Comment on Riley Cooper and the N-Word: It’s Not Just What He Said by Skip http://sportssense.net/?p=2223&cpage=1#comment-164356 Fri, 02 Aug 2013 22:00:47 +0000 http://sportssense.net/?p=2223#comment-164356 Sorry David, even though you stated the n-word rules as well as anyone, we as African Americans have to accept our own responsibility for the continued prevalence of this word being used as an expression of hate.

You say “It is uttered proudly as a greeting by many African Americans, and used to spice up years and years of Hip Hop and Rap song lyrics…” But if we are really being honest, we have to acknowledge that African Americans often use the n-word with each other in a manner that is derogatory, disrespectful, demeaning or dismissive, just listen to those same Hip Hop and Rap lyrics or ride the bus with some young teenagers.

And unfortunately, the n-word is too often used among African Americans to express anger, hate or even murderous intention towards each other. Our use of the n-word is more a reflection of self hate than pride. We can express righteous outrage about Riley Cooper, but we can’t totally separate his use of the n-word from our own perpetuation of the worst that this word represents.
