White people loooove to feel oppressed about not getting to say the n-word
It’s just a taste of what minorities face every day
by Ari Bines
I always find it funny when the very people who created the trigger word to oppress black people now makes headlines whenever caught using it. Some call it irony, I call it good ol' karma. The one time white people are systemically restricted (by a word) they like to consider themselves "oppressed."
White people wanna be oppressed so badly. Yes you can be broke, work 2 jobs, and god knows what else but we can and always have been able to vote. We were never a slave in this country. We successfully committed genocide against Natives, but you say you have no white privilege.

Why can't white people use the n word? We don't restrict the black from saying any words ,then why should they do that to us?

Any person of color—particularly black—who finds themselves fighting a racial battle online over who's qualified to say it just validates the fact even more that white people seem to want to be oppressed.
I really just think that there's a lot of white guilt going around and the whole notion that "it's racist if you don't let us say it" is just faking a way for someone to feel bad for your white-privileged ass.
To me, the n-word is the only so-called "black privilege" that exists for my people, and it's not even a good privilege to have. It's really nothing but an ancient, foul-ass word to be used overall. But unfortunately, it's all us niggas got that they don't. And for some, I secretly think it eats away at them like this guy:
But honestly, if I had the chance to one day leave my house without thoughts of potentially going to prison for life for carrying two joints in my pocket or subconsciously wondering "is this the day I get mistaken for some other black person and end up with a bullet in my head?" I may actually get a good night's rest.
White people asking you why they can’t use the “n” word is basically them being pc about calling you a nigger

Even the most notorious cultural appropriator of appropriators, Rachel Dolezal, is the epitome of willingly choosing oppression. Unfortunately for her, doing more stupid shit like selling 'Coolest Prince in the Hood' sweatshirts to protest H&M is a reminder to us all that she's still a white woman playing dress up in black culture.
And why would you want to call a black person the n word? Like I said b4 bc of its history white ppl can't use it. White people supremacy and privilege makes it very hard for them to swallow this notion that they "cant" do something. Ya think ya entitled to own the world itself

I'll never really know when the n-word will just fucking die already like the other whack words our parents used to use, but I'm pretty sure it won't be extinct in my lifetime. And even when (if?) it dies, no — you still can't say it.

It’s actually really unfair that Taylor Swift gets to know about Taylor Swift’s new album before the rest of us do, but it’s probably for the best. Last night, at the 2018 American Music Awards, the singer-songwriter hinted that she’s working on a new album while accepting her award for best pop/rock album, and Swifties…
