Madonna

Calling My Son the N-Word Was ...

'A Term of Endearment'

breaking news

0118-madona-GettyMadonna says she had no idea people would take such offense over her use of the n-word yesterday -- even though at 55 she probably should.

Madge released a statement moments ago saying she's not a racist ... and her use of the hashtag "#disni**a" in reference to her son on Instagram Friday was not meant as a racial slur.

Madonna explains, "There's no way to defend the use of the word. It was all about intention ... It was used as a term of endearment toward my son who is white."


Madonna adds, "I appreciate that it's a provocative word and I apologize if it gave people the wrong impression. Forgive me."

Translation: I should stay off Instagram.

For those who don't know. Tupac and Modanna used to date for a short period of time. Tupac had to break it up because black women were getting upset. True story. Madonna is kool, she gets a pass.

I appeal to the government of Malawi to please remove these kids. Money is no substitute for genuine love.

Madonna is an idiot, and all of the morons here that think honkey is the same as that horrible word are wrong. White people have not been oppressed, enslaved, murdered and abused in mass numbers hearing the word honkey. Shame on you Madonna.

Just My Opinion    

MADONNA, HUN. THE BLACKS "OWN" THAT WORD, OR THINK THEY DO. THEY CAN CALL EACH OTHER THAT, BUT USE THE N WORD WHEN NEED BE, OR TO GET WHAT THEY WANT. IF THEY WERE REALLY OFFENDED AND HATE HEARING THAT WORD, WOULD THEY CALL THEIR OWN RACE THAT? HELL NO!!
AS IN "OWNING" THAT WORD, WHITES ARE NOT ALLOWED TO EVEN SAY IT TO ANOTHER WHITE PERSON NOW.

THE TRUE MEANING OF THE N WORD:

A person of any race or origin regarded as contemptible, inferior, ignorant, etc.
