@mypitts2......you did get one part right younger generations don't care. My son calls his black friends "his niggas". I whipped around waiting for his 3 friends to knock him out and they said they're fine with it. In fact they told him to say it!! All of them have been taught about slavery but it changes nothing.
A black american is redundant. Unless we are white americans, asian americans....people are black, white, asian, etc. If black people don't want to be called a certain name then don't call each other that. You don't hear about a song crackers in Paris.
Lead by example or get trampled.
This is all a big joke, and a laugh. I think some of these comments are right on, don't use the word yourself if you don't want others to use it. And everyone needs to settle down there is not a single person alive that has first hand knowledge of what it was like being a slave, & I think we should move on because we are in the 21'st century.
Who even said it is OK to use the term "us crackers." I think that term is NOT appropriate, either. It is as bad as ANYONE using the N word - no matter what your ethnic background is. Neither term or phrase, depicting a group of people, is acceptable. EVER!!!
As usual they bring up the race card-come on Gwennie Paltrow a racist? It's the name of the song-they are in the picture, you can see Jay Z standing there. Change the name of the song & stop calling each other "Niggas" if it bothers you so much. Oh & be4 u all jump on me I have a black nephew who I love more than anything in the world. We don't use the word, we don't like the word & we even told him no to use the word. Not only that they true definition of the word has nothing to do with a black person. It was originally used to describe a "ignorant person". Then over the decades it was used as a slang for black people. I hate when anyone uses the word but mostly when black people use the word against each other. I think it's time to stop calling names & get rid of the word altogether. One way is to stop using it in songs etc.
Wow!!! Can't believe this is even an issue. Like most, I am inclined to agree. NOT A BIG DEAL!!! Don't want anyone to drop the N word??? Then don't drop it yourselves. It's the name of the song!! Duh!!!! If she'd been black, this wouldn't even be an issue. Geez!!! Lighten up, alittle. Because us "crackers" are alittle over this "poor me because I'm black" crap!!! I have black friends. I have white friends. Just bc one says the N word doesn't make them racist!! Let me guess..??? Here comes the Reverend & the rest of the clan!!
I'm black and my husband and I have taught our children that the N word is a bad word. I don't think anyone should use that word. I don't blame Gwyneth because it's the name of the song, the song shouldn't have that name.
Who the F*ck cares!
I live in the south, and the white men my family hang around think its ok to use the word because they are all friends....how about this, my black people, stop referring to yourself as niggas n maybe, just maybe, the white people you hang with wouldn't think its ok to call you that!
You all just looking to start crap, lets love one another....the way we are going now, I can see they will b serious race wars in the near future.

True. And of course, the country is slowly heading toward a minority-majority, which will make many of the old black-white racial disputes obsolete. (And they're already headed that way.)
