Suge Knight

Call Me a Ni**a

Not An African American

121613_suge_knight_launch_v2
Suge Knight is offended when people call him African American, because he's NOT African.  On the other hand, he doesn't have a problem with the word, "Ni**a."

Suge says it's offensive to label all Black people African American.  And he goes further ... he thinks it's ridiculous that only rappers can use the word, "Ni**a."  He thinks if it can be used by some, it should be used by all.

At first his theory sounds a little shocking, but maybe he has a point.

So we gotta ask...

This just goes to show how ignorant blacks, african-americans or what the hell y'all want to be called are. Education and getting to know more about your history is the only remedy that can change the problem and challenges blacks are facing. Whether y'all like it or not, as long as their is black on your damn skin, you are African. Yes, slavery happened a long time ago and it was an atrocity but now everyone can make the best out of themselves due to the opportunity in America. But no, blacks or African Americans do not. Rather they want to be rappers, basketball players or football players. The so-called African- Americans make fun of Africans who are immigrants in this country but eventually, those Africans make the best out of what they have and become better people in this country. Some of the Africans americans say they do bot have any connection with Africa. To hell you do. The more you get to know about you geneology, the better you get a clear understanding of your history and look for a way to fix your errors or mistake. Blacks say they have more things in common with White Americans than Africans but the fact is those Whites had families who immigrated here form Italy, UK, Ukraine etc but they keep in touch with their ancestral descent. Do not blame slavery on you not knowing about Africa because even the White men and Asians go to Africa till

date to get to get acquainted with the people and know them better. This is the reason Aficans are prefered to yall ignorant and useless slaves. Because they are more heeding to advice and are educated. I could go on to say more. The reason BLACKS/ ****** OR ***** as yall want to be called are called African American is because you all have not found where you are from in Africa. *****ians call themselves either *****ians or *****ian. Americans and also Ghanians call themselves Ghanian- Americans. This is the reason why of all the countries in the world with black and whites, Racism and race tensions are more prevalent in america because of black people being stubborn and ignorant. Get educated and embrace your heritage because that is the only way the black community can be saved... As for Suge Knight, he is a big, tall and fat disgrace.

I think he's onto something. So called African-Americans aren't pure African. Almost 100% of them are part white. Africans don't come in the color range that so called African Americans come in. It's a unique identity. He is asserting his American identity. I am white but I think he's right about this. Besides, calling black people African- suggests (subconsciously) that they don't belong here, when they were here since before the founding of this country.

Here's an ideal. How about watch "Ten Years a Slave" and read up on Black History before posting the stupid ass Question!
