Katt Williams

Quentin Tarantino Has No Business Using the N-Word

EXCLUSIVE

1229_katt_williams_QT_videoIn between getting out of jail and getting in the middle of a parking lot brawl, Katt Williams took the time to talk to TMZ about "Django Unchained" ... and threatened to beat the crap out of Quentin Tarantino if he gets the chance.

Williams didn't voice his opinion in a polite way like Spike Lee did. First he threatened to punch QT in the face, then told us, "Quentin Tarantino thinks he can say the N-word. But I checked with all of Ni**adom and nobody knows where he got his pass from. I hope he didn't get it from Samuel L. Jackson and Jamie Foxx cause they aren't going to help you when I see you."

When our photog tried to compare QT to Steven Spielberg (who made "Amistad" in 1997), Katt shot back, "Quentin Tarantino is no Steven Spielberg. Steven Spielberg doesn't wanna be black, Quentin Tarantino thinks he is. So when he meets a real ni**a, we'll see if he is or not."

Quentin, you've been warned.

Looks like the only one "KATT" can beat up is Himself....He is a Phoney Piece of S#it!....he does not own the "N" word....and the other piece of S#it is Spike Lee. HE DOES NOT Own The "N" Word Either....anyone Black or White or any Color can use the "N" Word....Those Two Fools are Racist *******s....

Kat Williams talks crap about white people all the time in his stand up routines. Quentin is a director not a racist leader. Two black actors are in that movie so whatever Kat and spike say is irrelevant.

The rule is simple; you have to be a ****** to use the word ******. That's not complicated.

BB NOT BB said:
Oh big deal if it sounds like monkey. Blacks call whites honkey, isn't that like calling them geese

I have white friends of whom i treasure greatly. Why would I call them a term filled with hate? Your logic seems off.

After googling the pronunciation of Django, it appears Katt Willams is correct. The first letter IS silent. It's pronounced jango. As Ray points out, Django sounds strangely close to the latin term meaning monkey, chango. I'm not all the cool with someone stating that I'm their "_igga" , but I'm 100% sure I'm not cool with someone possibly calling blacks monkeys on the sly.

A Black history lesson seems to be in order. To be clear, there are two forms of the "N" word. There is the "N" word used during slavery which is spelled "_igger". This word is filled with hate and vitriol. Quite the opposite, there is also the "N" word created by blacks to hollow out the hateful meaning of the former "N" word, and replace it with the meaning of brotherly love instead. This "N" word is spelled "_igga". When you hear a black man say to another, "this is my "_igga", he means to say this is my brother-in-love. I agree with whites who correctly point out that our constitution provides for freedom of speech. My question to you is- Do you want the right to say the "N" word spelled "_igger" , which denotes hate; or do you want to use the "N" word spelled "_igga" , which will then mean that you too relate to the plight of blacks still felt today, and that you too are a brother-in-love, not a brother of hate. One denotes hate, the other love. You choose?

Here's an idea, how about YOU PEOPLE stop using the "N-word" and then maybe it will die off and you brain-dead morons can stop being "offended" by it? How does that sound? Because asians enjoy being called "chinks" and whites like to be called "crackers", etc. etc. Do YOU PEOPLE think you are the only race on this planet to be referred to in a derogatory manner? And why is it, YOU PEOPLE can "use the N-word", but every other race isn't allowed to? o.O Got some news for ya, the intelligent "black" community doesn't use the word because they are aware it brings down "their people" as a whole. Do you know what the word originally meant? = Ignorant. And that's exactly why it was used for slaves in "the good ol' days". They couldn't read or write, and were rarely (if ever) taught in schools. Guess what, the term is still relevant today as most of the people it refers to are indeed ignorant...and liberal. *sigh*

There may be some confusion here. Blacks aren't using the "N" word ending in the letter "er". Blacks us the "N" word ending in "igga" similar to "jigga" . There is a difference. "_igga" is a term of endearment. "_igger" is a racial slur. My question to the white brothers and sisters who correctly argue that the constitution offers freedom of speech- Do you want to use the word ending in "s" or the word ending in "er". After years of oppression blacks had every right to t

As a black person, I just want to say the use of the N-word is historically accurate,and should be in the film. But, what I find funny is how all these black men are upset with that word, but not one black man is upset over the brutal rape and beating scene of a black woman on film. Amazing, black men want to say oh it's racist, but ignore that. It a fact that before dumb black folks starting embracing that sadistic word, white folks use it dehumanize us as a race, nobody should get a pass, even those rappers that use it as a form of saying hi, hello.
