Suge Knight

Call Me a Ni**a

Not An African American

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...

How about just black? I'm half black and sick of people using African American. Who said all black people were from Africa? Stupidest classification ever.

I never thought I would agree with Suge Knight on anything. He's right about African-American because no he was not born in Africa. Why can't they just be American? Lets stop segregating each other. Because my ancestors came from the Canary Islands does that make me Spanish-American? No. And THANK YOU for not being a hypocrite about n***a. If some people can say it and call eachother n***as, then everyone should be "allowed" to say it... Or no one, black people included. It's nice to see someone from the black community making some sense on these issues. Unlike Al and Jesse who get rich keeping everyone seperated.

I'm white, but I don't insist on being called a Euro-American. But the N word is horribly derogatory. How about not segregating ourselves by classification? Most Americans who have had ancestors in the States are mixed. If you want to refer yourself by the country/region /continent your ancestors are from better bring out the list- we're all mixed with something.

Okay, you can’t even spell out the word so I think that pretty much shows which one most people will use.
