It is a well-known fact that white people cannot say nigga, nigger (the-word-that-must-not-be-named) or any variation of this racial pejorative. Even using the word “niggardly” is a daring attempt at circumnavigating the nefarious undertones that haunt the term for its similarity to the word that-must-not-be-named.
No, it is advised that white people never, ever utter the term nigger, nigga, nig, ni-gah or whatever slang adaptation of the phrase is uttered by Black people when they self-identify.
Murder, rape or any deviant/abhorrent act that can be imagined pales in comparison to the white person caught dropping a nigger bomb from their mouth. The fallout from this bomb is more radioactive and potent than the nuclear fallout from a hydrogen bomb and the shelf-life of this action lasts eternally. Just ask Michael Richards.
Now another individual dares utter the dreaded word in the company of Black people and for this action a veritable public execution is necessary to demonstrate that no one – not even Mel Gibson – is allowed to say “nigger” except Black people when addressing each other in a playful, mocking or denigrating tone:
Dr. Laura Schlessinger announced Tuesday night that she would end her radio show following her N-word rant last week.
“My contract is up for my radio show at the end of the year and I’ve made the decision not to do radio anymore,” she told Larry King. “The reason is I want to regain my First Amendment rights. I want to be able to say what’s on my mind and in my heart and what I think is helpful and useful without somebody getting angry, some special interest group deciding this is the time to silence a voice of dissent and attack affiliates, attack sponsors. I’m sort of done with that.”
Dr. Laura emphasized that she is “not retiring” but rather just ending her radio show.
“I’m not retiring, I’m not quitting, I feel energized actually,” she said. “Stronger and freer to say the things that I believe need to be said for people in this country.
Here is the transcript of the call:
Newscast Media — Media Matters obtained the audio where Dr. Laura Schlessinger says the word “nigger” 11 times to a caller. Schlessinger wrapped up by telling the caller she had a “chip on her shoulder.” Below is the entire transcrpit:
SCHLESSINGER: Jade, welcome to the program.
CALLER: Hi, Dr. Laura.
CALLER: I’m having an issue with my husband where I’m starting to
grow very resentful of him. I’m black, and he’s white. We’ve been
around some of his friends and family members who start making
racist comments as if I’m not there or if I’m not black. And my
husband ignores those comments, and it hurts my feelings. And he
acts like –
SCHLESSINGER: Well, can you give me an example of a racist
comment? ‘Cause sometimes people are hypersensitive. So tell me
what’s — give me two good examples of racist comments.
CALLER: OK. Last night — good example — we had a neighbor come
over, and this neighbor — when every time he comes over, it’s
always a black comment. It’s, “Oh, well, how do you black people like
doing this?” And, “Do black people really like doing that?” And for a
long time, I would ignore it. But last night, I got to the point where it
SCHLESSINGER: I don’t think that’s racist.
CALLER: Well, the stereotype –
SCHLESSINGER: I don’t think that’s racist. No, I think that —
SCHLESSINGER: No, no, no. I think that’s — well, listen, without
giving much thought, a lot of blacks voted for Obama simply ’cause
he was half-black. Didn’t matter what he was gonna do in office, it
was a black thing. You gotta know that. That’s not a surprise. Not
everything that somebody says — we had friends over the other
day; we got about 35 people here — the guys who were gonna start
playing basketball. I was going to go out and play basketball. My
bodyguard and my dear friend is a black man. And I said, “White men
can’t jump; I want you on my team.” That was racist? That was
CALLER: How about the N-word? So, the N-word’s been thrown
SCHLESSINGER: Black guys use it all the time. Turn on HBO, listen to
a black comic, and all you hear is nigger, nigger, nigger.
CALLER: That isn’t –
SCHLESSINGER: I don’t get it. If anybody without enough melanin
says it, it’s a horrible thing; but when black people say it, it’s
affectionate. It’s very confusing. Don’t hang up, I want to talk to you
some more. Don’t go away.
I’m Dr. Laura Schlessinger. I’ll be right back.
SCHLESSINGER: I’m Dr. Laura Schlessinger, talking to Jade. What did
you think about during the break, by the way?
CALLER: I was a little caught back by the N-word that you spewed
out, I have to be honest with you. But my point is, race relations —
SCHLESSINGER: Oh, then I guess you don’t watch HBO or listen to
any black comedians.
CALLER: But that doesn’t make it right. I mean, race is a
SCHLESSINGER: My dear, my dear –
CALLER: — since Obama’s been in office –
SCHLESSINGER: — the point I’m trying to make –
CALLER: — racism has come to another level that’s unacceptable.
SCHLESSINGER: Yeah. We’ve got a black man as president, and we
have more complaining about racism than ever. I mean, I think that’s
CALLER: But I think, honestly, because there’s more white people
afraid of a black man taking over the nation.
SCHLESSINGER: They’re afraid.
CALLER: If you want to be honest about it [unintelligible]
SCHLESSINGER: Dear, they voted him in. Only 12 percent of the
population’s black. Whites voted him in.
CALLER: It was the younger generation that did it. It wasn’t the older
white people who did it.
SCHLESSINGER: Oh, OK.
CALLER: It was the younger generation –
SCHLESSINGER: All right. All right.
CALLER: — that did it.
SCHLESSINGER: Chip on your shoulder. I can’t do much about that.
CALLER: It’s not like that.
SCHLESSINGER: Yeah. I think you have too much sensitivity –
CALLER: So it’s OK to say “nigger”?
SCHLESSINGER: — and not enough sense of humor.
CALLER: It’s OK to say that word?
SCHLESSINGER: It depends how it’s said.
CALLER: Is it OK to say that word? Is it ever OK to say that word?
SCHLESSINGER: It’s — it depends how it’s said. Black guys talking to
each other seem to think it’s OK.
CALLER: But you’re not black. They’re not black. My husband is
SCHLESSINGER: Oh, I see. So, a word is restricted to race. Got it.
Can’t do much about that.
CALLER: I can’t believe someone like you is on the radio spewing out
the “nigger” word, and I hope everybody heard it.
SCHLESSINGER: I didn’t spew out the “nigger” word.
CALLER: You said, “Nigger, nigger, nigger.”
SCHLESSINGER: Right, I said that’s what you hear.
CALLER: Everybody heard it.
SCHLESSINGER: Yes, they did.
CALLER: I hope everybody heard it.
SCHLESSINGER: They did, and I’ll say it again –
CALLER: So what makes it OK for you to say the word?
SCHLESSINGER: — nigger, nigger, nigger is what you hear on HB –
CALLER: So what makes it –
SCHLESSINGER: Why don’t you let me finish a sentence?
SCHLESSINGER: Don’t take things out of context. Don’t double N —
NAACP me. Tape the —
CALLER: I know what the NAACP –
SCHLESSINGER: Leave them in context.
CALLER: I know what the N-word means and I know it came from a
white person. And I know the white person made it bad.
SCHLESSINGER: All right. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Can’t have this argument. You know what? If you’re that hypersensitive about color and don’t have a sense of humor, don’t marry out of your race. If you’re going to marry out of your race, people are going to say, “OK, what do blacks think? What do whites think? What do Jews think? What do Catholics think?”
Of course there isn’t a one-think per se. But in general there’s “think.” And what I just heard from Jade is a lot of what I hear from black-think — and it’s really distressting [sic] and disturbing. And to put it in its context, she said the N-word, and I said, on HBO, listening to black comics, you hear “nigger, nigger, nigger.” I didn’t call anybody a nigger. Nice try, Jade. Actually, sucky try.
Need a sense of humor, sense of humor — and answer the question. When somebody says, “What do blacks think?” say, “This is what I think. This is what I read that if you take a poll the majority of blacks think this.” Answer the question and discuss the issue. It’s like we can’t discuss anything without saying there’s -isms?
We have to be able to discuss these things. We’re people — goodness gracious me. Ah — hypersensitivity, OK, which is being bred by black activists. I really thought that once we had a black president, the attempt to demonize whites hating blacks would stop, but it seems to have grown, and I don’t get it. Yes, I do. It’s all about power. I do get it. It’s all about power and that’s sad because what should be in power is not power or righteousness to do good –that should be the greatest power.
Reading the transcripts shows how hypersensitive Black people are when it comes to what qualifies as racist or not.
Nevertheless, when a word is off-limits to one segment of the population, but used freely by another segment of the population, you know you live under tyranny. The price of using the term “nigger”, if you are white, is great; your reputation is ruined, your past comes under scrutiny; and all of your associates are also tarnished because you dared use a forbidden word and by the process of guilt-by-association, bath them in the damning fires of racism.
Black people have no problem using the term nigger as a joyous salutation or a derogatory put-down, constantly showcasing the awesome diversity of the word and its nebulous meaning when a Black person utilizes it in speech.
But a white person even considering to use the phrase? Recall this is a nation where commandeering a Wal-Mart PA system and jokingly stating that “All Black people must leave the store” is grounds for national media attention and an ABP from the police to locate the insidious individual spewing hateful invective.
In the history of rhetoric and speech has one word existed that has caused more heart-ache, grief and pain – heck, it even had a funeral! – than the word-that-must-not-be-named?
White people have been conditioned to recoil in shock and sheer terror at the white person who dares utter the-word-that-must-not-be-named.
White people cower in fear from this word, knowing that to wield this phrase is to invite doom and ruin into ones quarters.
Since it is common knowledge that those who harbor racist views also suffer from a mental illness, it is generally accepted that only those white people who belong in padded rooms would dare use the word-that-must-not-be-named.
Submitting to the power of Black Run America (BRA) means capitulating and acquiescing to this dictum, that the word-that-must-not-be-named can never part from ones thoughts into vocalized form. White people are forbidden from using this confusingly affectionate, yet demeaning term that Black people use liberally in their speech.
However, the day Black Run America ends, one can only imagine the spectacle of millions upon millions of people celebrating in the streets as the former inhabitants of the Galactic Empire did in Return of the Jedi. The power and fear of the word will be gone, the once lethal Damocles Sword it represents finally made dull and innocent.
Free from the bonds of tyranny and the fear of persecution, millions of people will pull a William Wallace and definitely yell one word. It won’t be ‘freedom‘, though, that these people shout, for the word that comes out of the mouths of millions will signify that freedom is once again in fashion.
The-word-that-must-not-be-named, The-N word, that phrase which haunts those living in 2010 America like a ghost, creating frightful situations whenever white people dare use it, will be yelled in unison signifying the ultimate catharsis.
The potency, the venom of the word only exists because people lack the vision to understand the only antidote to vernacular tyranny is courage.
