an automatic sexist. The girl asking the question couldnt even say 'The N Word' while discussing 'The N Word' just incase.

In a society where the end goal is for everyone to be equal it's ironic that that when a kid asks why he gets in trouble for saying that but his black friend doesnt, the answer is "Because he's different than you"

Equality isn't the correct basis for the argument that you're attempting to bring clarity to. While equality relates to certain rights, it doesn't directly correlate with a white person right to use words that classify many dif. groups of ppl.

It's offensive for a white person to say it. Let's not ignore history. We'll never let go of what y'all tell us to get over. Y'all used to say it with a hard "er" at the end to demean us. Fast forward, we took it, flipped it, and made it work to our benefit.

So much so, y'all now think it's so fucking cool, y'all want to use it again. To that, me & my Niggas say, "Nah Hoe." We don't know what your heart truly is just like we don't know the face of the cowards under them white hoods. Ya dig?

This is not a diss or cause for further division. We're simply saying respect our boundaries. You're not gang, so you can't bang that word.

I prefer the “use the word until it loses its meaning” method. I don’t call black people (or anyone) “niggers,” but I will say “nigga” as a replacement for the more common “dude” or “bro.” He also ignores that “honey”/“hun”is used in much the same way. Context matters.

Context like the hundreds of years of chattel slavery and Jim Crow laws and continuing discrimination behind the n-word, which "honey" completely lacks? Nice try asshole

Literally no one is STOPPING you from saying it, you're just mad that he's saying why you SHOULDN'T. How exactly do you justify demanding the right to say what you want without consequence while telling people you disagree with to shut up?

My point wasn't for the ability to yell slurs, It is literally a case ive seen. A mother telling her young son why he's in trouble for saying that word. No racial tones, he literally heard his black friend say it and then having to explain the differences because of their colour.

So you're saying people should be allowed to use slurs because if they aren't white people might have to learn history? Tragic :'(
