Why I Don’t Say the Word Nigga?

For the longest, ever since I was born, I’ve heard the word “Nigga”. Ignorant people use it to convey an emotion they want to get out. It’s a tricky word though because you never know the intention behind the person that’s saying it. It use to be a word only blacks used, now everyone is saying it. People say it when they’re mad, happy, indifferent, and that’s why it’s tricky.

I NEVER liked the word. I don’t use it. I feel when you use, it shows that you’re incompetent or angry. In the past blacks used it to show comradery, it was a term of endearment. But I have to argue with that, it’s a hateful word. To me the word “nigga” means anything you don’t like or that goes against you. When you’re mad, you call someone a “nigga”. Society doesn’t talk about it enough, but that word is poison. It’s hateful. It carries hate, every time you say it, you’re spewing hate out of your being. There’s a reason, that word causes so many issues. If it was a “cool” or good word, it wouldn’t get so much backlash when used. You know the feeling you get when you hear the word; toxic people may like it but for sane individuals, it bothers us. It’s a curse word. A “nigga” to me is something that opposes the black community, or you. It’s an offensive word, and I wish more people treated it as such.

Speaking to the black community: we must get out of the habit of saying that word. It’s a bad word that curses us. How do we love ourselves when we use such a hateful word? You can’t love yourself from a real level if you use that word and you’re black. It starts with us. If we want to see change and gain RESPECT FOR OURSELVES, WE MUST STOP USING IT. I don’t want that word to live on, in the next 100 years I want it to be gone, it’s not needed. It’s repulsive, and it’s the number one thing keeping us oppressed. As black people, we are role models. Different ethnicities look to us because we have made the biggest impact, if we keep using the word it’s going to continue the hate cycle in the world. I believe if we stop using it, so will everyone else, it starts with us.
