IF YOU ARE NOT BLACK, YOU CAN’T SAY NIGGA

February 22, 2019

This shouldn’t be hard. I was at work today. This white girl who acts like “Bhad Babie” said “nigga” to her hispanic friend. This is a day after I had to have the resource officer come talk about the word after having to scold to two classes about not saying it. One class had no people off color in it besides myself. This is a predominantly white high school in Florida, so of course these types of things are inevitable. But Bhad Babie 2.0 decides to tell me she can say nigga, “I’m not saying the hard R so it don’t matter. I’m letting you know I can say whatever I want.” It took the wings of my ancestors to help me not lose my cool. Her weak black friends sat silently. I scolded them about not speaking up to their friend for saying that. I really don’t have the energy to go through this because it’s exhausting but……

Please tell your non black friends that they cannot say nigga. No how, no way, no day, can’t say, none of that…………

I’m tired. I need a drink because it’s been a long week. I’m going to see Frankie Beverly & Maze tonight in concert so hopefully this turns my Black History Month around. Y’all have a good weekend with a drink and maybe even a blunt for me.

Black History Month has been weird as hell.
