Twitter “Niggers” and Twitter “Niggaz”-A Collage of Ignorance

Carter G. Woodson, The Miseducation of the Negro


When you control a man’s thinking you do not have to worry about his actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder. He will find his ‘proper place’ and will stay in it. You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is no back door, he will cut one for his special benefit. His education makes it necessary.

Here’s what they think about you…




















 

You know, I like to have fun online and in my spare time. I do find it a little demeaning however when an organization such as twitter finds it in good tastes to exploit the merriment of those who work the hardest to keep a stream of content flowing. One thing I have learned to be embarrassed about when it comes to my people, is our lack of acute awareness with regards our cultural powers. American Blacks hold a sway on this social universe that is often incomprehensible. What would Twitter be if the American Blacks that are using it decided not to for a week? Would the advertisers who just signed a deal with the major decision makers behind Twitter feel a financial crunch?

 

It is one thing to be a coon, and I’ll admit, some of us are cooning a bit too much. But I really feel hurt seeing the coons being recording for sport and economic gains. The world is still watching the American Slaves, and the world is still doing nothing…the slaves are still relying on their saints, scholars, killers, and dealers to save them from themselves…

  1. There’s no difference to me – the fools who say that there’s a difference between “n—a” & “n—-r” and the dirt-bags who freely use “n—-r” are one in the same, in my opinion. Both groups are ignorant, despicable assholes.

    Reading that garbage just made my headache worse.

    If I remember correctly, the Irish are the ones who made the word, initially pronounced and spelled “naygur”. Whoever used the word first, may they rot in hell (if hell exists anywhere other than Earth).

    What a disgusting word. So glad I no longer use it.

    1. There is an obvious context, and I tried to play on it. In this instance, I would have to totally agree. Although I have no problem spicing my work with the term, I do notice that I don’t use it outside of a shock type discussion. Not making any excuses, because the more I look into this mirror of sorts, the more I want to change the present reflection screaming back at me.

  3. I figured that you used it for context and shock value because of your dragon-hood.

    Nothing wrong with looking at the man in the mirror.

    1. DRAGON-HOOD!! Hahahah!! YOU!!!

      Yeah, I’m trying to back away from the word outside of that. A difficulty with its own habitual energies, but I’m heading in the direction of eliminating it from my vocabulary.

  5. It is definitely troubling to see “nigger” so many times and with such disdain behind it…but I’m so glad you exposed the other side of Twitter, and quite frankly the other side of America. This is proof that our complacency as a culture, if continued, will lead to continued oppression. Take it how you want…but I don’t see the use of the word “niggaz” in and of itself a bad thing. Nor will I blame the victim for the actions of the oppressor. With that said, I’m generally bothered by the negativity we show each other as Black people, the lack of revolution/awareness of our power, and our complacency as it relates to the fight for freedom. I think it’s time WE stop blaming ourselves, and start loving and valuing ourselves…as this is when change can be seen. We can’t measure progress by how many times the word “niggaz” is used.

    1. Brilliant!!

      Yeah, um, i think the exposure is not even enough. I wish more people would screenshot what is done on twitter. As you write, we have been given the opportunity to see the other side of the USA with regard to the white/black socio-cultural dichotomy. I seriously would like to believe that we are progressing because of comments like the one you are making. We are still producing great minds, the problem is we are not producing great mainstream reflections of our culture. It is really is time again for the Nefertiti heads and Afrikan medalions…with a key!!

  7. DrDia I agree with you 100%. The use or non use of the word nigga is not gonna make us rise or fall as a ppl. I think we’re giving our enemies toooooo much power by CONTINUING to get offended by the use of this word. If u are not a “nigger”, “nigga” or whatever, why get mad and react like one when the oppressor uses the word- you just gave them power. It’s like if a man calls me a bitch, why cuss him out and react out of emotional habit- then I’m proving what he just said is true! Same goes for the n-word. *sigh* Im just happy to see someone else on the same page as me! Great post asylum…I love all ur work 🙂 *BluntLuv**
