When non-Blacks use the Term “Nigga”

dickrich

Dudes remember hitting the courts as youngsters; calling out who they were.

“I’m Iverson!”

“I’m Jordan!”

“I’m LeBron!”

Whatever.

Yet we’re shocked when we hear non-Blacks use the term “nigga” because we don’t realize that’s exactly what they’re doing.

We’re their heroes, but the worst kind; living ones.

People can’t worship you thoroughly until you’re dead. Ask Tupac and Jesus.

The word “nigga” in the mouth of a non-Black gives the user power. They get to, if not look like one of their heroes, then certainly speak like one.

Also, it makes them cool. Because what is a hero if not cool?

Finally, it conveys that cool upon it’s object.

When non-Blacks use the term “nigga” they’re almost never referring to, well, niggas.

If they’re spics, they’re referring to other spics, if they’re crackas, they’re referring to other crackas, if they’re chinks; chinks, if they’re fags; fags: whatever.

Notice: you never hear two young Black dudes on some, “Whaddup, My Heeb?”

That wouldn’t be cool.

Most importantly, the main reason that non-Blacks use the term “nigga” is because, after observing us in the flesh, non-Blacks get a sneaking suspicion that either we know something, or we’re up to something.

Having heard about us, they haven’t heard good things. They’re fed disease statistics and bullshit Black-on-Black crime numbers and theorize that any poor bastard trapped in our flesh must be absolutely miserable.

And then they see one of us, or a few, and then they see us laugh.

Now, you know I’ve written extensively about the fact that laughing barrels were set up because muhfuccas found Black laughter so offensive, but perhaps the most dangerous element to Black laughter is that it makes plain the fact that we ain’t fools; and I mean that in two ways.

1. There are few better indicators of intelligence than a sense of humor.

2. Paraphrasing James Baldwin from No Name in the Street, the edge in intelligence that Black children have over other children is due to the fact that Black children realize almost from birth that there’s something very wrong with the country into which they were born.

If nothing else, being non-Black in America means the freedom to ignore a lotta shit that simply don’t make sense.

“The land of the free” was populated by slaves?

“Rule of law” is an import?

Each non-Black American mind hits it’s Matrix moment when it has to choose which pill to take, and while almost everybody thinks they’d be gangster and go for red, the truth outs itself as otherwise.

Imagine being nearly twenty when finally you can no longer deny that all the math you’ve been given just don’t add up.

The world seems to be populated by two kinds of people: those happily indifferent, and those angry and rebellious at having been lied to.

There’s pussy, money and drugs in the first group.

There’s picket lines and picket signs in the second.

Which pill are you taking?

But, of course, niggas don’t have that luxury.

Our Matrix moment is at, like, 3. And even if we would want the blue pill, it’s not an option.

So we laugh at how ridiculous this shit all is.

And that’s what we know.

So each self-loving Black takes every opportunity to chip away at the facade of this bullshit, whether it be by contradictory speech, stereotype-disproving action, or outright rebellion.

And that’s what we’re up to.

Basically, we should probably be flattered that so many non-Blacks wanna call themselves “nigga”.

After all, everybody jumps onto the bandwagon when a team starts to really look good.
