BEING A NIGGER AIN'T BAD (its the crabs ya gotta worry about)


You know what? You niggers kill me! Yeah I said nigger. What? I use the word all the time. Surprised? Well I hope you're not. Maybe by the end of this blog you won't feel so bad about it. You see, allegedly Jesse Jackson used the word in reference to Barack Obama. And all I hear or see around here are opinions typical of niggers in this country.

"Fuck Jesse Jackson he's a hater, that fool is just jealous!!"

Yup, that seems to be the popular opinion these days. Some of you call him a hypocrite, but hey, this is America, who the fuck isn't. Lemme guess, did you think Jesse has never used that word. Hopefully you didn't think he's never heard it used before. You see, the word nigger is as American as baseball and apple pie. Its a part of our culture, and the American experience. For me to not use the word would mean that slavery never existed, and life is great for all people of color. Most people are offended by the word, but the thought of life being "great" for niggers is whats offensive to me. The word nigger is responsible for the necessary sucess of men like Jesse Jackson. If it wasn't for the creators of the word (i.e. racist white people) back in the day, there would be no need for the civil rights movement, or people like Jesse Jackson. But here we are in 2008 and people seek to distance themselves from the word.

All of a sudden "Fight The Power" has been replaced by "Yes We Can". I have to shake my head when I look at some of you niggers with that bullshit. Listen here nigger, if you truly think that you're above the use of that word you're a fool. If you're black in America, thats what you are. Don't get mad at me, its the fuckin rule of the land. Unfortunately the term African-American didn't erase our history. So I really don't care what you call yourself these days because we'll always have to come up with a new label for ourselves in this country. I mean think about it. We're probably the only race of people in America who had to officially change our name to please ourselves. But are we really trying to please ourselves? How much better were we when we stopped being colored and became negros? How much better were we when we went from negros to black people? How much better did we become when we went from Black people to African Americans? No matter how many times we changed our representative name, our perception has not been changed by the majority. Sure those African Americans have come a long way, but the minute they voice their opinions they're perceived as being a bunch of angry, ungrateful, dare I say...NIGGERS.

And us niggers in our ignorance, we do the same thing. Look at the way some of you talk shit about Jesse Jackson. But yet we criticize other niggers and are quick to label them as being "crabs in a bucket". If thats not the most tired cliche to describe niggers I don't know what is. The niggers who are quick to refer to this behavior are often the ones who are so ignorant to see the error in their ways. They never have a problem, yet they're stuck in the bucket like the rest of us niggers. Let them tell it, niggers who complain are stuck in the past; this is 2008, and that black power shit isn't necessary. We're our own worst enemy is what niggers like that often say. They sure do. They're quick at identifying problems, but rarely do they offer solutions. If that doesn't sound like a crab move then I don't know what is.

"But you ain't doin anything different RiPPa."

I know I'm not. I never said I wasn't a nigger. As a matter of fact, I embrace my niggerdom. I even do it so much that I DO show you niggers the error in your niggerish ways. I even go as far as to uplift you niggers from time to time. And in doing so, I never spare a moment to point the finger where it's deserved to be pointed. There is a certain level of objectivity in my niggerdom. Gimme a fuckin break, I am a nigger, and I'll always be a nigger in America until they kick me out this bitch. And that is the reason the word doesn't offend me.

"Everybody wanna be a nigger but don't nobody wanna be a nigger."- Paul Mooney

As people, I think we give certain words too much power. People get offended by the word nigger, but I rarely see them get upset or offended if refered to as an asshole. But then, there's a double standard with certain words. Thats bullshit too, and it shows just how fucked up us niggers are. There used to be a time when the word bitch would piss a bitch off. But nowadays I see and hear women refering to themselves as such as a term of endearment, or a term of empowerment. How can you be offended by a word that is a term of endearment? Beyond that, how can you be offended if someone other than bitches and niggers use the word? Can one of you niggers explain that shit?

"I love America more than any other country in the world and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually." - James Baldwin

I think I'll stop using the word nigger from here on out. As fucked up as niggers are, I think I'll start refering to them as crabs. I mean, thats what we all are. We're all a bunch of fuckin crabs aren't we? We lay at the bottom of the ocean eating fish turds. Yup, we eat whats left over from the fishes (white people). Oh we're not? Then why are we the number one consumers by race in this country? How come niggers only account for 5% as far as business ownership in this country? Yeah, we're crabs snatched up from the worlds ocean, and we now reside in the bucket thats America. Thats who we really are. Sadly, some of us crabs have forgotten the ocean in an attempt to fit in with the big fishes of this country. Now that I think about it, thats probably the reason crab niggers claw on top of one another trying to get out. But we're so stupid, we don't realize that once we make it out of the bucket we get our asse's ate up at Red Lobster.

I'm done fuckin wit yall niggers...

I'm going back to listening to the new Nas CD...

Peace out...

Finding a name that suits us is quite troubling. African-American doesn't really work 'cause only a small majority of us have ever been to Africa...we're generations removed. Black? Our skins aren't black. Colored? Yeah, right! (LMBAO)

But I do believe that change is in the air. One of the reasons Jesse flipped out on Obama was that change is stirring, the old ways of conceptualizing our people is changing, and Obama is the one to usher the change...to recognize we as a people need to move forward. We have a tendency to act like crabs in a bucket...not making moves to improve our condition, but making sure to keep our brother or sister down with us.

Sorry, just my two cents.

Hey Korky, longtime no see(LMAO). I do agree that "times are a changing". I just hope that folks don't think it has changed that much because of Obama's run.

A recently released study suggests that there is still a racial divide in this country. Of course there are forces within our own collective that work against us. But I think the "outside forces" are whats more important.

The brother smoking crack ain't the one holding us back(LMAO).

robusta barista said...

Thank you, RiPpa. Nice to "see" you again!

But hasn't there always been a racial divide amongst us? I don't know, it never seems to change. I've found that when one black person is doing well, it's another black person who's bound and determined to knock them down.

I thought it would have been a damn shame if Pastor Jeremiah Wright's comments would have harmed Obama's campaign. He was the one and only person who could have done it...not Hilary!

And to this I say, yes, there certainly is divisiveness in the black community.

It's crabs in a barrel or crabs in a pot, but I've never heard of crabs in bucket. Although they'd fit in fine there.

The other thing is didn't Jackson say nigga, and not nigger? There's a world of difference in the meaning of the two words within the black community. If he had said nigger, I'd be mad. I thought he said nigga which ain't no big deal since most black folks I've know use it. Hell, I might go chill with my nigga after I finish writing this.

About the crabs thing: you're friggin' right. As a people, we aren't as supportive to one another as we could be from the playground to grown folks politics. Black folks are sort of like economists: stick 50 in a room and you'll get 50 different opinions.

I personally hate the way we've trashed Jackson for making an angry comment to another brotha that he thought was private. Yeah, it was dumb given that he was at Fox, but that's not my point.

My point is that a lot of us have given him the heave-ho, and were in not for Jesse and others of his generation busting into a new frontier, Barack would still be a civil rights attorney in Chicago.

We see more of this music. Remember Soldja Boy? My kids and their friends were dancing their asses off all last year and even had me out of the chair, but as soon Ice T dissed his fun party music and told him to suck a dick to promote his own CD and SB dissed him back, a lot of folks were hating on him.

In short, we'd be better off if we had some loyalty instead of trashing folks for one or two perceived or real mistakes. And you're 100% right - those who hate us feed on our conflict and disagreements - which all groups have - and feed it back to us like a poison.

I don't know all the predators that feasts on crabs, but they scare me even more than other crabs because they put us in the pot in the first place.

Like I said, good post.
