23755, Black was/is a default term...

When you have no direct connection to your homeland, no since of your original history and culture...what is left?

Your appearance, that's what.

I know that this argument can be used and applied to "black". Yes, black panthers, yes, black power, yes, black is beautiful...yes, yes, yes. But I don't hear brothers walking around like "Whassup, black" as much as I do "Whassup, nigga?" "Black" is being used in almost every hip-hop song ever created. "Black" leaves no residual feeling of "WHAT THE FUCK ARE THEY SAYING THAT FOR?"

You misunderstand me...I don't give a damn what people think about our language. My thing is that "nigger" or "nigga" has a whole lot of shit attached to it. I personally use "nigga" too much. But this is how we are identifying ourselves. It seems the further time goes along, the less like "blacks" we act and the more like "niggers" we seem.

But this is a debate...you are entitled to ya opinion.
