When it comes to White rappers using the “n-word,” newbies disagree
To N-Bomb or not to N-Bomb…
This is one of those moments where I find myself playing catch up — because I tend to ignore stupid shit — even though I was remotely aware of the controversy surrounding the Bay Area’s White female rapper Kreayshawn , her White Girl Mob and their use of the “N-word.”
In particular, White Girl Mob ‘s V-Nasty has released a statement defending her use of the term as well as her overall “hood” demeanor.
“Am I offending people? Am I saying it in a disrespectful way?” says V-Nasty . She continues, “don’t be tryna change up my vocabulary ’cause I’m on and I got out the hood.”
Their White Rapper comrade, Ohio’s Machine Gun Kelly , feels a little differently about the usage of the word as expressed in a recent interview with XXL Magazine .
The brand new addition to Bad Boy Records feels the word is extremely disrespectful especially considering his daughter is half Black.
“The only ‘N-word’ I’m using is ‘ninjas…'” says MGK , “ ‘nipples’ perhaps is my favorite ‘N-word.'”
About the only sense V-Nasty makes in her video rant is that repeatedly overused terms like “acting White” and “acting Black” are ridiculous and poorly-conceived.
As a person of color who has heard “why do you act or speak so White?” from the time I was six years old, I agree with her sentiment that she should be allowed to act… well however she wants.
I’m also not outraged at her use of the “N-Word” as I quickly became adjusted to hearing young White kids, Arab kids, Latino kids, etc. all referring to themselves and eachother as “Niggas” in New York City.
Granted, I’ll tell anyone — White, Black or Green — not to address me as any such thing… this usually takes repeating.
When it comes down to it, why bother being upset when the debate still rages within the Black community itself as to whether the word should be discontinued or accepted for its “endearing” charm?
Why bother hissing and booing when prominent Black rappers like Jay-Z completely justify the usage of the “N-word” claiming that it gives Blacks some kind of “ownership of the word?”
Summing it up perfectly, Haterazzi describes V-Nasty as “a goofy inbred fetal alcohol syndrome White hoodrat reflecting the chosen mindstate of your accepted genre. Your top representative claims to be a ‘Barbie.'”
While watching V-Nasty , it’s clear that she is deeply convinced that the way she acts has been determined by where she grew up and if that’s the case, so be it. As for whether White kids should be calling even themselves or anyone else “niggas,” have at it!
Enjoy all of the perks of being a “nigga” such as the very convenient “third class citizenship” reward! If Whites kids are willing to embrace being the lowest denominator, I feel almost obligated to laugh hysterically.
