    I’m not defending anyone for using the N-word!  Black artist’s have been the N-word in their group names & songs for years.  [i.e., NWA comes to mind].  It may be provocative but we as Black people get what we sow!

    … and we have nothing to show for it!  🙁

      yeah black people are contradicting themselves but that’s because some are idiots who don’t care about anybody but themselves. Like Lee Daniels being pissed that Nicole Kidman wouldn’t say the n-word some black people are stuck on stupid.

    i’m glad somebody finally said something honest instead of trying to kiss “the throne’s” butt. It seems nowadays people are just speaking out so they can get more celebrity friends- or to support the ones they have.  i.e. Nicki Minaj at Summer Jam. No one can tell me, that not ONE urban platform or black celebrity had a negative thing to say about Young Money or Nicki… as Cash out said “I DOUBT IT”
